Brazilian Sampling - Caipirinhas

The national drink of Brazil!

  • 2 oz Cachaca
  • 1/2 Lime, cut into 4 quarters
  • 2 t Sugar
  • Ice
  • Club Soda

Muddle the lime and sugar in the bottom of a glass. No need to pulverise the lime unless you like a strong lime flavor, just enough to release the juice. Add a handful of ice. Pour in the Cachaca. Stir. Add a splash of club soda. Stir.

Also good, in case you cannot find Cachaca, was Rum or Vodka. Most people prefered the Cachaca.

The club soda is not standard but I liked it -- lighter flavor for the 103 degree heat yesterday!
