May we introduce: Caipiroska, the somewhat lesser known Russian brother of the famous Caipirinha. In fact, the two cocktails have more in common than just the first two syllables of their names. Except for the spirit used, the drinks are similar in their ingredients and share their refreshing taste. The perfect nightcap for spring and balmy summer evenings at the bar.

Unlike Brazilian sugarcane liquor, vodka* does not have a distinctive taste of its own. Due to this property, there is a difference in taste between the Caipiroska and its big sister.

For the caipiroska

  • 60 ml vodka
  • 2 tsp white cane sugar
  • 1 organic lime
  • Crushed ice


  • Muddler
  • Old fashioned glass
  • Shaker*


Wash the lime under hot water and rub vigorously dry with a towel. Then quarter and cut three of the four pieces in half again. Set aside the large lime quarter for later decoration.
Add the remaining lime wedges, cane sugar and vodka to the shaker. Use the pestle to crush the limes.
Add a good handful of crushed ice to the shaker and shake vigorously until condensation forms on the shaker.
Pour the drink without strainer* into a pre-chilled Old Fashioned glass. Decorate with the remaining lime quarter and serve with two straws. Ready is your homemade Caipiroska!

To further refine your Caipiroska, simply add some fruit puree (20 to 40 ml) to the glass before adding the rest of the ingredients from the shaker. Depending on the fruit, this creates a Caipiroska with a refreshing fruit flavor.

Caipiroska vs. Caipirinha

Strictly speaking, it is not an independent cocktail, but a variant of Caipirinha, since only the spirit varies and they are relatively similar in taste.

Strawberry Caipiroska

The somewhat sweeter, fruitier and also popular version of Caipiroska is refined with a small sip of strawberry puree. To do this, simply add 20 to 40 ml of strawberry puree to the glass before adding the rest of the ingredients from the shaker*. Do not stir before serving. That honor falls to your guests.

Strawberry caipiroska tastes best if you make your strawberry puree yourself and from fresh strawberries. Completely without artificial preservatives or any E-numbers on the ingredients list. To do this, simply turn the ripe berries and a good portion of sugar into a smooth puree using a magic wand. Then strain through a fine sieve, ready! If you prepare the cocktail for yourself and you don’t mind the little seeds, you can of course omit the straining.
