|A wild Caipirinha!|
- Caipirinha is derived from the Portuguese word - caipira (hick, hayseed, country bumpkin, rube...) and "inha" suffix (a word meaning little or small).
- Its beginnings can be traced back to around 1918.
- It is Brazil's national cocktail and it is drank anytime, anywhere.
- The ancestor of this drink was a mix of lemon, garlic, honey - supposedly used as cure for the Spanish flu (still used for colds today).
