Celebrate Brazil's World Cup quarterfinals win with this refreshing caipirinha cocktail (video)

Note: I am not promoting this brand of cachaça -- I just liked the video.

Whether you're celebrating Brazil's win in the World Cup quarterfinals against Chile this afternoon or just in need of a refreshing cocktail for these hot summer days, be sure to try out this recipe: the caipirinha (kai-preen-ya). It's a blend of sweet and tart, incredibly easy to make, and one of my favorite warm weather drinks.

The caipirinha is Brazil's answer to the mojito using cachaça (ka-sha-sah) — a clear liquor similar to light rum that's also made from sugarcane — in place of the rum. The only real difference between the two, besides the liquor used, is that "caipirinha" is a bit harder to say than "mojito".

Check out this video below of an attractive Latin woman giving a caipirinha making tutorial:

(And if you were rooting for Chile, I'm sorry.)
