It is the Caipirinha, which is made with cachaça, sugar, ice and fruit. I sampled this drink in lime, strawberry, passion fruit and a strawberry and passion fruit mix.
The drink was delicious and goes down easily. But it is strong, and many people warn the tourists as they are counting their drinks, 'one, two three, floor'.
There was a day and a half where I didn't feel well, and wonder if it was all the sugar from these drinks. I don't consume a lot of sugar in my regular diet, and I think my body went into shock because it is a sugar cane based alcohol and more sugar is added into it.
The drink is definitely a must try when you are down there!
