Description

This cool and refreshing Brazilian cocktail is the ultimate summer beverage for those warm, long evenings. The Caipiroska is an interesting twist on the classic Caipirinha which uses the sugar-cane liqour, Caçhaca.  Here the Caçhaca is replaced with vodka, a recipe which developed in the 20th century after many Brazilian travellers abroad were unable to source their beloved Brazilian caçhaca and improvised with vodka. Made here with Black Cow Vodka, this drink is zesty, revitalizing and fresh. Serve in an old fashioned glass.

For an extra explosion of flavour, you could also garnish the drink with a few pearls from finger limes.

 

  • 50ml Vodka
  • 2 tsp Sugar
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 glassful Crushed Ice
  1. Cut the lime into 6 wedges.
  2. Use a muddler or a wooden spoon to mix the lime, crushed ice and vodka. Be careful not to squash the lime too much as the drink will become too bitter.
  3. Add sugar to taste and mix.
