Celebrate with Brazil?’ National Drink!
We love lime cocktails – margaritas, mojitos and now the Caipirinha (kai-pur-EEN-yah). It’s refreshing like a mojito, just a tad sweeter and a nice alternative to one if don’t any mint on hand. You must have cachaca (ca SHA sa) on hand though. This is the Brazilian rum-like sugar cane liquor that makes the drink. Leblon?s is made from fresh-pressed Brazilian sugar cane and aged in Cognac casks.
