Caipirosca

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 0.5 Lime
  • .75 ounce Brown Sugar Syrup
  • 2 ounces Vodka

Place the lime quarters in the bottom of mixing glass, add the syrup, and muddle, extracting the juice and the oil in the skin from the lime quarters. Fill a rocks glass three-fourths full of cracked ice and pour it over to the mixing glass along with the vodka. Shake well, pour the entire contents back into the rocks glass, and serve.
