Caipirinha cocktail

The national cocktail of Brazil, the Caipirinha, is made with Cachaça, ice, limes and sugar – and best served on the beaches of Brazil! Fogo de Chão imports its private label cachaça directly from Brazil; the traditional Caipirinha remains one of the restaurant’s most popular beverages.

Fogo de Chão Caipirinha

Ingredients

  • 1 whole lime
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 oz. Cachaça

Instructions

  1. Cut lime in half and remove core (this is the bitter part of the lime; it is not sour).
  2. Slice lime thinly against the direction of the core.
  3. Place sliced lime in a rocks glass and add two tablespoons of sugar.
  4. Muddle lime and sugar together to extract the natural juice of the lime.
  5. Fill glass to the brim with ice, and add 2 oz. of cachaça.
  6. Cap glass with bar shaker and shake thoroughly to ensure the sugar dissolves evenly.
  7. Pour back into rocks glass and Serve at once. Enjoy!
  8. Note: Garnish the Caipirinha with a lime wheel or stick of sugar cane, as desired!
  9. Makes one drink

If you’d prefer to have someone make your drink, please be sure to visit a Fogo de Chão location near you! If you’re in the Portland area, we’ve got one conveniently right downtown but due to OLCC regulations, you can’t buy their imported private label cachaça to make your cocktails at home.

      Marlynn- this cocktail is so easy to make! We love the Fogo de Chão version too but wanted to make them while watching the opening ceremonies at home. Cheers to summer, Michele
