Brazil’s national drink is a great way to get any party started! The original recipe uses cachaça (a sugarcane-based alcohol), but white rum like Bacardi works as a great substitute.



  • 60ml cachaça or white rum
  • 15ml sugar syrup
  • 2 limes, one cut into wedges, one into wheels
  • Ice


  1. First, divide the lime wedges into two glasses and muddle them to extract the juices and oils.

  2. Add plenty of ice into the glasses, then pour the cachaça and sugar syrup over the top.

  3. Stir well to ensure the lime and rum mixes fully, garnish with lime wheels and serve.
