About this recipe:A traditional Brazilian caipirinha is made with limes. This version uses lemons and key limes for a twist on this classic Brazilian drink. If you can't find cachaça (sugar cane liqueur) at your local off-licence, it is available online, or ask them to order it for you - it's well worth it!
2 lemons, quartered and seeded
2 tablespoons caster sugar
3 cubes ice
1 key lime, juiced
250ml cachaça (preferably aged)

Place the limes in a short glass. Add sugar and muddle well with a pestle to extract the juice from the limes; add ice.
Add key lime juice and cachaça and stir; chill and serve.
Key limes are difficult to find in the UK and Ireland. You can order key lime juice online or simply use ordinary limes.
