By Chef Paulo Machado – in reference to Handmade Cachaça
The cachaça, delicious, vibrant, yellow-green identity. This national drink that is celebrated today, is born of a true cultural tradition.
September 13th is Brazilian National Cachaça Day. How about a delicious caipirinha on this Sunday?
You will need:
1 Tahiti lemon or cloves lemon
1 dose of cachaça – better a Handmade Cachaça
2 tablespoons of crystal sugar
some ice rocks
On a cutting board cut the ends of the lemon and then cut it in half.
Remove the white part and cut again, forming 4 parts.
Then in a tall glass arrange the sugar and the lemon and with a wooden whisk mash the lemon to form a thick juice when mixing with the sugar.
Then cover with ice cubes and finish with a dose of cachaça.
Wick with a high spoon or ecological straw and the caipirinha is ready.
Tip: choose a white handmade cachaça to make your caipirinha.
