    Well, sugar cane rum right...thought the standard was muddled limes, sugar, ice, and cachaca...very strong drink. Possible alternative..mojitos...garnished with a piece of sugarcane.

      Caipirinhas can vary by just changing the fruit. A tangerine caipirinha is great. I also was really surprised by a Jalapeno caipirinha, you get waves of contrasting sensations.
