This is Brazil’s national drink made from a combination of lime,  sugar and cachaca served on ice. If you are wondering what exactly cachaca is? It is Brazilian Rum which is a distilled spirit made from sugarcane juice. A popular brand of cachaca is Ypioca although according to Veja Magazine, the below mentioned brands are some of the best in the world:

  • White: Volupia; Serra Limpa; Coqueiro; Santo Grau ;Serra Preta
  • Aged: Anisio Santiago; Canarinha; Vale Verde; Nega Fulo; Armazem Vieira

• Lime
• Normal granulated sugar
• Cachaca (Brazilian rum)
• Ice




  1. Cut your Limes into halves and quarters.
  2. Remove the white bits from the center (it makes it bitter).
  3. Into a pestle add 3 tea spoons of sugar.
  4. Add 4 quarters of the lime.
  5. with a mortar, crush the limes and sugar, until all the juice has come out of the limes.
  6. Add a double shot of Rum ( I just count 1, 1000, 2, 1000, 3, 1000, 4).
  7. Mix it well, make sure to dissolve all the sugar.
  8. Pour the drink into a glass, add 3 or four cubes of Ice.
  9. taste it, if too strong you might need a bit of water if not sweet enough add more sugar.

Ching ching, and happy cocktail drinking…
