Vodka Lime Cairpiroska

Here is a twist on the popular Brazilian Caipirinha, the Cairpiroska. This drink uses vodka in the place of cachaça, resulting in a fresh, citrusy drink that has become my new favourite way to enjoy vodka.

It originated as a field-worker’s drink as it is easy to make and very refreshing. Especially enjoyable during the warmer months.



  • 2 parts vodka
  • Juice of one lime
  • 2 Tsp Sugar
  • Crushed ice


  1. In a cocktail shaker, add lime cut into wedges and fine sugar.
  2. Muddle the cocktail, allowing sugar to dissolve with time.
  3. Add ice and vodka.
  4. Vigorously shake and pour into a chilled glass garnished with lime.
  5. Enjoy
