The Caipirinha is Brazil’s national drink and uniquely refreshing! This cocktail made with cachaça and lime is truly one of a kind.


  • 1/2 lime, cut into wedges
  • 1/2 tablespoon cane sugar
  • 2 ounces cachaça


  1. Add the lime wedges and sugar to a cocktail shaker and muddle (gently mash) to release the juices.
  2. Add the cachaça and fill the shaker with ice. Shake until cold.
  3. Strain the drink into an ice-filled lowball glass. Garnish with lime wedges.
