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.

Coconut Batidas

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.

    I wonder if it would be good heated? I may have to put this on my cocktail list.

    I’m not sure, the condensed milk might caramelize it, depending on how long and hot you heat it?

    Brazilian food is one of our favorites… Batidas is a refreshing beverage. Glad you featured it on your post!
