Add two shots of cranberry juice (60ml)
Squeeze the lime half into the shaker
Add ice to the shaker.
Shake, shake, shake it to the tune of Jingle Bell Rock. IMPORTANT: Do not shake until you’ve put the top part of the shaker back on. This is a sincere waste of steps 1-5 if missed.
Pour that bad boy through the strainer and into your Carrie Bradshaw martini glass and complete with a bow on top (in this case, the lime slice).
Sip and repeat.
THE CAIPRIOSKA BY CRAFTY’S SPORTS BAR:
Prep your station with:
A standard shot glass
Shaker, strain and teaspoon
5 lime wedges
A chilled short / whiskey glass (or if you have any Tiki glasses laying around, they will certainly do the trick)
Squeeze the 5 lime wedges into the chilled short / whisky glass. Once squeezed, place the limes in the glass as well.
Add 5ml (roughly 1/6th of your shot glass) of simple syrup to the glass.
Add a teaspoon of sugar to the glass.
Add two shots of vodka (60ml) to the glass.
Pour the mixture from your glass into your shaker and add ice.
Once again, it’s very important to put the top on the shaker first, and give your cocktail a hearty shake over the shoulder for 10 seconds.
Pour it back into your glass and stir the mixture around with a teaspoon.
If you have any paper or metal straws in your house, this cocktail is best enjoyed through a straw so as to pick up the sugar that settles at the bottom of the glass.
Find any green garnish from your fridge that didn’t make it into this week’s dinner and add it for maximum professional effect.
Grab your shades, roll out the lilo and enjoy your Caiprioska in the pool and let someone else glaze the ham because your work is done here my friend.
