Caipirinha is a drink made with the Brazilian cachaça, a distilled alcohol made from sugar cane. You may also use vodka or light rum instead of the cachaça. If you use vodka, its called caipiroska, for rum you say caipirissima.
1 tablespoon of sugar
2 onces of cachaça
4 large ice cubes or 8 smaller one
Quarter the limes and then slice them in even smaller pieces. Place the sliced limes in an old fashioned glass. Add the tablespoon of sugar. Mash it until the sugar dissolves. Pour 2 onces of cachaça (rum or vodka). Add the ice cubes. Stir well and enjoy!
