The mother of invention - São Sebastião
I think most people who read my blog know what is a caipirinha. It is possibly Brazil's national drink, made with the local type of rum called cachaça, sugar, fruit of most kinds and ice. I love the stuff but it is deadly--one of these drinks and I'm sleeping on the couch for the rest of the afternoon.
At the house we rented in São Sebastião, there was no good mixing shaker so we dumped the sugar out of the sugar holder, poured in the ingredients, held a finger over the spout and shook it up. Delicious.
