Cocktail O’Clock: Not Your Typical Russian
Vodka isn’t one of my favorite libations but I am partial to anything milky, especially in the fall, so when I stumbled upon the Batidas, a Brazilian version of the White Russian on a recent visit to Station 4 here in DC, I was pleasantly surprised. They were kind enough to share the recipe.
2 parts Cachaca
1 part sweetened condensed milk (throw in a little more and it’ll taste like Christmas)
1.5 parts coconut milk
Mix the cachaca and condensed milk in a shaker, add ice and coconut milk and shake some more. Pour over a strainer into a glass with ice, garnish at will. Serve and enjoy.
