Great Drink! A bit sweet, but great nonetheless. Made for Tastebud Tickling Travellers,ZWT4
Not tart at all - this is deliciously sweet like the best limeade you've ever had! If you have the opportunity to try one of these...go for it! Citrusy and refreshing, and *much sweeter* than what we had everywhere in Brazil, from cheapos on the beach to fine dining restaurants. Rita's Caipirinha Original or With Fruit is more similar to what we had in Rio, but this version is much easier to drink. I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the key limes here and regular limes in the other version (but they are cuter). I never met a Caipirinha I didn't like - except the next day...for that reason I personally disagree with the "quanto pior...melhor a" adage...
This has been a favorite of mine for several years now. I first had it at a local Brazilian restaurant and it was the best thing I had all night. I have a resident bottle of Cachaca in the fridge. I find that fixing a drink at a time is safest for me!!!! Glad you posted for anyone not familiar with this drink.
DANGEROUS! I love this drink! I found some Cachaca while in TN last weekend and popped it open to finish out this last weekend in S.A. with the ZWT4. I have now found my new favorite drink! Definitely packed with a punch. Tart and wonderful! Thanks for this traditional recipe.
I can't believe I found a bottle of cachaca and now that I've tried it, I'm totally hooked. Thanks for sharing!
I had a girl that used to help me out round the house who was from Brazil, and she brought be back a bottle of Cachaca from one of her trips back home. I was glad to finally put it to use. This drink is a delicious way to smooth out Cachaca's rough edges. Tart and sweet and refreshing. Loved it.
