Original Lime Caipirinha
1 1/2 lime, quartered
2 teaspoon white sugar
2 1/2 ounces cachaca (Brazilian Rum)
1 cup ice cubes
Cut the lime in half lengthwise and cut out the white pith in the middle and place in a cocktail shaker.
Add one to three tablespoons of sugar (depends on your personal taste)
Use the pestle to "muddle" the limes and sugar together, so you can crush the limes and mix them well with the sugar.
Add crushed ice.
Shake it very well
Serve it in a cocktail glass and garnish it with a wedge or slice of lime.
