A Brazilian cocktail made with cachaça, lime, sugar, and crushed ice.
It’s Tuesday! The only decision you need to make is bottle or glass. If you choose the latter, I have a tasty libation for you to sample. The caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, and the perfect concoction to sip during your pregame shenanigans. Below is a list of ingredients you’ll need in order to make this refreshment:
- 1 lime
- 2 tablespoons of sugar
- 2 ounces cachaça (Star of the show)
Cut lime into four pieces and sprinkle with sugar (add more sugar to sweeten). Use a muddler, or the end of a spoon, to crush the lime to release the juice. Add crushed ice cubes and cachaça. Shake/stir well. Pour liquor into old-fashioned glass. Voila! You’ve officially made a caipirinha!
Please drink responsibly. This is a powerful alcoholic beverage.
