World Cup Party: Brazilian Pineapple & Coconut Batida Cocktail



Did you watch the World Cup opening match yesterday? Nail biting, right? 

Well, with a few days of match-watching, celebrating and cheering for our favorite soccer / football teams; there's nothing better to get in the tropical spirit of things than with a  refreshing Brazilian drink!

We all know and love the Caipirinhas (try this cool twist), but have you heard about another popular cocktail called 'Batida'? The name literally means 'beaten' and derives from the fact that all the ingredients are well; beaten or blitzed in a  blender. Now, you can't get easier than that for a cocktail, right?! :)


Traditionally, Batida is made with Cachaça (aguardente), which is a Brazilian type of rum made with sugar cane juice. It's sold in most Latin supermarkets or liquor stores, but you can also substitute with vodka, or leave it out entirely for a non-alcoholic version.

You can also basically substitute the recipe with the fruits of your choice or whatever is in season: strawberries, passion fruit, mango etc
