Man selling alcoholic drinks, including caipirinha at Copacabana Beach.
Caipirinha is a typical alcoholic drink made with cachaça, lemon, sugar and ice. Simple but effective! Sugary, it is hard to feel how much alcohol is being ingested.
But then, you stand up after a couple of glasses on a sunny day – and feel like the entire world is spinning around you.
Alcohol + sun = extra hardwork for the emergency teams due to dehydration at the beach
Alcohol + waves = extra hard work for the lifeguards.
