I don’t have a video for this recipe.
If I had a photo, I would most certainly use it. That is... unless the photo I have sucks. For now, you'll just have to picture a big heaping helping of
Caipirinha
...in your mind.
Caipirinha

Caipirinha

Makes 1 - Pronounced ’kaipeereena,’ - this is essentially the official drink of Brazil. It’s made with Cachaca, pronounced ’cachasa’ a sort of rum-like alcohol made from sugar cane. It fun to make and even funner to drink. I know, funner’s not a word - I just like saying it (and after a few of these you will too)

Ingredients

  • 1 lime, cut into small chunks
  • 2 ounces of cachaca
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • Ice cubes

Directions

  1. Place lime pieces at the bottom of a short glass and sprinkle with sugar
  2. Using something like a wooden sppon handle ’muddle’ the lime and sugar - that means to gently crush the limes with the sugar to bring out the juices (if you crush too hard it wil get bitter
  3. Add the cachaca and stir well
  4. Fill with ice and drink, pronounced ’dreenk’
