Have you ever tried a caipirinha cocktail? Here's the official definition:

Caipirinha (pronounced “kai-pee-reen-ya”) is Brazil's national cocktail, made with cachaça, sugar and lime. Cachaça, also known as pinga, caninha, or any one of a multitude of traditional names, is Brazil's most common distilled alcoholic beverage

Cachaça (pronounced “cachaza”) is a liquor made from fermented sugar cane juice and is fairly similar to rum. However, rum is usually made from molasses, a by-product from refineries that boil the cane juice to extract as much sugar crystal as possible, while cachaça is made from fresh sugarcane juice that is fermented and distilled (Source: Wikipedia). Like most spirits it is zero carb (despite its sugary origin) and the Caipirinha is the most well-known cocktail that uses this alcohol.

So, back to the other ingredients. Lime juice has a few carbohydrates but the real issue for low-carbers is the sugar, so you just need to substitute it with a granulated sweetener like classic Lakanto. Did you know that you can get 20% off everything in the Lakanto store when you use coupon code SAFTC ? 

How to Make a Low Carb Caipirinha

Cut a thick slice of lime and cut it into quarters. Place it in a thick-bottomed short glass with the sweetener and muddle the two together. Fill the glass with ice and add the cachaça. Add a slice of lime to garnish and enjoy.
