Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 3 large
- 3 to 4 Tbsp
- granulated sugar
- 1 c
- cachaça or vodka
- crushed ice
1Cut 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
2With 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)
3Fill 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
