Description

Caipirinha creates Latin vibes all around the globe, it's one of the most popular summer cocktails worldwide. It consists of Cachaça, limes, cane sugar and a bunch of crushed ice. A sour mixture with a lot of alcohol and a crunching finish. Entertainment is always provided, most people love to stir and play around with the straws. The rattling of the ice provides a pleasant atmosphere.

In Brazil they prepare Caipirinha with white cane sugar. Brown cane sugar passes less cleaning steps during production and contains therefore additional flavorings. Caipirinha tastes at least as good with brown cane sugar then with white one. More important is the grain size, the bigger the crunchier, many people like that.

You should use untreated limes. Otherwise, wash treated limes under hot water and rob them dry. That helps a lot to reduce the amount of the poisonous pesticides that are possibly deposited on top of the lime peel.

A great choice in summer, with hot temperatures Caipirinha always becomes a big hit, independent of your guests gender, taste and age. Caipirinha always goes down well with everybody.

Different Caipirinha decorations

Caipirinhas look really great.

Caipirinha you serve in Gibraltar glasses or alternatively in tumbler glasses. You definitively have to add straws, black and buckling resistant ones are the best choice. Further decorations are unusual.

La Lima se machaca con el azúcar, blanca, ya que los granos de azúcar rompen una pequeñas vesículas de la piel de la Lima dando un aroma más intenso y rebaja la acidez del zumo de Lima, ayudando a disolver el azúcar ademàs.
Luego se echa hielo muy picadito y se deja reposar unos minutos. El zumo irá subiendo y mezclándose con el hielo. Por último un tapón de la botella de Cachaça 51 ... es suficiente para una deliciosa Caipirinha y ... poder repetir alguna más.
Bom proveito !!

Den Rohrzucker füge ich schon vor dem Mörsern hinzu, so werden noch mehr Geschmacksstoffe von der Limettenschale herausgelöst, schmeckt noch erfrischender. Ein Caipirinha ist genau das richtige bei diesem warmen Temperaturen, Prost!
