The Caipirinha is probably one of the most popular and one of the best cocktails. Its main ingredient is the cachaca and although it is not technically a type of rum, it is still considered one, especially by Brazilian people.
It is a classic favorite by many rum aficionados, with its simple ingredients such as cachaca, muddle lime, and sugar. The recipe is also very flexible and is open for you to use any of your favorite fruits.
½ pc. Lime
1½ to 2½ tsp. Superfine sugar
2 oz. Cachaça
1 pc. Lime wheel for garnish
Cut your lime into small bite-sized wedges.
Combine the lime wedges and sugar in a glass and muddle well until the sugar is dissolved in lime juice.
Fill your glass with cachaca and stir until combined.
Add ice cubes or cracked ice to cool. Garnish it with a lime wheel.
Serve and enjoy your delicious cocktail!
To better dissolve the sugar on your cocktail, you can use superfine sugar. This type of sugar has finer crystals that can more easily dissolve in your drink. Another option is to use simple syrup and other sweeteners such as honey syrup or Agave nectar.
