Beleza Pura Caipirinha is an authentic version of Brazil ’s national drink and bar none, the finest Brazilian ‘ready-to-drink’ cocktail available.

What’s a caipirinha? ‘KIE-PUR-REEN-YAH’ The traditional Caipirinha is a Brazilian cocktail made with , sugar, and crushed limes, served over ice. It is always muddled (crushed with a masher or the blunt end of a wooden spoon). Make sure to muddle in a shaker or a sturdy, non-breakable glass.

THE BELEZA CAIPIRINHA

(BEH-LAY-ZUH KIE-PUR-REEN-YAH)
1 lime (Tahiti type preferred), sliced into 8 pieces
2 tsp sugar or 2 oz Simple syrup
2 oz Beleza Pura Super Premium Cachaça
1/2 cup of crushed ice

Wash the lime gently under water and dry. Cut the limes, add sugar, muddle gently in a non-breakable glass to crush the fruit but not release too much of the oils from the skin. Add ice and Beleza Pura Super Premium Cachaça, and shake, shake, shake. Serve in a large rocks glass. Make two, and head for the closest beach with someone special.
