HOW TO MAKE THE PERFECT CAIPIRINHA:
Let's start with the basics: what is a Caipirinha, and how is it made? The national cocktail of Brazil, the Caipirinha is a combination of muddled lime, sugar, and Cachaca served on the rocks in a rocks glass. Take a good size lime, cut it into 8 wedges, and place 4 wedges in a rocks glass. Add two teaspoons of sugar, mash the lime and sugar with a muddler for 15 seconds, and add crushed ice up to the rim of the glass. Add two ounces of Cachaca, stir thoroughly, and garnish with a lime wedge.

I first stumbled on this rum during the 2014 world cup in Brazil. I've hunted locally for it ever since but I believe it's always in limited release (their white rum is more accessible).
This rum is smooth, best enjoyed neat (and I think in the summer).
