The Caipirinha is the official drink of Brazil! Naturally, this vibrant cocktail is made with the country’s most commonly distilled spirit: Cachaça, a liquor made with sugarcane. The Caipirinha is sweet, citrus-y and totally refreshing.
Cut both ends of the lime and then cut lime in half. Remove the white middle vein (it’s bitter!), cut lime into quarters and add the quarters to the glass.
Add 1 oz of simple syrup to the glass and muddle the ingredients.
Add 2 oz of Cachaça.
Add ice and shake well.
Pour contents into presentation glass.
