pineapple & vanilla caipirinha

With this extreme heat we have been experiencing, I have been craving an ice cold pineapple and vanilla cocktail…which will go perfectly with an afternoon of lazying around the pool.

As one of my favourite cocktails is a pineapple caipirinha…I decided to give it a little twist and make it a pineapple and vanilla caipirinha, using Absolut Vanilla Vodka (also one of my favourites – it’s great with coke). If you don’t have or like the vanilla variant, it is also great with original Absolut Vodka.

To celebrate the heat and all things good in our lives, I invited some friends around and we made a batch of these delicious pineapple and vanilla caipirinhas… and the obviously relaxed at the pool side.
