We love the Brazilian cocktail, the Caipirina.

Some substitute rum but we use cachaca, which is easy to find.

For 2 drinks, use two tall glasses.
Cut 2 limes into quarters , placing 3 quarters in each glass.
Sprinkle a tablespoon of fine sugar on top and muddle.
Add 2 tablespoons plus of cachaca (or white rum) to each glass and fill with ice.
Stir, garnish with fresh lime wedges or one quarter slice.

We like this drink paired with hot and spicy foods such as Chili, pork barbque and robust stews.
