A classic caipirinha drink recipe that features lime, a touch of sugar and Brazilian cachaça.


  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • 12 teaspoon granulated sugar
  • 2 ounces cachaça
  • Ice
  • Lime wedges for garnish


In a rocks glass, muddle lime wedges (yes, from the whole lime) and sugar until all of the juices have been released.

Add Cachaça, fill with ice, and stir to chill (or transfer to a cocktail shaker, give it a good shake, and pour everything back into the rocks glass).

Garnish with a lime wedge (optional) and enjoy!


Nowadays Cachaça can easily be found at most liquor stores. If you're unsure, simply Google "where to buy Cachaça near me," and options will populate.

If you have crushed ice, use that. It's more traditional!
