Berry Batida

July 12th, 2007

The Batida is a Brazilian cocktail family that combines Cachaça, sugar and various fruits. Of course that combination is most famously combined as the Caipirinha, which is, technically, just a lime Batida. Cachaça works equally well with many other fruits though, so if you enjoy Caipirinhas then it is worth stocking up on some other fruits and giving them a try. Coconut, passion fruit, and pineapple all make delicious Batidas, but today I’m using raspberries and blackberries.

After trying out various ratios of lemon, sugar syrup and fruit I settled on the above recipe which provides just enough extra sweetness to balance well with the tartness of the berries and lemon. I got the idea of using orange bitters in this from Jamie Boudreau, and it definitely adds a subtle improvement to the flavour. If you don’t have Cachaça on hand you can sub-in white rum or even vodka, however there’s something unique about the Cachaça that works so well in drinks like this, so do try and get your hands on some if you can.
