Strawberry Caipiroska Recipe

cocktail Caipiroska strawberry

This recipe will teach you how to make a Strawberry Caipiroska, one of my personal favorites. It’s cold, refreshing and sweet, so it goes very well with party snacks. Or you can just treat yourself after a long day. The soft crushed ice is just wonderful.

Caipiroskas are drinks inspired by the caipirinha, the famous Brazilian party cocktail. Unlike caipirinhas, caipiroskas are made with vodka instead of cachaça, a distintive Brazilian spirit. Personally I like the vodka version better.

This recipe has brown sugar, but you can always try a substitute of your choice.  I don’t indulge often but for this drink I do!

So are you ready for a cocktail? Here we go!

Tips

The quantities of the ingredients are approximate, adjust them as you like.
This soft crushed ice cocktail is perfect if you have some left over strawberries that are a little soft and squishy.
You can decorate the glass with a half strawberry and a lemon slice.
You can also grind the fruit with a few mint leaves. And decorate the glass with some fresh mint leaves.
The drink can be served with a cocktail stick, which you can use to prick the strawberry pieces when you empty your glass.
If you don't have crushed ice readily available, you can easily crush it by hammering a few ice cubes wrapped in a clean cloth.
