Caipirinha

on July 30, 2010

This cocktail is a Brazilian cocktail. I had it the first time at one of those “meat orgy” restaurants called “Amazonia”. It was delicious. Then our friend Andre (who is from Brazil) made it for us and his was even better. Love this little drink with a punch! We have a bottle of the liquor, Cachaça but haven’t made it ourselves yet. We will though. The Caipirinha is the national drink of Brazil and is enjoyed in restaurants, bars, and many households throughout the country. It was once almost unknown outside Brazil, the drink has become more popular and more widely available in recent years, in large part due to the rising availability of first-rate brands of cachaça outside Brazil.


INGREDIENTS:

2 lime, cut into quarters

2 tablespoons sugar

2 ounces cachaça

crushed ice

DIRECTIONS:

1. Place two lime quarters into each glass. (Smaller ‘rocks’ glasses are good) Sprinkle with 1 tablespoon sugar in each glass and muddle with a pestle or end of a wooden spoon.

2. Add the remaining lime quarters to each glass and muddle some more. Stir in 1 ounce cachaça into each glass. Fill with crushed ice and stir again.

Makes 2 drinks
