  • 6 to 8 fresh whole strawberries
  • 1 and 1/2 lemons
  • a handful of mint leaves
  • sugar to taste (the amount you need depends on how sweet or tart the strawberries are)
  • 1/4 cup cachaça (you can use rum too)
  • club soda
  • ice


  • Reserve two strawberries and a few mint leaves.
  • Dice the remaining strawberries. Cut one lemon into eighths.
  • Place the diced strawberries and cut lemon into a shaker. Add about two teaspoonfuls of sugar and the remaining mint leaves. Muddle everything together.
  • Pour in the cachaça and shake.
  • Drop a few ice cubes into two glasses.
  • Cut the remaining lemon half into thin slices and drop into the glasses with the ice.
  • Divide the shaken drink between the glasses (pour without straining).
  • Top the drinks with enough club soda to almost fill the glasses.
  • Garnish the drinks with the reserved strawberries and mint leaves.
  • Serve at once.
