  • 50ml Cachaça
  • 1 lime
  • 3 teaspoons caster sugar
  • Crushed ice


1 Cut off the tips of the top and tail off your lime and cut into eight chunks.

2 Place in a thick, strong glass tumbler and add three teaspoons of sugar.

3 Using a muddler or round ended rolling pin, crush the sugar and lime together. As you push the muddler into the lime, twist it so that the abrasive texture of the sugar cuts into the skin of to release the oil.

4 When all the lime pieces are completely crushed and all the juice has been extracted, add a little crushed ice (so that the glass is half filled) and then add 50ml of cachaça.

5 Take a bar spoon and fold the ice, lime, sugar and cachaça into each other and add more crushed ice so that it sits proud above the drink.
