If you spend sometime on a beach in Brazil, you will without a doubt come in contact with some of our batidas, smooth, tropical cocktails made from a mix of fresh fruits and cachaça - distilled spirit produced only in Brazil made from sugarcane juice.
Last night we had a couple of friends over for a happy hour, and as I know my friends like Brazilian drinks and I had some coconut left from the candies I made last week, I made some coconut batidas. I did not use cachaça because I could not find it, so I used vodka, the best substitute for cachaça.
