Caipirinha (the real Brazilian Way)

Drink Type: Cocktail



Cut the lime lengthways(not across the middle). Then cut out the central stem using two 45 degree incisions on each side of the stem. Now deeply cut but not all the way through twice width ways. Place the two identically dissected lime halves into your tumbler/ old fashioned glass. Add the sugar syrup. Squash the lime and sugar together with a muddler. Fill the glass with crushed ice and top with cacahaca. Stir throughly and drink with short straws (and some friends!!)
