Caipirinha is arguably Brazil’s national drink, *when* they bother to mix anything into their cachaça at all. Caipirinha, I think, is a drink created to cope with Brazil’s hot climate. It is refreshing and, to anyone who loves lemony drinks, pure bliss on a hot day. Be careful when standing up afterwards though. It is *not* to be drunk on an empty stomach.

2 tsp granulated sugar (to taste. I often use sweetener, as I can’t tolerate sugar)
8 lime wedges
2 1/2 oz cachaça (Brazilian cane spirit)
Crush the sugar into the lime wedges in a whisky glass. Fill the glass with ice cubes. Pour the cachaça into the glass. Stir well. Serve.
