Learn How to Make a Delicious Brazilian Caipirinha at Home

Have you ever tried a caipirinha before? This classic Brazilian cocktail combines citrus flavors with the delicious taste of cachaça, a liquor made from the fermentation of sugar cane juice.

Learning to make this cocktail at home isn’t difficult at all, as long as you have the right ingredients. Let’s learn how to make Brazil’s favorite alcoholic drink!


  • 4 ounces cachaça
  • 4 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • Ice


  1. Start off by putting the white sugar and the lime that you have cut into wedges into a large old fashioned glass, which provides you with room to mix together these ingredients.
  2. Muddle the lime wedges into the sugar, being sure to release all of that delicious lime juice that is contained inside.
  3. After you’ve done this, go ahead and add a few ice cubes, depending on your preference. Add enough to be sure that the drink is served cold, though.
  4. Finally, pour in the cachaça, and stir together gently. Garnish with a lime slice, if you’d like.

Your caipirinha is now ready to be served. Enjoy!
