Caipirinha

Possibly the best-loved Brazilian cocktail, full of lip-smacking flavor. Litreally translated it means “peasant’s drink”, and it has a reputation as the cocktail that could replace the malaria shot! It gets its kick from the cachaça, a Brazilian spirit distilled from sugarcane juice. In the 1920s and 1930s car king Henry Ford outlawed the Caipirinha in Fordlandia, his company town located in Brazil .

Serious bartenders will make this drink with a long wooden pestle, larger than the usual muddler, to bring out the full flavor of the lime, just as the Brazilians did. Just the cocktail for flaunting on the beach, on the yacht out to sea . . . wherever your heart takes you.
