Caipiroska and caipirinha: what's the difference?

This cocktail is a variation of the even more famous caipirinha, the Brazilian drink that has cachaca, lime, sugar and ice as its main ingredients. The two drinks differ mainly for the alcoholic part, however they are both pounded: in fact, lime and cane sugar are crushed with a small mortar, together with the fruit, for a perfectly harmonious result. Vodka, however, compared to cachaca, is more neutral and for this reason it is more suitable to undergo variations that are better than the other.

Alternatively you can also try the bloody mary cocktail.

storage

We recommend consuming the strawberry drink at the moment , before the ice melts and makes the cocktail washed out.
