I really like the Brazilian spirit cachaça. Anything that is the primary ingredient in a drink as good as a caipirinha can't be all bad. A batida is a drink made with cachaça and a fruit juice or pulp. This is my recipe for a mango batida:
1.5 oz Cachaça
0.5 oz Cointreau
4.0 oz Naked Juice Mighty Mango
2 dashes bitters
Place in a shaker, fill with ice and shake like your life depended on it.
Warning: this drink is *extremely* easy to drink.
Strobist info: Single 285HV to the left and slightly above the drink. The flash was gridspotted and aimed at the glass.
I've narrowed down my selections for DCist Exposed 2009, and would love your help in deciding what to post to the group. View the complete set and instructions.
