The celebrated Brazilian cocktail. The "real thing", that is, Caipirinha with cachaca is the best, in my humble opinion. But there are variations like Caipiroska (with vodka), Caipirissima (with rum), Caipisake (with sake). Instead of lime, you can make Caipirinha with kiwi, strawberry, passion fruit, tangerine and with a combination of fruits. Nowadays, there are various ways of having a Caipirinha. My personal choice is still the original: with lime and cachaca. Here it goes:

Caipirinha

Ingredients:

1 dose cachaca (1/4 to 1/3 of glass)
1 lime
3 tbsp. sugar
ice (small and medium sized chips)

Directions:

Cut 1/2 the lime into slices and 1/2 into wedges. Put the slices and 2 tbsp. sugar in a short glass and mash them. Squeeze the juice from some of the wedges in. Add chipped ice till glass 3/4 full.  Add a  couple of the squeezed lime wedges and tbsp. sugar and pour the of cachaca over them. Caipirinha is meant to be stirred as you drink, it should be sweet yet tart so stir the sugar up from the bottom often.

Note: Cachaca is an liquor made from sugar cane.
