Courtesy of Brazilian restaurant Galeto this refreshing drink will bring some sunshine to your day even when it's miserable outside.

Blending together strawberries and limes with a dash of sugar, this tipple is simple to make and will instantly transport you to a hot, sunny beach - even in the depths of December.

Serve with plenty of crushed ice, sit back and relax...


  • 50ml of Cachaca (this is a Brazilian spirit for the authentic touch, any type of rum will substitute)
  • 5 limes
  • 1 cup of strawberries
  • 10 teaspoons Demerara sugar
  • 1kg cubed ice


1 Serve with plenty of crushed ice, sit back and relax.

2 Press and roll the limes on a chopping board with the heel of your hand to get the juices flowing before cutting them into wedges and squeezing each into a large jug.

3 After the juices have been squeezed, add the squeezed wedges and mash 1 cup of fresh strawberries.

4 Add the mashed strawberries and Demerara sugar to the jug and use a large wooden spoon to smash and mix the ingredients together.

5 Half fill the jug with cubed ice and pour in the cachaca and mix again.

6 Pour into a glass and garnish with a large fresh strawberry and sprig of mint.
