… while enjoying a Caiprioska cocktail on the deck of our hotel's beach bar … at the Marea Apart Hotel on Praia dos Ingleses, Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil.
[…] a development of caipirinha, […]The Caiprioska was created in London, where instead of cachaça Russian vodka was used, hence the name. It is believed that the caipirinha was born by workers on the sugar cane plantations in Brazil, who were looking for a tasty way to drink their produced cachaça.
[…] Caiprioska recipe:
60 ml of good vodka (no super premium, it is wasted if you mix it)
1 tablespoon palm sugar (I use block sugar and work it with a rolling pin and minimal water on a texture that is slightly thicker than cooled honey.)
½ lime (wedged)
Mix lime and sugar (do not use syrup, the thicker palm sugar really helps to extract the perfumed oils in the lime shell.)
Fill in vodka
Add ice and stir (place under the sugar and mix well)
Find a restaurant where you can see and hear the beach and spend your afternoon with perhaps the best cocktail ever created for our summer climate.
Cheers and thanks for stopping by.
