Caipirinha - Andy's Version

Andy Pearson

Andy says...

The national drink of Brazil given the Andy Pearson treatment

This version of the drink brings together the European / US way of making a Caipirinha, and the way I've enjoyed it in its native Brazil.  It is a longer, stronger drink in Brazil than we are used to, so I have created a version that tastes like it was made in Brazil, but its appearance is that of the more well known version in order to not scare people off.

How to make a Caipirinha - Andy's Version cocktail at home


  • 65ml Cachaca
  • 1.5 Fresh Limes
  • 3 Teaspoons of Caster Sugar
  • No garnish


  • Cut the lime into chunks and place in a shaker
  • Add the sugar
  • Crush with a muddler
  • Add the spirit and ice and roll to combine the ingredients (don't shake it, simply roll the ingredients back and forth)
  • Pour the whole lot, ice and all, into a rocks glass
  • Top with a crushed ice crown

Andy's Top Tip - I advise chilling your Cachaca and using it straight from the fridge or freezer

If you wish to make a Caipiroska Cocktail simply swap the cachaca for vodka
