Brazil also has a national drink: CAIPIRINHA - It is made with lime, sugar, crushed ice, and cachaça. Just like rum, cachaça is made from sugar cane, but it has a stronger flavor and aroma. It is because its distillation process retains more impurities. Caipirinha is perfect to accompany feijoada – a bean stew that is considered Brazil’s national dish, churrasco – Brazilian barbeque- as well as being served on so many other occasions,... There are many variations of this drink as follows:
Cranberry Coconut Lime Rickey Mocktail. Place all ingredients from coconut water through soda water in a high ball glass and stir to combine. Squeeze in a fresh lime wedge & add ice. To make a cocktail add 1 ounce of gin.

A gin and jam: pretty self-explanatory, but with so many variations we couldn’t resist testing out some new recipes that are (most importantly) easy to assemble for a small gathering or bigger party. These three recipes are foolproof, with Perrier, gin and jam as the only ingredients you need for delicious cocktails.
Caipirinha – brazilian drink - Peel the lemon, cut into four pieces, take the lumps and the middle white fillet of lemon. Squeeze directly into the glass (or Shaker) with the help of a pastle, along with the sugar. Add the ice and cachaça or pinga (liquor distilled from sugar cane), you can use “vodka” to. Shake well and pour into a glass garnished with a slice of lemon and “strawberry, passion fruit, kiwi, berries, and fruit mixture to taste”. You can serve the caipirinha sieved or not.
