Pineapple Caipiroska

Most of ya'll are probably familiar with the Caipirinha made with the Brazilian spirit Cachaca.  The Caipiroska is basically the same muddled drink but made with vodka.  In this version I am also using fresh pineapple because it is a natural partner with sage.  Breakdown:  Muddle four lime slices with three leaves of pungent sage, add a half ounce of pineapple juice, .75 oz of demerara (raw sugar) simple syrup, two ounces of Moon Mountain Vodka  shake and place back into the rocks glass you muddled with.  Usually, a Caipiroska would never get a club soda finish but I like a little bit for texture.  This drink would be ideal for a balmy Chicago May evening, but unfortunately it's like fifty degrees and raining.  After three of these you will not care.
