Tropical Drink Recipe of the Day: Brazilian Lime Cocktail

I have a simple and refreshing cocktail recipe for you today: A Brazilian Lime cocktail (or Caipirosca/Caipiroska- I’ve seen it spelled both ways and I’m not sure which is correct.) The traditional form of this cocktail is made with a special liquor produced in Brazil called Cachaça, but this version made with vodka is pretty darn good. 🙂
(Be sure to check out my round up of all the Best Tropical Drinks we made while on vacation.)
Caipirosca – Brazilian Lime cocktail
- 1 lime cut in to 6 wedges
- 2 tablespoons of sugar (plus extra for the cup rim if desired)
- 1 oz vodka
- ice (crushed ice works best)
Enjoy! If you like it, don’t forget to pin it!

I am so glad that you enjoy caipiroska, a refreshing drink from my home country, Jamie!
sounds good – I LOVE Caipirinhas (with fresh sugar cane) so this is a nice substitute if you don't have cachaca.
