Title: Caipirinha (classic brazilian cocktail)
Yield: 4 Servings
You will need a jug, because you are going to make a jugful. Chop several limes roughly, into
eighths, say. Crush the lime pieces and throw them along with their
juice into the jug. Add crushed ice, white suger and plenty of rum.
Stir well and serve immediately, lime pieces and all.
Important note: The rum should be Brazilian rum ("Pinga" or
"Cachac,a", ie. cedilla on the second c, some brands are Velho
Barreiro, Pitu', Casa Grande, Tatuzinho) and the limes should be
limes. Cachac,a has a very different taste from, say, Bacardi,
apparently because it is only refined once so contains esters and
other compounds that are removed by more distillation (that's a story
I've been told, anyway.)
Caipirosca, made with vodka instead of rum.
Cajurosca, made with cashew fruit and vodka.
I forget the name, made with pineapple and vodka.
