What is a Caipirinha cocktail?

A Caipirinha is a refreshing and delicious Brazilian cocktail made with cachaça (distilled sugar cane liquor), sugar, and lime. It is the national cocktail of Brazil, and the perfect companion for a hot summer day.

This tart and sweet cocktail is made by muddling lime wedges and sugar in a rocks glass, then adding cachaça and crushed ice. The tartness of the lime is balanced perfectly with the sweetness of the sugar, and the smoothness of the cachaça creates a complex, mouthwatering flavour.

The Caipirinha is best served in a rocks glass, with plenty of crushed ice to keep it cool and refreshing. Its unique flavour profile makes it an excellent choice for those looking for a light, refreshing drink with a bit of a kick.

The typical drinker for a Caipirinha is anyone looking for a light, refreshing cocktail. It is perfect for any occasion, from a quick morning pick-me-up to a night out with friends. Its unique flavour and tartness make it a great choice for those looking for something a bit different.
