Cocktails, anyone?

RE: Cocktails, anyone?
Ok - my little freckle-faced Brazilian buddy sent me this today. and mentioned that if you would like it in Portuguese... (to impress your new friends) to let me know and she would translate.
This is "the best she has seen that accurately describes the caipirinha (kai-pee-reen-yah) that she has seen on a Brazilian web site."

In an old fashioned or (flat bottomed) on-the-rocks glass, add:
2 to 3 (depending on size) key limes cut into thin slices (approximately 1/8 inch thick).
Some people like to peel the limes before slicing but this eliminates the lime oil in the peel, which many believe to be essential for an 'authentic' taste.
You may want to remove any seeds before muddling ... unless you're fond of straining them through your teeth.

Add 2 to 3 heaping tablespoons of sugar to the top of the lime slices (Brazilians like it VERY sweet) Also - Brazilian sugar is much finer than American sugar, so experiment to your liking.
Muddle (mash) sugar and limes together well
Add 2 to 3 shots (ounces) cacha├ža / Club soda is optional and at your tastes discretion.
Stir well to thoroughly dissolve the sugar, add cracked ice, stir.
Serves 1

Most of us are so caught up in life that we forget to live it.
