The Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, made with cachaça, which is distilled from sugarcane. This version comes together in a Mason jar, which is ideal for portable sippers. The jars can be used to carry a premixed drink, or take a suggestion from Mix: Make and shake a drink in the jar, which then can double as the glass.

Six of the Best To-Go Cocktails to Make at Home
  • ½ lime
  • 1 heaping teaspoon sugar
  • 2 ounces cachaça

Put lime and sugar in Mason jar. Use muddler to crush lime and extract juice. Add cachaça, and scoop in ice. Seal jar tightly, and shake well to combine and chill. Drink directly from jar.
