Cut the lime in 8 pieces and add it to the glass. Muddle to release as much of the oils and juice. Add the remaining ingrediënts and fill the glass for ¾ with crushed ice. Stir to combine and top up with additional crushed ice. Add garnish.
Optional: For a more fruity Caipirinha add fresh fruit to the muddling progress.
I haven't made this drink in ages. But the weather called for it to made (25°C definitely calls for it). Only after sipping this drink there just came one question up in me. Have you ever made a drink with Cachaça outside an Caipirinha or variations of it? You don't see that many use of this beautifull Brazilian product, like it is neglected in the shadow of rum.🤔 Let's go to the drink specs.
The Caipirinha, made out of fresh lime, syrup and Cachaça, is a drink native to Brazil.🇧🇷 The spirit is made out of fresh cane juice, which is fermented and single distilled in Brazil only.🌎 Unlike it's counterpart Rum, which is made from molasses a bypoduct of Sugar and can be distilled a few times depending on style. Cachaça isn't that spicy compared to rum. While on the other hand it's a more gentle version of Rhum Agricole. Oh, and if aged, it can be aged in many types of barrels for a more unique flavor profile🤩.
Cheers everyone, hope you had a good easter.
