CAIPIRINHA – BRAZILIAN COCKTAIL
This drink is one of our favorites and are a great accompaniment to our succulent skewers! The Brazilian Cachaça can be found in any liquor store (look for Leblon brand or 51 brand). You made also replace the Cachaça with vodka, if you choose. It is a very strong spirit, so please enjoy in moderation.
- 2 fl oz of Cachaça (distilled spirit made from sugar cane juice)
- 1 lime cut into 8 wedges
- 2 tsp of refined sugar
- A few handfuls of crushed ice
Place the lime and sugar into a 20 oz. glass shaker and muddle (mash the two ingredients together using a muddler or a wooden spoon). Fill the glass with crushed ice to the 16 fl. oz. mark and add the Cachaça until the ice is completely covered. Shake well and enjoy!
