According to Wikipedia, Caipiroska is a form of Caiprihinha prepared with vodka instead of the usual cachaça. It is a popular cocktail in Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina. It is also sometimes known as Caipivodka and Caipirodka. It has grown in popularity in recent years as access to international vodkas continues to diversify in South America.
With this diverse and exotic history, it is not a surprise that the Caipiroska is one of our most popular drinks. It is usually made with Vodka, lime and sugar. Other varieties would include mint, ginger and sometimes even strawberries or passion fruit. The muddling of sugar and limes is what makes it a popular ladies’ cocktail, but gents don’t count this one out yet, the classic sweet and sour mix of this drink is the key to its popularity among everyone!
