I thought it would be helpful to create a resource page that you can always come to for all of your caipirinha needs. We’ll add to it as we learn more, but you’ll notice that in the future this page will be referenced quite often.We recommend bookmarking it for your reference and convenience. Enjoy!
Cool sites we like
It turns out that to keep a site going requires a lot of research online than I originally thought. I am constantly scouring the web for content, which I consider worth sharing or simply add to what I already know. Below you will find a list of other websites, which have been very helpful to me and which I always end up going back to once in a while. I really hope these sites can be as helpful to you as they have been to me in the last few months.
Books about Brazil
For those of you who wish to take some time off the Internet and prefer to sit back and enjoy a good book, then here are a few titles that we definitely recommend. These recommendations are a good mix of recipe book, cultural lesson and humorous anecdotes.
Fun YouTube Channels about Brazil
If you are serious about coming to Brazil or learning more about Brazilian culture, then it is always good to know what is already out there. I usually find myself spending hours browsing over YouTube channel after YouTube channel and watching videos made by all kinds of people who are from or have relocated to Brazil for the most various reasons.
Below you will find a list of YouTube channels, which I find especially helpful. I keep coming back to them every time I want to learn more about Brazilian food, Caipirinha, Cachaça culture or Brazil in general . Not all of these channels are about Caipirinha only, but they are all certainly very helpful.
Original Caipirinha Recipe
Although you can find a post especially dedicated to the original caipirinha recipe here on the site, it has been posted here on this page again, for quick read and run visitors. We hope you enjoy.
- 75ml Cachaça
- 3/4 green lemon
- 3 tablespoons white sugar
- ice (crushed)
Carefully cut the lemon in wedges.
Place the lemon and the sugar inside a short thick glass and gently grind using a pestle.
Add ice and cachaça to the mix and stir homogeneously.
Fill up the glass with some more ice and enjoy!
