Rinse the limes under hot water, pat dry, and cut into thin slices.

Mix the lime slices with the cranberry juice, Cachaca, and the sugar. Mash the mixture lightly with a wooden pestle.

Pour the Cachaca mixture into the glasses and mix well with a spoon. Fill the glasses with the well chilled ginger ale.

Garnish the glasses with lemon balm leaves or fresh mint, if you'd like, and serve.
