What ingredients should I use for the Caipirinha?
The original recipe from Brazil is mixed with sugarcane liquor Cachaça. Almost all brands are suitable for this, depending on taste and preference: Pitú, Canario, Cachaca 51 or Nega Fulo. Furthermore, white (fine) sugar cane is preferred. This dissolves faster than the brown (coarse) sugar cane used in Germany and is also more flavorful.
The most well-known alcohol-free variant of the Caiprinha is the Ipanema. Here, Cachaça is replaced by Ginger Ale and passion fruit juice or apple juice.

What's the difference between Caipirinha and Mojito?
A Mojito and a Caipirinha are both made with limes and raw sugar. The Caipirinha is widely popular in Brazil and is therefore made with the Brazilian spirit Cachaça. In a Mojito, rum is used as the spirit. Additionally, mint is added to the Mojito, giving the drink its distinct flavor. Flavor-wise, the Mojito is much more refreshing, due to both the mint and the soda used.
- Mojito Fancy drinksIngredients: 1 Lime, 6 pc(s). Mint Leaves, 6 cl Rum (white), Havana Club, 2 BS Sugar (white), 1 splash Soda
The history of the Caipirinha
The Caipirinha is a traditional Brazilian cocktail that originated in the rural regions of the country. The exact origins of the cocktail are unknown, but it is believed to have emerged in the late 1800s or early 1900s. It takes its name from the Brazilian spirit Cachaça, which is used as the base and means "caipira".
Over the years, the Caipirinha has gained popularity in other parts of Brazil and even globally, and is often seen as a symbol of Brazilian culture and lifestyle. Today, it is one of the most well-known cocktails worldwide and is often served in bars and restaurants.
