How to prepare the strawberry caipiroska recipe

  1. First wash the lime under running water, then dry it.
  2. Roll it on the work surface to help the juices and essential oils escape, then cut the two ends and cut the pulp into quarters, removing the internal white filament. You will only need half of it.
  3. Gather the lime, the well-washed strawberries and the light brown sugar which dissolves more easily at the bottom of the tumbler glass (or rather the specific container we talked about before). Mash everything well with the muddler.
  4. Place the ice cubes in a plastic bag and beat them roughly with the meat mallet.
  5. Now pour in the vodka , cover with ice and mix. Decorate the glass with a strawberry inserted on the edge of which you will also have left the stem.
