A Brazilian classic with an Eastern European twist is possibly the best way to describe the Caipiroska. Belvedere vodka, made in Poland at the Polmos Żyrardów distillery, replaces the traditional Cachaça in this deeply refreshing drink. Orange and limes bring a tart note to the beverage but don’t forget the raspberries too. Yes, they’re used as garnish but their summery sweetness adds an extra layer of deliciousness! As long as you respect the balance of sweet and sour, most fruit combinations are possible: passion fruit and lime, grapefruit and pomegranate seeds… Play around and have fun.
