Original Recipe: Sparkling Caipirinha

Original Recipe: Sparkling Caipirinha

As discussed here, I promised my recipe for the Sparkling Caipirinha, a lighter way to sip cachaça, a Brazilian sugar cane rum. This cocktail offers the spirit of the Caipirinha but is easier to sip; more like a Mojito than a Martini.

The Sparkling Caipirinha
1/2 a lime, cut into four pieces
1 teaspoon sugar
2 oz. cachaça

In a rocks glass muddle the lime with the sugar (use only 3 pieces of the lime if you prefer). Add the cachaça and fill with ice. Top up with 7-Up.
