DIY :: Caipirinha Crush

Just in time for the weekend we checked in with Leigh Ann from My Diary of Us for another mouth-watering cocktail fit for a destination wedding or your next tropical travels!

The Caipirinha Crush is made with a Brazilian rum called Cachaca which is made from sugar cane, you sweeten it with sugar or agave in this case, and lots of fresh lime juice.  If you love margaritas, I am going to go ahead and say that you will love this drink and it just might...just might...give your margarita a run for it's money.


  • 1/2 Cup Cachaca Rum
  • Juice from 2 Limes
  • 2 Tbsp. Agave Nectar or Sugar
  • Crushed Ice (optional)
  • Extra Lime Wedges for garnish


  • Mix all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with a couple of ice cubes until chilled thoroughly.
  • Crush your ice, and put two lime wedges in the bottom of your glass.
  • Fill the glasses the rest of the way with crushed ice up to the rim and pour the rum mixture in each glasses.
  • Top off with a squeeze of lime.
