Wash the lime gently under water and dry. Cut the limes, muddle gently in a non-breakable glass to crush the fruit but not release too much of the oils from the skin. Add ice and shake vigorously. Pour in serving glass and fill with lemon-lime soda. Garnish with lime slice and serve.
Caipirinha is pronounced 'KIE-PUR-REEN-YAH'
The traditional Caipirinha is a Brazilian cocktail made with Cachaca, sugar, and crushed limes, served over ice. It is always muddled (crushed with a masher or the blunt end of a wooden spoon). Make sure to muddle in a shaker or a sturdy, non-breakable glass. You can also try replacing lime with about 1/2 cup of fresh tangerine, star fruit, passion fruit, peach, pear, pineapple, plum, orange, mango, grape, guava, figs, etc.
