I find these traditional Brazilian cocktails very easy to make, but have been surprised at how complicated people can make them. Most You-Tubes I have seen add unnecessary ingredients as well as butcher the pronunciation of the Brazilian liquor in it, cachaça (cah-sha-sah), which is made from sugar cane. I made two nice batches this past few days... Unfortunately, I am not able to give exact measures as I never do measure anything when I make them. Approximately: three large limes, squeezed, two trays of ice, 3/4 C sugar, 1 C or so of cachaça, and I always add some water. You can't go wrong.
