I need a good colloquial Brazillian word or expression for snob. To name a cocktail.

I picked up some strawberries yesterday and am working on a four drink cocktail menu utilizing them. So far I've got the Pimm's Cup and a drink called Pinche Fresa which consists of cucumbers, strawberries, lime juice, ghost chili infused tequila and Cointreau.
I'd like to do a strawberry caipirinha and am looking for a word in portuguese with a meaning similar to the the slang term 'fresa' in spanish. As 'caipirinha' has a meaning similiar to 'bumpkin', a word that has connotations of someone trying to live above their class would be perfect.
And the fourth drink will probably be gin based, so any good British words for the same concept would be a handy bonus.
