About the Recipe
The Caipirinha has deep roots in Brazil, where it is believed to have originated in the early 20th century. It was created as a tribute to the country's signature spirit, cachaça, which is made from sugarcane. Originally a humble drink among farmers, the Caipirinha's popularity soared over the years, becoming Brazil's national cocktail and winning hearts worldwide with its refreshing allure and tropical charm.
