Caipirissima

Caipirissima cocktail with muddled limes, brown sugar syrup, and light rum

The Caipirissima is essentially a Daiquiri, made in the style of a Caipirinha. It’s a deliciously rustic approach, and we can even appreciate the little bits of lime flesh as we slurp.

We’ve seen a lot of variation in the syrup measure across the many versions of this recipe floating about. We like it with about a tablespoon of demerara (brown sugar) syrup, but your milage may vary – feel free to increase or decrease the measure to suit your taste, and the sweetness of your limes and chosen rum. Use half the given amount if you’re using granulated or brown sugar instead of syrup.

Ingredients

Instructions

Muddle the limes and syrup in a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice, and shake vigorously. Pour unstrained into a short glass.

Cocktail Party app on tablets and phones

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Really Good App

We downloaded the app after seeing it as one of the top posts on /r/cocktails, and we've been playing around with it and adding our ingredients to the list. While it's not an all inclusive list of ingredients (missing some creme de ), it's a solid overall app and tosses out some truly spectacular recipes based on what you have in your liquor cabinet. Minor quibbles for an otherwise fantastic application!
