A delicious and simple cocktail is Caipiroska, the russian brother of the brazilian Caipirinha.
Brazil's national cocktail, Caipirinha is made with Cachaça (A type of rum, made out of sugar cane, which is Brazil's most common distilled alcoholic beverage).
Caipiroska is made with Vodka (which originated in Russia during the 14th century) instead of Cachaça.
