One of the really nice things about Brazil is the easy access to caipirinhas. Its is a very refreshing drink made of cachaça, lime, sugar and ice. Cachaça is a rum-like drink, but instead of distilling the molasses they distill the sugarcane juice when it is unrefined.
It is the perfect drink when the temperature climbs above 40°C, that is 104°F for you Celsius challenged people. Make a big batch, put it in a steel thermos, and try to find a spot where the wind breezes...
I've gotten instructions how to make them from a professional, so now I just have to practice making them
