Tangerine Caipiroshka

READY IN: 6mins
Recipe by Vseward Chef-V

This traditional Brazilian drink prepared with cachaça gets even better when it's made with a very sweet tangerine, also called mexerica in São Paulo Recently tried this. The bartender told me it's similar to a Caipirinha, the only thing different is substituting the cachaça with Premium Vodka. The technique is just like making a mojito.... use a wooden spoon if you don't have a muddler ;)

Very potent as one would expect, but ah, so yummy with tangerine and refreshing! I can only handle 1 oz vodka with my 1/2 tangerine and I used 1 tsp of sugar to muddle with the zest. And then I ended up squeezing the juice of the 1/2 tangerine into the drink as well. Turned out great for me!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel the tangerine (careful not to get the white pith) put it in the glass. Sprinkle with the sugar and crush the pieces with a pestle (or wooden spoon).
  2. Add the vodka and stir to mix. Add the ice and stir again.
