Enjoy a Caipirinha – The National drink of Brazil!

Drank throughout Brazil, the Caipirinha is made from Cacacha, a very sweet style of Rum made from sugarcane juice.

Ingredients: 1 Lime quartered, 2 Teaspoons of fine sugar, 60ml Cacacha.

To make: Muddle the lime wedges and sugar in the glass, fill with ice cubes, top up with Cacacha. Simple and delicious!

Support a Brazilian Children’s Charity!

SOS Children’s Villages is a fantastic charity which we were introduced to by Chavin. Money donated to this charity goes directly to children and villages giving them a better quality of life and a brighter future. Over the last ten years poverty in Brazil has decreased substantially and living standards have increased, however in the most deprived areas 97% of children still live without access to decent sewerage and are at high risk of life threatening diseases through infection. In rural areas one in three children are unable to read or write and in the cities young children are found without parental care often ending up on the streets, where they are vulnerable to gang violence, sexual abuse and drug addiction.

If you wont be going out to watch the football, why not spend that money on some Brazilian children’s futures.
