Caipirinha


  • Author: Meagan

Description

I’m one of those people who usually buys 2 bags of limes when I go to Costco – so this cocktail was an easy one to try.  Borrowed from the ‘Cocktail Codex’, by Alex Day, Nick Fauchald and David Kaplan, this is a refreshingly delightful drink that can easily handle the rigors of hanging out in the backyard – enjoy!


Scale

Ingredients

For one cocktail;

1 lime (cut in half, and then each half quartered)

1/2 oz. simple syrup (equal parts white sugar and water by weight, stirred together until sugar has dissolved)

1 sugar cube

2 oz. Cachaça (a Brazilian spirit in the rum family, made from fermented sugarcane juice)


Instructions

Put 6 pieces of the lime in a shaker with the simple syrup and sugar cube and gently muddle the lime, being careful to press each piece.  Add the Cachaça and shake with ice, then dump all into a double Old-Fashioned glass.  No garnish required.
