Caprioska Cocktail


You’ll need a cocktail shaker and a pestle (or rolling pin!) for this recipe.

Ingredients

(Per person)

* 0.5 cup of crushed ice
* 2 shots of Vodka (about 30 mL or 1 fl.oz.)
* 1 lime cut into half wedges
* 1 teaspoons of brown sugar (or however much you like)

Instructions

1. Add the lime wedges and brown sugar into the cocktail shaker and crush together with the pestle until the lime juice has been released.
2. Add the vodka and crushed ice to the cocktail shaker and shake vigourously until mixed.
3. Pour the mixture into a glass and enjoy!

Optional

To make a Caipirinha, replace the vodka with rum.

Fruity caprioskas are a delightful variation on the traditional caprioskas. Try adding 2 pieces of fruit such as lychee, mandarin or strawberries, or 2 teaspoons of mixed berries after Step 1, crush with the lime wedges and sugar, then continue with Step 2 and 3.

(Note: This is a recipe a friend gave me from this site: http://www.suezanntoh.com/posts/recipes/cocktail-recipes/24. It looks really yummy and I am dying to try it.
