Lost Sambista

A Brazil never seen.

A recipe for caipirinha..

Paper ~ Petal ~ Bash

In honor of our upcoming trip I thought we should get our taste buds excited for the food and beverages of Brazil.  [OMG I AM SO EXCITED!!!  Sorry…side note.]  Brazil’s national cocktail is the Caipirinha which is a combination of muddled lime, sugar, and Cachaça served over ice.  Cachaça is similar to rum except Cachaça is made with sugarcane while rum is made with molassas.

Caipirinha

Take a good size lime, cut it into 8 wedges, and place 4 wedges in a rocks glass

Add two teaspoons of sugar, mash the lime and sugar with a muddler for 15 seconds

Add crushed ice up to the rim of the glass

Add two ounces of Cachaça, stir thoroughly, and garnish with a lime wedge
