Hi, please, try make a Caipirinha, it's a traditional drink in Brazil. follow the recipe: Lemon Tahiti; Sugar; white ron or cachaça; ice For each caipirinha, calculate approximately ½ lemon, 50-65ml of rum, 1 1/2 tablespoons (soup) of sugar and about 5 ice cubes. The exact extent will depend on your taste (more or less sweet, weaker or stronger). smash the lemon, add sugar, ice, complete with ron or cachaça, shake and serve. Good luck!
