A new cocktail today. This cocktail is extremely popular in South America. After all, it’s Brazil’s national cocktail. Maybe by now you know which cocktail I’m talking about. I had heard of this cocktail before, but never been to Brazil myself. So I was not able to taste the original cocktail there, but my try is 100% just as tasty. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Caipirinha.

What is the definition of Caipirinha

The meaning of Caipirinha is:

”The national cocktail of Brazil, that is made with Brazilian Rum Cachaca, lime, ice and cane sugar”.

Caipirinha

So this is a real Brazilian cocktail where it is a combination of fruit and the Brazilian rum Cachaca. Originally this drink was not used as a party cocktail, but as medicine. This was given to people who had the flu. The drink was popular in the countryside and is derived from the word Caipira. This means something like farmer in American. In short, someone from the countryside.

The Brazilian rum is made from fermented sugar cane juices. Actually, it shouldn’t be called rum, since Rum is made from the by-product of sugar cane. To make things easy, I just call it rum. After all, everyone knows what this is!

If you want to make Caipirinhas you have to make these one by one. It’s difficult to get the right amount of each ingredient in different glasses. It will take you a little more time, but that way you get the best cocktail. The best way to serve the cocktail is in low, wide glasses. Below I will further explain the recipe.

Caipirinha Recipe

This cocktail recipe is so easy. You need the follow ingredients: rum (cachaca), lime and cane sugar.

The first thing to do is to cut a lime in half. Then cut one of these halves into three wedges. Add the wedges to the shaker along with 15 grams of cane sugar. Now is the time to muddle through. This will ensure that the sugar and lime are mixed together. It is important to ensure that as much juice as possible comes out of the lime. Just don’t kill the peel. When everything is well combined, you can add the 45 ml rum. In the case of this cocktail, it’s the Cachaca. This is a Rum from Brazil.

After adding the rum you can add the ice cubes and start shake. Shake well a few times, but not too hard. After this you can add the mix to a glass. Normally you would strain it, but in this case you want all the lime wedges to be added to the glass. You can choose to add some more ice cubes to the glass if you want. All you have to do is enjoy the drink!
