    In lowball glass, muddle chopped strawberries and sugar until juices are released from berries, leaving some pieces of fruit intact.

    Add cachaça; stir to combine. Fill glass with ice; stir again. Garnish with whole strawberry. Serve immediately.

  • 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.
  • To make the original Brazilian Caipirinha, replace the strawberries with half of a lime (unpeeled), cut into 4 pieces.
  • If you don’t have a muddler, use a wooden spoon to mash the fruit and sugar.
  • For a low-sugar, low-calorie drink, substitute artificial sweetener for the sugar (adjust quantity to taste).
