Not for the faint=hearted. After 3 drinks, even though your legs may be wobbly, you believe you can have a meaningful conversation on anything from the latest movie to quantum physics (just kidding).

Drink this one at home or take a designated driver along with you.

Prep:

10 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

3 large
limes
3 to 4 Tbsp
granulated sugar
1 c
cachaça or vodka
crushed ice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cut limes in half cross-wise

Squeeze out juice from the lime halves and set aside.

Leave a little juice in lime halves so they are not completely dry.

Cut the limes with skin on into 1-1/2 inch cubes
2
With a large mortar and pestle, crush the lime cubes with the sugar until you have a thick sweet syrup.

Note: If you don't have a mortar and pestle, you can use a heavy bowl and a wooden spoon (it just takes a little more work)
3
Fill four short glasses with ice

Pour the syrupy mixture over the ice.

Add the cachaça or vodka and stir

Divide the reserved lime juice between the 4 glasses

Stir just to blend

Serve with a smile ☺
