Caipirinha

In this video I make a Caipirinha - the National Cocktail of Brazil. Ok so this cocktail is very, very tasty -- but also extremely strong! Things get a bit silly too, I get the outfits out -- forget to muddle my drinks and put less and less ice in to the point where the last 2 drinks are practically pure cachaca. I had a sore head after this video, but having just one or two were very nice indeed. Have a go....
