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.


A variation is made adding sweet condensed milk or sour cream.


The drink is commonly made with vodka instead of cachaça. The most common fruit used in a Batida are passion fruit and coconut.
