2 fluid ounces
cachaca (Brazilian rum)
1 1/2 cups
WAY TOO MUCH lime for the amount of drink. I used 1/2 a regular lime and even that was almost too much. I had to split the recipe and then add more sugar and Cachaça to make this palatable. Either use a small (key) lime or use at least 1 tbsp of sugar...otherwise it's just not the right mix.
Tastes nice and authentic. Very refreshing and simple. This is not a drink for everyone - particularly those who are used to drinking those over-sweet cocktails made with flavoured spirits that you find in most bars. Very nice recipe for a classic cocktail. I garnished mine with a curled lime peel and mint.
