There are Brazilian cocktails – and then there’s the Batida.  Brazil is world-renowned for its cuisine and its cocktails, and the batida certainly helps its cause.  The word “batida” actually means “shaken” or “milkshake”, and can also simultaneously refer to a “crash”, which goes to show how exciting the drink can be.  It is one of the few cocktails in the world that use the Brazilian national alcoholic drink, the cachacha.

As if this wasn’t enough, in two of the largest cities in Brazil, Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo; batidas are even traditionally served with the national dish, the feijoada, a stew including beef, beans, and pork.  It truly doesn’t get more patriotic than that!

Ingredients:

  • two ounces cachacha
  • one ounce of fruit juice (typically lemon or passion fruit)
  • .5 ounce of coconut milk, sweet condensed milk, or sour cream (optional)
  • .5 ounce of lime juice (optional)
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Pour all of the ingredients into a blender with half a cup of crushed ice
  2. And blend until smooth and frothy (which is the signature texture of the batida)
  3. Pour the batidas into chilled glasses (often “zombie” glasses) and serve cold

Equipment:

  • Blender
  • Glasses (typically “zombie” glasses)

There are many variations to the batida cocktail.  For example, some people prefer vodka to using cachacha.  Also, many people prefer different fruits in their batida, ranging from guava, mango, or pineapple, to apricot, peach, watermelon, and more.  This classic Brazilian cocktail is often garnished with a pineapple leaf. Enjoy your tropical Brazilian batida today!
