the secret behind the caipirinha

Just imagine the following: you are sunbathing on the Spanish beach, the sun is shining on your tanned brown skin, you are listening to Enrique Iglesias' latin rhythms and looking at the beautiful blue sea. Hello, picture perfect.. But wait! Something is missing... a delicious refreshing Caipirinha! Since you are on a holiday and the cocktail bar is literarily just around the corner (lucky you), you just head to the bar and order. But what about us people sitting at home? Well no worries, with this recipe you will be enjoying your home-made Caipirinha in no time. Cheers!

This is what you will need in order to make the best-Caipirinha-ever!

  • Half a lime: sliced in 4 parts
  • 2 big tablespoons cane sugar
  • A muddler (to squeeze out the juice)
  • 1 glas of crushed ice
