One of our all time favourite drinks, we recently found this super slick drink at the very cool restaurant and bar, Long Grain in Sydney, The Caipirinha. It is made from Brazilian rum and is very refreshing. The best idea for any New Year’s party is to make this South American favourite punch-style. Your friends will be begging for more.
1 lime, washed
2 teaspoons superfine sugar
2 ounces cachaca
Cut the lime into eighths and place the pieces in a small tumbler. Add the sugar. Using the handle of a wooden spoon, crush the lime wedges. Continue to muddle the mixture until the sugar is dissolved. Fill the glass with crushed ice, or very small ice cubes, and top with cachaa. Stir gently.
