Vitamins and nutrients in Caipirinha

Caipirinha is an alcoholic cocktail. The home of Caipirinhas is in Brazil. The ingredients are:

Cachaça is a spirit drink. More specifically, it is a Brazilian rum made from sugar cane. He is colorless to yellowish. After production, this ripens in peanut barrels for three months. The alcohol content of the rum is 37.5% by volume. As rum, it must not be flavored.

As a stimulant, the alcoholic caipirinha beverage is not primarily intended as a supplier of vitamins and minerals. Nevertheless, the limes provide high doses of vitamins, especially vitamin C.

A whole fresh lime can cover about half the daily requirement of many people for vitamin C already.

The contained sugar and alcohol provide energy. With usual dosage of the rum a total alcohol content of approximately 15-20 vol% is to be assumed.

Once you have the four basic ingredients together, it only takes a few steps for the Brazilian exotics. As an idea: Be a bit more generous with lime or enjoy the rest with sugar. By the way, this stimulant will become a true vitamin C bomb.

Brazil is one of the world's largest producers of sugar cane. Our table sugar comes from the sugar cane plant. As the Brazilian cocktail contains both sugar and sugarcane-based schnapps, one can confidently speak of a hint of Brazil in the glass.
