Mango Batida

Prev Next

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.

    I can always count on you to get me drunk! Will definitely be mixing up a shaker of these soon if the drink is as good as your photo. :)

    Nicely lit, although I would centre the glass in the frame more

    Nice overall capture and great idea. Anything with black background and orange/red in the subject is usually fairly interesting to me. The side stuff is neat.

    Great colour against the black background - and I really liked the fading on the shaker.

    This just screams of the urban sophistication and love of booze that are DCist trademarks. I vote for this one.
