How to make a Caipirinha

Made with Brazil’s most popular spirit, Cachaça; this one isn’t for the faint hearted. The Brazilian spirit is made from fermented sugarcane juice and is also known as Brazilian Rum. The Caipirinha is Brazil's national drink.

There are many different methods and recipes for most cocktails; likewise for the the Caipirinha. Some recipes call for brown sugar, palm sugar or other sugar substitutes - it comes down to personal preference. You can also choose to stir or shake, personally I shake my Caipirinhas.
