Do you have World Cup fever? It seems like just overnight the whole world untied to embrace the beloved game of 'footie'. The opening match is today. And I've got the perfect drink to sip while cheering on your favourite team. The caipirinha - Brazil's national cocktail - is a refreshing (and potent) blend of fresh lime, cane sugar and cachaca (a Brazilian sugarcane-based spirit). Here's how to make one: Wash and dry one lime. Cut into wedges. Place in the bottom of an old-fashioned glass with 2 to 3 tsp sugar (if you've got raw sugar, use it here. If not, white sugar works just fine) and muddle with the end of a wooden spoon, or use a fancy bartending muddler if you've got one. Add 2 oz cachaca (which is available in select spirit stores across Canada), white rum or vodka and stir. Add crushed ice to fill the glass and give it one more stir. Then turn on the telly and tuck into the games. And if you happen to not be interested in soccer at all, no worries. This drink is still great! And best enjoyed with good company.
