Today I’m going to show you a cocktail which was created by me for a very special day. This cocktail wants to be my gift to all women for their INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY ( 8 March ).
When I created this cocktail I wanted it symbolized the woman in its taste and also in its dreams. So I started to think about what usually women like drinking and what I found out is… they usually love having dinner drinking Italian Prosecco orChampagne, then they appreciate Limoncello (our Italian Lemon Liquor) as afterdinner and often they choose Vodka as distillate in their cocktals. So I decided that this cocktail had to be made with these three ingredients. But it wasn’t enough for me, I wanted that it symbolize their dreams,too. So I asked to many women where they would like to spend or love spending their Holiday and the result was Cuba,Santo Domingo or Brasil and what cocktail or ingredients remind them these wonderful places? the answer was Lime and Brown Sugar!!! The last ingredients of this cocktail were exactly those ^_^ . Finally my MIMOSA CAIPIROSKA had been born !!!
INGREDIENTS for 1 drink:
1-2 Tps Brown Sugar
2/4 Limoncello ( italian lemon liquor )
1/4 Italian Prosecco (Valdobbiadene Docg)
Choose a ripe lime ( but it has to be still green ), so the lime on the right side ( in this picture below) is the perfect one !!!
Using a knife remove the top and the buttom of the lime
then remove the central white part ( which is bitter )
then cut it into two halves
Now you have to cut into 4 pecies only a half of the lime.
Then put them into a tumbler and add 1 or 2 Tps of Brown Sugar
Using a pestle crash the lime gently
After that take the crashed Ice
and fill completly the tumbler
Pour over ice 2/4 Limoncello
then 1/4 Vodka
and last 1/4 Italian Prosecco
Stir it gently
and serve it !!!
The MIMOSA CAIPIROSKA is ready !!! Cheers!!!
I wish you a wonderful INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY to all of you !!!
