Drinks Beginning With C

Caffè Corretto (Espresso Corretto)
1 part grappa (or brandy), 2 parts espresso. A shot of espresso coffee “corrected” with a shot, usually grappa or brandy. 
One lime (tip: get rid of white center), 1-2 tsp (5-10 mL) sugar (to taste), cachaça (to fill glass containing lime, sugar, and ice).
Cut the lime in four pieces and crush with sugar using a wooden pestle in a whiskey tumbler or similar glass. Add cachaça, stir, and finally add crushed or grained ice, or ice in cubes. The finer the ice, the faster it cools, but also dilutes the mixture. 
See for Caipirinha. Cachaça is substituted by vodka.
