Like rum, cachaça is distilled from sugar cane, but unlike Ron de Venezuela it is not made of molasses, but from fermented sugar cane juice. It’s considered an aguardiente.
Since today is Brazil´s greatest holiday ever, I decided to toast to the Brazilian Carnival with a refreshing Rumpirinha, made of rum instead of cachaça. In other words: the Ron de Venezuela version of the classic Caipirinha.
There is nothing more refreshing than this drink! Salud!
2 oz. of Ron de Venezuela Santa Teresa Claro
½ lime quartered
2 Tsp of brown sugar
Chill a rock glass with cracked ice. In a mixing glass, muddle the lemon wedges with the sugar to extract the juice and the oil from the skin. Add the rum and the ice from the glass and shake well. Pour the entire contents into the chilled rock glass.
