Caipirinhas are the tastiest blend of tart (because limes), sweet (because sugar) and STRONG (because 80 proof). So if you’re out here in these Olympic streets sipping a caipirinha, (or at home taking the action in from your couch), be easy because the buzz force is strong with this one.
- Yield: 1 cocktail
- 1 lime cut into wedges
- 2 tablespoons raw sugar
- ¼ cup Cachaca
- Muddle lime wedges and sugar together in a cocktail shaker. Add a handful of ice cubes and the Cachaca. Shake until sugar dissolves and pour into a glass.
Rinse your limes so they’re nice and clean and pat them dry before cutting them into wedges.
If you don’t have a proper muddler, use a wooden spoon to press the limes and sugar together.
Shake your caipirinha well, 30-45 seconds, to make sure the sugar is dissolved.
Shaking, Pouring, Drinking!
