What a refreshing way to spend the day than with a Caipirinha, it is the National Drink of Brazil if you did not know.  Made with Cachaça, which is Brazil's version of Rum manufactured from sugar cane.  The Caipirinha is similar to a Mojito only made with Cachaça instead of rum.  You can try a twist and make it with turbinado sugar if you like.  It's refreshing, but watch out - it packs a punch!

2 oz. Leblon Cachaça

1/2 Lime
2 tsp Superfine sugar
Ice - preferably crushed

Cut the lime into four wedges. Muddle the lime and sugar in a shaker. Fill the shaker with ice and add Leblon Cachaça. Shake vigorously. Serve in a rocks glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.
