White Cherry, Lime, & Watermelon Sangria cups watermelon balls 2 cups bing cherries 3 limes 1 lemon 1 750 ml bottle white wine cup white rum 4 cups lemon-lime soda)

The Caipirinha...My favorite cocktail.  This is how I make it:  1 whole lime cut into eight pieces  Muddle lime with 1 Tbsp. sugar and 1 Tbsp. brown sugar.  Top highball glass with crushed ice.  Pour Leblon Cachaca Rum up close to the rim.  Shake and then enjoy...Ahhhh!  I also add blueberries or strawberries to it for a summery boost.  Fresh ginger in it for a Fall boost.

Brazil also has a national drink: CAIPIRINHA - It is made with lime, sugar, crushed ice, and cachaça. Just like rum, cachaça is made from sugar cane, but it has a stronger flavor and aroma. It is because its distillation process retains more impurities. Caipirinha is perfect to accompany feijoada – a bean stew that is considered Brazil’s national dish,  churrasco – Brazilian barbeque- as well as being served on so many other occasions,... There are many variations of this drink as follows:
