Cachaça is the national spirit of Brazil. From that spirit comes the national cocktail of Brazil, the Caipirinha. Our intrepid host will show you how to make the Caipirinha.
2 ounces cachaça
2 Tbs. sugar
1/2 lime, quartered
If cachaça is not available in your area, you can substitute a good white rum.
Wash the lime, and cut it into quarters.
Put the lime pieces into a heavy tumbler and then add the sugar.
Muddle hard to extract juices and dissolve the sugar.
Fill the glass with ice, then add the cachaça. Stir to mix and chill.
