Pick-Me-Up... Strawberry Ginger Caipiroska

julipmade47

This is a perfect, refreshing summer cocktail with a bit of spice. It is a take on a Caipirinha except instead of cachaça it is made with vodka and in this case the last of the strawberry infused vodka.

Ingredients:
  • strawberries, diced
  • fresh ginger, minced (amount depends on how spicy you like it)
  • mint
  • 1 oz strawberry vodka
  • 3 oz ginger ale
Note.  I'm not sure why the lemon is there as it was not used so disregard, although I'm sure adding a little lemon juice would be delicious as well!

    1. Muddle the strawberries, mint, and fresh ginger in a cocktail shaker.  
    2. Mix in ginger ale and strawberry vodka.  Don't shake.
    3. Pour over ice and enjoy!

    I'm off to some cocktails and munchies with some other lovely DC bloggers, so for those of you not in DC, hopefully this can substitute!

    1. Julie, I seriously wished we lived closer -- you are a girl after my own heart! The caipirinha is my absolute favorite cocktail. Caipiroska's are an excellent substitute as it is, but add strawberry?? YUM.
