The caipirinha is the national cocktail of Brazil. Its main ingredient is cachaça, the national spirit of Brazil and third most consumed spirit in the world. The classic Caipirinha is made with fresh lime. Or, make a Fresh Fruit Caipirinha with your favorite in-season fresh fruit, such as pineapple, raspberries, watermelon, or tangerines. AT Sabor we even add herbs such as mint, cilantro, or basil for a unique twist. Or a dash of red pepper.
1 lime, quartered
2 teaspoon brown sugarnbsp;
50 mls cachaca
Chill a rocks glass with cracked ice. Place the lime quarters in the bottom of a mixing glass; add the sugar, and muddle, extracting the juice and the oil in the skin from the lime quarters. Add the cachaca to the mixture in the mixing glass, dump the ice from the rocks glass into the mixing glass, and shake well. Pour the entire contents of the mixing glass back into the chilled rocks glass and serve. We can have as many variations as you like, just replace some of the lime juice with another fruit.
