Description

Caipirinha is the National Cocktail of Brazil. You will need Cachaca, also known as “aguardiente”. This drink was so good and I highly recommend you try it!

If you can’t find Cachaca you can use Rum. Monica served these drinks on the night of the Brazilian Feast and they were wonderful!
Services : 1


Ingredients

– Cachaca (about 2 oz)
– 1 Lime (about 8 wedges)
– 2 to 3 Tablespoons of Sugar
– Crushed ice
– A pestle for the muddling or something that will help you crush the limes


Instructions

8 Steps to a tasty Caipirinha!
