Caipirissima

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 0.5 Lime
  • .75 ounce Brown Sugar Syrup
  • 2 ounces Rum

Chill a rocks glass with cracked ice. Place the lime quarters in the bottom of a mixing glass, add the syrup, and muddle, extracting the juice and the oil in the skin from the lime quarters. Add the rum to the mixture in the mixing glass, dump the ice from the rocks glass into the mixing glass, and shake well. Pour the entire contents of the mixing glass back into the chilled rocks glass and serve.
