Caipirinha is Brazil’ s national cocktail, made with cachaca,sugar, and lime. Cachaça, also known as caninha, or any one of a multitude of traditional names, is Brazil’s most common distilled alcoholic beverage.

Although both rum and cachaça are made from sugarcane-derived products, in cachaça the alcohol results from the fermentation of fresh sugarcane juice that is then distilled, while rum is usually made from refinery by-products such as molasses

According to historians, the caipirinha, as it is known nowadays, was invented by landowning farmers in the region of Piracicaba, interior of the state of Sao Paulo, during the 19th century, as a local drink for high standard events and parties, being a reflection of the strong sugarcane culture in the region.

Enjoy this wonderfully refreshing Brazilian cocktail made from Cachaca and fresh limes made by our expert mixologists.
