Caipiroska

The Caipiroska is a twist on the popular Caipirinha - the national cocktail of Brazil. A simple cocktail, Caipiroska is made with muddled limes, sugar and vodka served with plenty of crushed ice. My fruity variation includes blackberries to create a vibrant cocktail that is perfect for summer.

Instructions

Classic Caipiroska

Notes

Slimming World Cocktail
A Caipiroska is actually a pretty good cocktail on the Slimming World plan as it contains only one spirit – two measures of vodka which are 6 syns. If you create your own calorie-free sugar syrup using Sukrin or any granulated sweetener you can keep this at a relatively low syn level.
How to make Sugar-free Simple Syrup
Put 200ml water and 200g granulated sweetener (or any measures at a 1:1 ratio) in a saucepan and stir over medium heat to dissolve.Turn the heat off as soon as the syrup comes to a simmer and strain into a clean jar. Keep in the fridge for up to a week.
