Caipiroska is a form of Caipirinha prepared with vodka instead of the usual cachaça. It is a popular cocktail in Brazil, Paraguay, Uruguay and Argentina. It is also sometimes known as Caipivodka and Caipirodka. It has grown in popularity in recent years as access to international vodkas continues to diversify in South America.
Although the “proper” way to make a Caipiroska is a matter of quite varied opinion, the basic recipe requires:
60 ml (2.1 imp fl oz; 2.0 US fl oz) vodka
½ lime, cut into wedges
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon raw or turbinado sugar
Use an old fashioned or highball glass.
