The Batida (bah-chee-dah) is probably Brazil’s second-favorite drink formula after the Caipirinha, and it’s a simple formula of cachaça blended with fruit of some kind. Try this one with coconut and passionfruit.
- 2 oz Novo Fogo Tanager Cachaça
- 1 oz passion fruit syrup
- 0.5 oz coconut milk
- 0.5 oz lime juice
Add all ingredients to a blender with half a cup of ice and blend until smooth. Garnish with freshly grated nutmeg.
Our “Tanager” expression is the first two-woods cachaça broadly available in the USA and it mixes the Brazilian South’s two favorite woods. We age this cachaça in repurposed oak barrels and finish it in casks of arariba (Brazilian zebrawood) for a natural red color and a distinctive mountain earthiness. This truly unique cachaça suggests tropical fruit, grass, cinnamon bark, and other holiday spices; it can be sipped alone or as the base spirit in twists of classic cocktails like the Sazerac.
