2 ripe, firm red plums, such as Santa Rosa or Elephant Heart
110g sugar

3) Put the diced limes and remaining plums in a large open jug. Crush thoroughly with a potato masher.

4) Add the cachaca and plum cooking liquid and fill the jug with ice cubes. Pour into chilled short glasses, allowing some ice and fruit to fall into each glass. Garnish each drink with a slice of poached plum.
