One cup of rum plus 1/4 cup of sugar? Proportions not accurate?

It's a shame! As a brazillian I can say: That is not Caipirinha, for sure.The real caipirinha is like this:2 limes with the green skin partially removed (remove about 80 or 3 Tb spoon of sugar150ml or 200ml of cachaça - depending of how strong you wantice.(you may substiture the cachaça with vodka)cut limes in four, put in a mason jar with sugar and use a morter (preferencially wood made) to press and mix lime with sugar, add the cachaça, or vodka, fill with ice.Use a straw to stir and/or drink.Enjoy (you want make it christmas caipirinha, toss some snow over).
