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.

  • 60 mL Cachaça Germana Cachaça
  • Lime
  • 2 tsp Brown Sugar


  • Cut a lime into eighths and place in Boston glass
  • Add the sugar
  • Muddle
  • Shake & pour into an old fashioned glass


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.
