Ingredients

  • 2 limes , chopped into wedges, plus extra lime wedges to serve (optional)
  • 6 tbsp golden caster sugar
  • 200ml cachaça
  • few handfuls crushed ice

Instructions

  1. Put the lime wedges in a large jug with the sugar, then use a muddler or the end of a rolling pin to break them down. Release as much juice from the wedges as possible, and let it mix with the sugar to create a syrup – you can also do this with a large pestle and mortar. Discard the lime peel.

  2. Divide the syrup and cachaça between four glasses, then top with the crushed ice. Serve garnished with lime wedges, if you like.
