La Trocha – the place for Brazilian Caipirinhas

In Madrid’s c/Huertas you will find a small bar called La Trocha. This bar has been around for over 25 years, serving the famous Brazilian drink Caipirinha. The way they make caipirinha is by cutting lemons up into small pieces and using a press to squeeze the juice out of them. To this is added ice and sugar with a good measure of the Brazilian liquor Cacha├ža to finish off – it is simply gorgeous!! It’s so good that 80% of all bar sales come from this drink. La Trocha itself is quite small but very cosy and the jazz music that is played in the background adds to the atmosphere.

    I believe that the drink is actually made with lime instead of lemon. Lime has a nice mellow taste as compared to lemon.
