Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Cachaça is a Brazilian liquor made from fermented sugarcane juice. If you can’t find it, use vodka, and then your drink should be called Caipiroska.
  • tip 2
    To make the original Brazilian Caipirinha, replace the strawberries with half of a lime (unpeeled), cut into 4 pieces.
  • tip 3
    If you don’t have a muddler, use a wooden spoon to mash the fruit and sugar.
  • tip 4
    For a low-sugar, low-calorie drink, substitute artificial sweetener for the sugar (adjust quantity to taste).
