The Caipirinha Cocktail is made with cachaça, a spirit originally developed over 500 years ago from sugar cane, and is known as Brazil’s national drink. 


  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar
  • 4 Key limes, halved and seeded, or 2 small, juicy limes, quartered
  • 2 ounces cachaça


  1. Place the limes into a cocktail shaker and sprinkle with the sugar. Muddle until the sugar has dissolved and the limes are juiced.
  2. Fill a rocks glass with ice and then pour into the cocktail shaker. Add the cachaça and shake the mixture for 30 seconds to combine.
  3. Pour the mixture back into the rocks glass and serve immediately.
