Caipirinha

prepared by and photo by Emily Doscher

Using white rum for this cocktail is a refreshing winner, but Cachaca, a dry Brazilian liquor made from sugarcane, makes it a true Caipirinha.

Size: 2 servings

Ingredients:
1 large lime, quartered
2 tbsp sugar
1/2 cup cachaca or white rum
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
Ice cubes

Directions:

Divide lime and sugar between 2 short glasses.  Using wooden spoon or muddler, mash lime and sugar in each glass.  Add 1/4 cup cachaca and 1 tbsp lemon juice to each glass; stir to blend.  Fill each with ice.
