Enjoy a refreshing caipirinha at a summer barbecue or party. This classic cocktail is made with cachaça, lime and sugar. Serve with fresh wedges of lime
- STEP 1
Put the lime wedges in a large jug with the sugar, then use a muddler or the end of a rolling pin to break them down. Release as much juice from the wedges as possible, and let it mix with the sugar to create a syrup – you can also do this with a large pestle and mortar. Discard the lime peel.
- STEP 2
Divide the syrup and cachaça between four glasses, then top with the crushed ice. Serve garnished with lime wedges, if you like.
