Caipirinha – The National Drink of Brazil!

Caipirinhas (cai·pi·ri·nha) are the national drink of Brazil, and you can think of them as a mojito without the mint, and instead of rum they use cachaça (kah·SHAH·sah). Great, what's cachaça? Well it's a lot like rum, except rum is made from molassas (a by-product of refining sugarcane juice) whereas cachaça is made directly from the sugar cane juice.  You can use your Perfect Pitcher Mojito Kit to make a Perfect Pitcher of Caipirinhas, and here's how!

  1. 2 limes
  2. Cachaça (in a pinch, substitute rum)
  3. Sugar
  4. Ice
  5. 1 liter Club Soda
  1. Quarter and slice the limes thin and put them into the pitcher
  2. Sugar to the Sugar Line on the measure cup and into the pitcher.
  3. Muddle until the limes and sugar combine
  4. Add cachaça (or rum) to the rum line on the measure cup and put into pitcher
  5. Add a full measure cup of ice to the pitcher
  6. Add the club soda to the pitcher and stir
  1. Pour into a tumbler or tall glass with ice. Make sure you get some lime in there. You can garnish with a stalk of sugar cane... and a splash of coconut water never hurt anyone (if you are so inclined).
