      Title: Caipirinha (classic brazilian cocktail)
 Categories: Beverage
      Yield: 4 Servings
           Several limes
           Crushed ice
  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.)
  Variations are:
    Caipirosca, made with vodka instead of rum.
    Cajurosca, made with cashew fruit and vodka.
    I forget the name, made with pineapple and vodka.
