Caipirinha is a cocktail known all over the world, here is the recipe with Malandra Cachaça

In any season Caipirinha is a great cocktail, but specially during summer, this cocktail is refreshing and very tasty.

The name caipirinha means "little countryside girl" because of where it was first created: in the countryside of Brazil. However the original place of the cocktail is unknown. Some say it comes from the São Paulo state, other from Rio de Janeiro countryside.
