Caipirinha Brazilian National Cocktail / 巴西卡皮利亚鸡尾酒

Labels: { }

Caipirinha / kai-pee-reen-yah is a Brazilian lime cocktail. Rum-like cachaca liqueur blend together with fresh limes and sugar together with lots of crushed ice. A wonderful summer BBQ drink!
The spirit used to make this cocktail is a colourless liquor made from sugar cane juice, called Cachaça,(pronounced as kuh-sha-suh kuh-sha-suh) and also known as Aguardente de cana-Sugarcane alcohol.

  • 1 Lime
  • 2 oz Cachaça
  • Raw sugar to taste
  • Ice cubes
  • 1个 青柠
  • 2盎司 巴西甘蔗酒
  • 适量原糖
  • 冰块
  1. Wash the lime and roll it on the board to loosen the juices. Cut the lime into pieces and place them in an old-fashion glass.
  2. Gently mash the lime pulp with a wooden pestle. Add sugar and muddle until dissolved into lime juice. Add enough ice cubes and pour in cachaca. Stir to mix and enjoy!

Ahhhh, I had a few of these last year while in South America...they are absolutely delicious, especially when the weather is warm. Thank you for the recipe!

What a terrific cocktail. No driving afterward, though! it is potent...superfine sugar makes it even better.
