To prepare the Caipiroska, first cut a lime into quarters. Put these pieces into a cocktail shaker together with sugar syrup and vodka. Take a pestle and crush the lime quarters. Be careful not to squeeze too hard. The skin should have remained mostly in tack after crushing.

Now add a few ice cubes to the shaker and shake it well for about 20 seconds. Fill a tumbler with crushed ice and add more lime quarters to the glass. Now you can strain the mix from the shaker into the glass. You can then serve the Caipiroska or enjoy it yourself!

This is what Caipiroska tastes like


30 Reviews

Caipiroska has a sweet, fruity taste that is clearly influenced by the tart and sour notes of the limes. In any case, be careful not to crush the limes too much. Otherwise, bitter substances could be released from the lime peel, which would make the drink taste very tart and bitter. Unlike the Caipirinha, the Caipiroska also has intense alcoholic notes. However, these do not come to the fore unpleasantly, but harmonise very well with the other ingredients used. Try the Caipiroska yourself and let yourself be convinced by its taste!

The vodka's answer

The Caipiroska is the Russian answer to the Brazilian Caipirinha cocktail. In fact, the two cocktails are very similar in preparation. The taste, however, is quite different. The notes from the vodka are strongly subdued by the cachaça. The refreshing cocktail also has a sour-tart taste and is at least as refreshing as its Brazilian brother. However, if you love a real Caipi, you probably won’t be happy with the Caipiroska.

In the shadow of its Brazilian brother

To this day, the Caipiroska is clearly overshadowed by its Brazilian brother, the Caipirinha. The Caipi can be found on almost every menu in cocktail bars, is prepared at barbecues and belongs in every restaurant. You can usually only get the Caipiroska on request, if at all. Unjustly, in our opinion! Even though the Caipirinha is directly associated with summer, sun and sunshine, the Caipiroska is in no way inferior to this model. The taste of both drinks is only slightly different. Therefore, you should definitely try both cocktails to find out which one will become your new favourite.
