This Blueberry Caipiroska is a refreshing and easy cocktail recipe from Brazil.
It is officially summertime, isn’t it? And the summer heat is definitely out in full swing. It is HOT! I have been consuming my share amount of lime juice, lemonades, and slushies.
I’m excited for the countless pool parties, beach lime, and summer evening dinners. I use summer to make so many memories with my friends. I really do love the season.
One of the newer drinks I have been introduced to was a caipiroska. And boy must I tell you, this cocktail is perfect for a summer cool down.
This is an “adult only” cool me down. A caipiroska is made of mostly vodka. It is a very common drink in Brazil. It is the cousin to the caipirinha but instead of using cachaca we use vodka.
I was introduced to this drink at one of my friend’s weekly pool parties a few summers ago. Originally from Brazil, he loved mixing these up for us at his parties as he played around on the grill.
What I loved about this recipe is that it doesn’t require any work other than pouring and blending making it perfect for pool parties where you don’t want to spend too much time making things versus spending time with your friends.
What is important to making this drink is making sure that the fruits you use are fresh and sweet. When washing the blueberries I remove any that seem bruised.
Add everything to your blender and enjoy!
