The Caipirinha is Brazil's national cocktail made with cachaça, ice, sugar, and lime. It is the drink most commonly associated with cachaça.
If vodka is used instead of cachaça, it is called a caipiroska or caipivodka; if strawberry or some other fruit is used instead of lime, it is usually called a batida or caipifruta.
Batida Type Cocktail Primary alcohol by volume Served On the rocks; poured over ice Standard drinkware Commonly used ingredients Preparation Mix and pour into chilled glass.
Batida is a Brazilian cocktail made with the national alcoholic drink cachaça. In Portuguese, batida means shaken or milkshake (In a different context, the word also means a crash, usually used when referring to a car crash). It is made with cachaça, fruit juice (or coconut milk), and sugar. It can be blended or shaken with ice.
In Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, batidas are traditionally served with the Brazilian national dish, feijoada.
The drink is commonly made with vodka instead of cachaça (which has limited availability outside of Brazil).
The most common fruit used in a Batida are lemon, passion fruit and coconut.
Rabo-de-galo, which means "cock tail" (in Brazilian Portuguese cocktail is called coquetel), is a Brazilian drink made of cachaça and red vermouth. Alternatively, is known as a mixture of "everything you have in the bar" in some places. It is questionable whether the proportions in rabo-de-galo have ever been formally established. Most bartenders will simply "eyeball" the two ingredients, adjusting the proportions to the customer's taste. A quite common version calls for 2/3 of cachaça and 1/3 of vermouth. Rabo-de-galo is usually served straight up in large shot glasses. A popular variation in São Paulo, Brazil substitutes the vermouth with Cynar, an Italian bitter apéritif liqueur flavored with artichoke.
