The Caipiroska cocktail is a variation to the Caipirinha cocktail, the Russian version, and it’s a fantastic, flexible recipe to play around with. Try muddling different fruits along with the lime wedge (e.g. lychees, strawberries, passionfruit), and adding different syrups & liqueurs to create interesting combinations. Just remember to keep its flavor profile balanced.
You can use 2/3 shot of simple syrup instead of granulated sugar. White granulated sugar works better than brown granulated sugar, but feel free to experiment.
