International brand adaptations: Smirnoff

Caipiroska is the vodka based version of the Caipirinha. Another common substitute for the traditional but somewhat harsh cachaça is the Japanese rice spirit saque, at least in São Paulo where there is a heavy Japanese cultural influence. The resulting drink is Caipisake or Sakerinha.

But for Smirnoff the former is more interesting and it makes complete sense that they try and capitalise on the the premixed drinks market not only through Smirnoff Ice but by offering their own capiroska:

The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.
