Ingredients:
  • 1.75 oz Cachaça Fazenda Mãe de Ouro
  • 1/2 Fresh Tahiti Lime
  • 1 - 2 teaspoons superfine cane sugar
  • Crushed ice
  • Steps:
  • Cut off the ends of the lime and cut it into eight even wedges. Be sure to remove the white core.
  • Sprinkle the sugar over 4 lime slices in the bottom of an old-fashioned glass.
