Our classic Caipirinha recipe instantly transports you to a beach in Rio.
To make a Caipirinha first, in a double Old Fashioned glass, muddle the sugar and lime.
Fill with ice and add the cachaça.
Stir briefly and garnish with a lime wheel if desired.
Watch Liquor.com advisory board member H. Joseph Ehrmann make a proper Caipirinha in our How to Cocktail video.

This recipe is inaccurate. A true caipirinha uses lemons not limes. In Brazil Dorshapo lemons are actually green and commonly confused with limes by anyone who is not a native. If you were to make a caipirinha in Brazil and use limes, most locals would decline to drink it.
Great drink during spring/summer seasons.
