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.

  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
  4. Serve with a smile ☺
