The Caipirinha cocktail is the most popular Cachaca rum drink Made with Cachaca Rum, lime, sugar, very refreshing. The Caipirinha cocktail is a famous cocktail in Brazil and many other areas in South America. This is more of a sipping drink in hot weather, as the crushed ice melts it creates more drinkable cocktail.

The classic fruit to make a Caipirinha is lime, however lemon, Orange, Grapefruit can be used. The basic concept is to mix the cachaca rum with just fruit, sugar and crushed ice. The first couple of sips are strong, but as the ice melts into the cocktail the drink becomes more and more mild. Because you are going to muddle the fruit in the Caipirinha you don't want to use any fruit that will break off into small chunks.
