The Ultimate Caipirinha


  • 2 Ounces  Leblon cachaca
  • 2 Teaspoons  superfine sugar (or 1 ounce simple syrup)
  • 1/2  lime, cut into wedges

What better way to celebrate Brazil's four-day Carnival festivities than with the national Brazilian drink of choice? The caipirinha, made with Leblon cachaça, will make you believe you're sunbathing (and partying) in Rio. 


Muddle the lime and sugar in a shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and add the cachaça. Shake well and serve in a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime wheel.
