Serves: 2

Ingredients

2 limes, cut into wedges
4-6 tsp light brown soft sugar
4 fresh lime leaves (optional)
2 small passion fruit, halved
60ml vodka
crushed ice

Method

1. Put the lime wedges, sugar, 2 lime leaves (if using) and the pulp from 1 passion fruit in a cocktail shaker (or a sturdy jug or large cup). Use the end of a rolling pin or a wooden spoon handle to muddle the ingredients together, gently bruising the lime wedges and dissolving the sugar. Stir in the vodka followed by a handful of crushed ice. Add a lid and shake vigorously (or stir well). Taste and add a little more sugar, if liked.

2. Half-fill 2 tumblers with crushed ice and divide the unstrained caipiroska mixture between them. Fill to the top with crushed ice, decorate with the 2 remaining lime leaves (if using) and passion fruit halves to serve.
