Another post on food…in Brazil…I meant food and beverages..
In Brazil, I learned about a new drink called Caipirinha. It is alcoholic but made from sugar cane! Here’s the description:
Caipirinha (Portuguese pronunciation: [kajpiˈɾĩɲɐ]) is Brazil‘s national cocktail, made with cachaça (pronounced: [kaˈʃasɐ]) (sugar cane rum), sugar and lime. Cachaça is Brazil’s most common distilled alcoholic beverage (also known as Pinga orCaninha). Both rum and cachaça are made from sugar cane-derived products. Specifically with cachaça, the alcohol results from the fermentation of sugar cane juice that is afterwards distilled.
Here’s a picture that I took, a glass of Caipirinha that I ordered. How did it taste? Pretty sweet…therefore I like it!
How to make Caipirinha? Although I am not interested to make it at home, I think some of my readers may be interested. Here I found this video on You-Tube:
