Caipiroska Cocktail Recipe


The Caipirinha is Brazil’s national cocktail, and its popularity has spurred numerous variations, as bartender's tweak the classic drink by adding fruits and liqueurs or subbing in different base spirits. This is how the world's best party drink was born: The Caipiroska!

This simple take on the Caipirinha replaces the traditional cahaça in favour of vodka. The former is Brazil’s national spirit. Vodka, sports a lighter, straightforward profile that yields a lighter-tasting cocktail, and crucially is much more accessible. We still recommend using a high quality vodka for the best results, of which we have plenty available on The Bottle Club website. The beauty of this cocktail is its scalability... and of course - its likeability!
