When in Rio ..... try a caipirinha

The caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail and is made with cachaça (sugar cane rum), sugar and lime. The keyword here is lots: lots of lime, lots of sugar, lots of rum! And, as they say, when in Rome, or in this case Rio, do as the Cariocas do.

This blog is dedicated to the bartender at our hotel’s pool who had an especially heavy hand with the cachaça…. 

It’s also dedicated to my husband who will be visiting the liquor store THIS weekend to find the ingredients for a home-made version!
