Caipijito

This comes from trying to show friends the awesomeness of caipirinhas before realizing I have no idea how on earth to make one.
My bastardized version came out quite delicious (and liable to get me killed by any real brazilians).

Instructions

  1. 1Cut 1 lime into ~8 wedges, put into a thin/tall glass (small french presses are awesome for this). Add the brown sugar and cachaca and muddle.
  2. 2Pour into 4 glasses (in my case, red wine glasses) over a couple ice cubes.
  3. 3Top off each glass with seltzer water & mix.
  4. 4Serve to unsuspecting guests as caipirinhas. Bask in their praise.
