Caipirinha. Listening To Jane In Space.

I had a Caipirinha a number of years ago in a Brazilian restaurant. It came impressively garnished with a stick of sugar cane. I loved how refreshing it was.

Well, a failure to learn how to pronounce Caipirinha as well as its main ingredient cachaça made me reluctant to try and order it out at other bars and I soon forgot about it. Then I was at the gym recently and was flipping through a copy of Men’s Journal, of all things, and came across a recipe for Caipirinha.

Cue up today’s cocktail. Simultaneously sweet and tangy, the Caipirinha is a go-to drink for warm weather entertaining. I still can’t help you on the pronunciation, but I am sure that there is an app for that.



3/4 lime, cut into pieces
2 to 3 tsp raw sugar
2 oz cachaça (Brazilian brandy)


1. Muddle lime and sugar in a rocks glass.

2. Add cachaça, and fill glass with ice. Stir well and serve.

Makes 1 cocktail

Recipe slightly adapted from Men’s Journal

It’s warm, you are finally able to relax with a drink and kick back. Try some industrial strength electronica from Jane In Space to get your head in a celebratory mood. Strong beats, a driving rhythm and that hook that cooks…great stuff.

Check out Jane In Space on the band’s Website where you can link to buy their music.
