Caipiroska

This famous South American cocktail has grown in popularity in the last two decades, and is perfect for Australia’s sunny summer weather. Fresh lime and vodka give the drink a tart bite which is offset by the sweetness of the sugar.

Tip

*Crushing the lime and sugar together is also known as ‘muddling’. A quick and easy way to muddle the two is to use the end of a rolling pin, but don’t go overboard – you don’t want essential oils in the lime rind to make the drink bitter.

  • 45ml vodka
  • 1tsp caster sugar

Method

1. Crush lime and sugar in a cocktail shaker.*
