The Caipirinha Recipe
You will need:
*A “lowball”, “rocks” or “Old-Fashioned” glass
*A pestle (from a mortar and pestle — or something similar) for the muddling
1. Cut the ends off of the lime and discard.
2. Cut the lime in half lengthwise and cut out the white pith in the middle.
3. Cut the lime in half, and cut one half of the lime into four wedges and place in the glass. If your lime is small, you will need to add more lime to the glass.
4. Add one to three tablespoons of sugar. The amount of sugar depends on your personal taste as well as the size of the lime you are using.
5. Use the pestle to “muddle” the limes and sugar together. Basically, you want to crush the limes so that they mix in well with the sugar. Be careful not to break the skin of the lime. When you’ve gotten all of the juice out of the lime, you’re done.
6. Pack crushed ice in the glass all the way to the top.
7. Add cachaca all the way to the top of the glass. (It’s really only about 2 oz.)
8. Use a larger glass or bottom of a cocktail shaker and put it over the top of your drink. Pick up with two hands and shake very well for at least 15 seconds.
9. Garnish with a wedge or slice of lime.
****Drink…and enjoy the best caipirinha!********

It also says that you could substitute rum or vodka for the cachaca, but goes on to say that you will not get the same delicious results… This is the one that our bartender made for us. Sorry it’s sideways, just tilt your head like you’ve had one too many of these…. One day I’ll learn how to flip it.
And always in love with the o-ring!!
Yum Yum! Sea n Suds!!!

One of these days, I’ll become this super cool blogger where people will want me to give away stuff on my blog…. until that day, I’ll continue to enter other super cool bloggers giveaway contests!
Also, check out the rest of her blog. She’s done some amazing things that I’m super jealous of!
So this past weekend I went to DC. I had a great time! I went to visit my friend Sara who lives up there…she does the same thing as me and we met at a training session. She’s awesome. And made me truly realize how much fun I’m missing out on by living in Alabama.
This is her. (me on left…duh…Sara on right). She lives in the cutest (and most expensive) house.. and we had a great time going out.
So when you go to DC, you think about seeing all the sights…yeah we drove around because for the most part, we didn’t feel too well…..some other shots from the weekend.
So instead of Arlington Cemetery, or the Jefferson Memorial or even the White House… These are the pictures that I got. I really did have fun…and I really do miss her already. Maybe it’s time for a change.
