Made with cachaça, sugar and lime, the caipirinha is Brazil's national cocktail. Cachaça is made from sugarcane just like rum, so if you can’t find the Brazilian spirit at your local liquor store, sub in regular rum.
This Martha Stewart recipe adds in passion fruit juice for an even fresher tropical taste.
