Put about 2 tbsp of sugar and 1 lime cut into wedges into a glass, squish the shit out of it, add ice and vodka :P
That's kind of how they made them in JA...but I tried and failed..lol Aren't they refreshing though? I hear it is the national drink of Brazil.

I know, 2 ingredients is my kind of drink....and they would be soooo good blended. Yum!

I'm pretty sure caipirinha's are Brazilian. I drank a few every day for a week while in Brazil! The alcohol that it's made with is called Cachaca (kind of rum). Very tasty but time consuming to make!
