Caipiroska

Ingredients

This cocktail is the sister to Brazil’s famous cocktail, the Caipirinha, but made with vodka in place of cachaça. According to famous bartender Tony Abou-Ganim, he claimed this fresh, citrusy drink matches best with “a clean, neutral vodka with fruity, floral notes—something made from corn, wheat or mixed grain, something gentle.”

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 oz Vodka
  • 1 oz Sugar
  • 1 Lime

PREPARATION

First cut up the lime in roughly eight equal sections, removing some of the central white pith and ends. Muddle the wedges with the sugar in the bottom of a lowball glass. Fill glass with crushed ice before pouring in the vodka and stirring to combine. Garnish with a lime wedge on the edge of the glass and serve.
