National drink of Brazil.  Cachaca the new vodka – or old gin.   The cosmo of the 2000s.  Easy drink to get your samba on.  Blah blah blah.  I have no idea.  I just know it’s tasty, and more importantly, incredibly easy to make.  Just three easy ingredients.  No syrups, no exotic liqueurs, no bitters, no multiple page recipe lists.  Heck, you don’t even need a cocktail shaker for this one.   Perfect for lazy summer days.


2 oz. cachaca (I used Sagatiba Velha)
2-3 barspoons sugar
1/2 lime, quartered

Muddle sugar and lime in an old fashioned glass.  Add ice, then pour cachaca over ice.  Stir and top with additional ice.
