1 lime, quartered

1-2 tablespoons sugar

2 ounces of cachaca (the fiery Brazilian brandy)

Mash the lime quarters with the sugar in a cocktail glass with a wooden pestle.

Add cachaca generously.

Fill the glass with ice cubes and stir well.

For best results, add a pitade of Samba and a nice Morena!
