Known as the national cocktail of Brazil, the Caipirinha is a simple mix of muddled limes, sugar, ice, and cachaça, a rumlike Brazilian sugarcane spirit. Tossing the limes in sugar and grilling them first makes them extra juicy and easy to muddle, plus adds a toasty caramel flavor. Since this refreshing drink requires no shaking or straining, it’s the ideal cocktail to make outdoors by the grill or campfire.
What to buy: Cachaça, a sugarcane-derived spirit with a 500-year history, can be found at most well-stocked liquor stores.
