recipe road test - tangelo caprioska

In honour of Haalo's Friday o'clock Swill, I decided to road test her tangelo caprioska.

This recipe is easy and delicious.

I thoroughly recommend it, although I do warn you they are very easy to drink so you may find yourself chugging down a few before realising the adverse effects!

Tangelo Caprioska
Recipe by Haalo at Cook (almost) Anything At Least Once. Makes 1.
1 tangelo, cut into 16 pieces
1 tablespoon sugar
60ml lemon vodka
1 tablespoon sugar syrup
ice cubes
1. Muddle most of the tangelo pieces with the sugar. Strain.
2. Place a handful of ice in the shaker add strained tangelo juice, vodka and sugar syrup. Shake well.
3. In a sugar rimmed glass, filled half with ice, add the shaken ingredients.
4. Garnish with the set-aside tangelo pieces.

Anna's variations: None! This recipe was brilliant just as it was. I used heart shaped ice cubes, homemade sugar syrup and Absolut Citron and I adored the final product.



  1. Yum - can you make me one too?

  2. I'm a little stuck - what's a Tangelo? We don't have them in England.
    Now I've asked the question, of course, I'll go and check on Google anyway.
    Still, it has got me thinking!

  3. scott, i didn't quite know how to answer that question either. a tangelo was just a tangelo.

    now that i'm curious i went to wikipedia and it said "The tangelo is a citrus fruit that is a hybrid of a mandarin orange, popularly known as a tangerine, and either a pomelo or a grapefruit."

    i never knew that!


Thanks for saying hello. It's great to know there are people out there in cyberspace!
