Caipirinha



Ingredients:
  • 1 lime washed and dried
  • 3 or 4 teaspoons granulated sugar (I like it with 4 teaspoons)
  • 2 oz of 'cachaça'
  • crushed ice
FYI: 2 oz is the same as 4 tablespoons or 1/4 cup in case you were wondering
What To Do:







Gather your ingredients.







Cut the lemon in 8 parts. (cut in half, then each half in four parts).




Place the lemon pieces in a cup with wide bottom.
Put the sugar on top.







Press everything with a wooden muddler.





Add cachaça.







Add crushed ice.







Place a saucer over the cup.







Shake it well.


FYI
Some people like caipirinha made with vodka instead of cachaça and in Brazil we call it 'caipiroska'.
You can drink it with a straw.
