Caipirinha

Caipirinha

Only distilled run made from sugar cane juice from Brazil can be called Cachaca. To make cachaça, sugarcane is washed and pressed through large metal rollers to extract the juice. Then, the juice is filtered and fermented. The sugarcane juice is fermented from one to three days then distilled, cooled and filtered again. The result is a white rum that has notes of raw sugar cane and the leavening agent that the individual distiller uses to make their own special blend. This drink is served the traditional way with little other than the Cachaca in the drink to enjoy the true flavor.
