Twist and Toast
This is the kind of drink you mix up when you want to feel invigorated.
In a glass, add the lime wedges and sprinkle the sugar on top. You can adjust the amount of sugar to your taste, but usually 1 to 2 tablespoons should do.
With a muddler or the back of a spoon, muddle the sugar and lime together. You want to press the limes to release their juice but also to infuse the sugar with the essential oils from the lime peel.
Add 2 ounces of cachaça, which is a Brazilian liquor made from sugarcane. You can find cachaça in most liquor stores or even order it online.
Mix the ingredients and fill the glass with crushed ice. Stir your cocktail until it’s well mixed.
