How To Prepare Brazilian Caipirinha

A Brazilian national cocktail called Caipirinha is made with cachaça, sugar, and lime. Cachaça is the most common distilled alcoholic drink in Brazil, and it can be consumed by itself or used as a base for a number of mixed beverages.

This refreshing cocktail is simple to prepare: sugar and lime that has been cut into quarters should be gently muddled together with a wooden spoon before adding cachaça and ice. The traditional way to make Caipirinha is in a single large jar that can be shared amongst people, but it can also be served in an old-fashioned glass with a lime wedge garnish.

 

WHEN WAS THE CAIPIRINHA INVENTED?

Although it’s ingrained in Brazilian culture, the history of the caipirinha is not clear. Some stories dated it to the 19th century, when it was enjoyed on sugarcane plantations. Another account says that it evolved from a medicinal tonic of cachaça, green lemon, honey, and garlic used during the Spanish flu epidemic of the early 20th century.

 

RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 lime, cut into wedges

2 teaspoons sugar

2 ounces cachaça

Garnish: lime wheel
