Brazilian Caipirinha Cocktail


  • 4 limes, cut into small chunks
  • 5 tablespoons/60 g granulated sugar
  • Ice cubes, coarsely crushed
  • 1 cup/240 ml of cacha?a
  • 1/2 cup/120 ml club soda (optional)


  1. Divide the lime chunks pulp side up among 4 highball glasses. Sprinkle with the sugar, dividing equally. Crush the limes with a pestle just enough to release the juice, but don't over do it - otherwise the drinks will be bitter.
  2. Fill the glasses with the crushed ice. Add the cacha?a and stir to mix. Add the club soda, if desired, then stir again and enjoy!
