Tangerine Caipirinha with “Dedo de Moça” Chilly Pepper



2 tangerines

Sugar to taste

Ice cubes or crashed-ice

1 “dedo de moça” chilli pepper

70 ml of cachaça


Method: Cut the tangerine segments into small pieces without the seeds. Put them in a glass and add the sugar/sweetener. Muddle with a pestle until the fruit releases plenty of juice. Put some oil in your hands (this will keep your hand safe from burning after handling the pepper). Cut the pepper into four parts, removing the white part and seeds from the inside. Thoroughly wash the pepper in running water. Put the ice in the glass, add the cachaça and mix well. Put the pepper strips in the glass and serve.
