See the tab above for Recipes of Caipirinha.

The caipirinha is known as the national drink of Brazil, and is made from lime and cachaça. The name is derived from the Portuguese caipira (meaning 'hick' or 'country bumpkin') and the diminutive suffix -inha (meaning 'little'). It is sometimes also transliterated into English as the "car wreck".
