- 1 lime cut into 4 wedges
- 1 tablespoon sugar brown, refined or crystalized
- ice cubes
- 3 tablespoons cachaça
- Place lime and sugar into a small glass. Mash the two ingredients together using a pastle, muddler or a wooden spoon. Fill the glass with ice and add the cachaça.
A wide variety of fresh fruits can be used in place of lime. In the absence of cachaça, vodka can be used, making a caipiroska.
