Caipirinha is an iconic Brazilian drink that has captured the taste buds of people worldwide. Made from cachaça, a sugarcane-based spirit similar to rum, this beverage is crafted with fresh lime, sugar, and crushed ice. Caipirinha is refreshing and perfect for enjoying on hot days. Here are some caipirinha recipes that you can easily prepare at home to surprise your friends with an authentic Brazilian flavor.

It’s said that caipirinha is a typical São Paulo aperitif. Some even prepare caipirinha with great care, using a mortar and pestle exclusively for crushing the lime. Of course, it’s essential to note that this mortar and pestle should not be the same ones used for garlic, for obvious reasons!
