Caipirinha

  • SERVINGS: MAKES 1 DRINK
  1. 1 lime
  2. 4 ounces cachaça (1/2 cup)
  3. 1/4 cup superfine sugar, or more to taste
  4. 2 cups crushed ice
  1. Trim the ends off the lime and halve it lengthwise. Cut each half into 8 slices. In a cocktail shaker, using a wooden spoon or a pestle, muddle the lime with the 1/4 cup of sugar until juicy and the sugar dissolves.
