Batida is one of many Brazilian cocktails made with the national alcoholic drink, called cachaça. In Portuguese batida means shaken or milkshake.

Ingredients[edit]

  • 1 part of fruit juice, coconut milk, or a mixture of both
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 parts of cachaça

Procedure[edit]

  1. Place all the components in a blender and blend very briefly, just to mix all the components.
  2. Serve cold or in a tumbler with ice.

Variations[edit]

An optional recipe is made adding sweetened condensed milk and/or sour cream along with the fruit juice.

Like almost all of the cachaça drinks, some people prefere to replace the cachaça with vodka.

The most popular batida flavours are passion fruit and coconut.
