So, the weekend has arrived once more which means it must be cocktail time.
My favourite cocktail is definitely a good Caipirinah.
It's pronounced kie-purr-reen-ya and it took me ages to get used to saying :))
Its made from Cacacha which is a very sweet Brazilian style of rum made from sugarcane juice.

  • 1 lime, quartered and muddled (crushed and squeezed)
  • 2 teaspoons of granulated or caster sugar
  • Crushed Ice
  • Cacacha
  • Place lime wedges and sugar into a glass and muddle - if you don't have a muddler, just crush and squeeze the lime well, mixing with the sugar.
  • Fill glass with crushed ice
  • Pour in Cacacha
  • Stir well

The best ever Caipirinah's I have ever tasted are at Las Iguanas. I've never found a barman who can make one taste as good as they do in that place.

Not for the faint hearted, but definitely delicious - have you tried a Caipirinah?
