How to make the perfect Caipirinha

Transport yourself to the sandy shores of Copacabana with a charming Caipirinha.  With just four ingredients it may appear a simple cocktail to recreate, however it is not to be underestimated. There must be a fine fusion of tartness from the citrus, sweetness from the sugar and, of course, flavour and potency from the Brazilian base spirit for this to really shine. Once mastered you can get adventurous by adding different fruits – berries being a particularly tasty option.

Ingredients:

  • 70ml of your preferred cachaça
  • Half a lime
  • 2 teaspoons of sugar
  • Ice

Method:

  • Cut the lime into small wedges.
  • Place the lime and sugar into a small tumbler glass and muddle well.
  • Add a few ice cubes to the glass.
  • Top the drink with cachaça and stir well.
