Okay, let’s talk pronounciation: it’s KAI-pur-een-YA. There you go, now you too can sound worldy like us. Cachaça is another weird one – it’s pronounced ka-SHA-sa. You could substitute regular rum for cachaça, but we don’t recommend it; this drink is inorexably linked to the grassy, fruity, musty flavors of real cachaça.
Muddle the limes and sugar in a short glass. Top with ice and cachaça, and stir before serving.
