Caipirinha with mangoThe basic recipe to this famous Brazilian cocktail - Caipirinha - is limited solely to lime, sugar and "cachaça," a spirit made from the sugar cane juice, also known as Brazilian rum.
However, some people add fruits like mango, passion fruit, grape and strawberry and I think it is a nice twist to this popular drink.
To make the traditional caipirinha:
1 shot cachaça (Brazilian rum but vodka will do)
1 tablespoon sugar
1) Quarter the limes crosswise and divide pieces between two glasses.
2) Add sugar to each glass, muddle the lime slices with a wooden spoon until sugar is dissolved into the lime juice.
3) Fill each glass with ice and add 1 shot cachaça to each, stirring well.
Add any fruits you like like mango slices, strawberry, grapes, etc. But please note, this is optional.
