Well, It’s Time Again

For some caipirinhas, baby

This Água Luca cachaça ain’t cheap, and it’s…meh. Not any real flavor or character.

But with the limes

and merry muddling

it does the trick. But I frankly like some of the $15 or so brands better.

    What is differance between caipirinhas and mojitos?

  2. Mr. Bingley says:

    A caipirinha is a lime and sugar muddled together with cachaça on ice.

    A mojito is lime, mint, rum and has some soda water added, I believe.

    Rum and cachaça taste very different, even though both are distilled from sugar cane.

    Oh, I thought the Agua Luca website said it was rum. Probably poor reading comprehension on my part, just now finishing my coffee. :^) Thanks for the info Mr. B.

    Shouldn’t you be using icicles instead of ice cubes? Is there a warming trend there in the far North?

  5. Mr. Bingley says:

    It does say ‘rum’, doesn’t it, Bill? I did a little digging and I found this which makes as much sense as anything:

    “Rum is usually made from molasses, which is a byproduct of commercial sugar production, while cachaça is made with freshly-pressed sugarcane juice. Some small rum producers in the Caribbean islands also distill fermented cane juice in much the same way that cachaça is made in Brazil.”
