Some people don’t believe in happy accidents. But an accidental discovery in the sugarcane plantations of Brazil was exactly what led to the creation of The Caipirinha. Bold and full of untamed flavour, this cachaça drink is combined with sugar and lime
4 or 5 lime wedges
2 tsp of sugar or turbinado sugar
2 oz Cachaça
Muddle the sugar and lime wedges together in an old-fashioned glass until the sugar is dissolved and the lime juice is released. Fill the glass with ice and pour in the Cachaça. Stir briefly.
