Batida Abacaxí
(Pineapple)

Ingredients

Big chunk of fresh pineapple

(optional)*

2 oz / 6 cl Cachaça

2 oz / 6 cl freshly pressed

pineapple juice

½ oz / 1½ cl freshly squeezed

lime juice

½ oz / 1½ cl sugar syrup

Preparation

• If you're using fresh pineapple,

muddle it in the base of a shaker.

• Add the rest of the ingredients

and shake with ice.

• Strain into a glass with

crushed ice.*

Batidas

• Garnish with a chunk

of pineapple.

or

• Blend all the ingredients and

pour into a glass with

crushed ice.*

• Garnish with a chunk

of pineapple.

Tips

* Whether you add pineapple for

muddling or for blending depends

on you. The blender will give you

a smoother, thicker drink.

Just don't use canned pineapple!

• You can use condensed milk for

Batidas, but if you do, omit the

lime juice and sugar.

Most Cachaça (rum made from fermented sugar cane) is cheap, and

pretty rough on the palate, but when mixed with fresh fruits, it can be

divine. You can have a great time exploring the whole range of Batida

drinks and inventing a few as you go along.

Glass

Collins

Ingredients

1 lime

2 bar spoons of fine sugar

(to taste)

2 oz / 6 cl Cachaça

Preparation

• Cut the lime into 8 cubes.

• Muddle the lime with the sugar,

in the metal part of a shaker.*

• Transfer to a glass.

• Add ice and Cachaça and stir.

• Top off with ice if necessary.

Recommendations

* I can't recommend strongly

enough that you muddle your

lime in the metal part of a shaker.

Doing it straight in the glass is

not a good idea. Believe me, from

personal experience, breaking a

glass while you're holding it in

your hand is more than irritating,

and is a waste of a good lime! And

blood does not make the drink

taste better.

Caipirinha
Glass

Old Fashioned

• I like to use natural brown,

or Turbinado sugar, to give

a richer taste.

• I prefer to keep the lime and add

extra fruit. A mixture of berries, for

example, makes a fantastic drink.

Take a handful of raspberries,

strawberries and blackberries

(and maybe even some ginger)

and muddle them with the

lime, and then add the ice and

Cachaça.

(continued on page 72)

Variations

Caipifrutas – Almost exactly like

the Batidas, you can substitute

nearly any fruit you like for

the lime.

Caipirovska – Substitute vodka

for the Cachaça

Caipirissima – Substitute white

rum for the Cachaça

Batida Maracujá
(Passion fruit)

Ingredients

The pulp of 1 or 2 passion fruit

(depending on size)

2 oz / 6 cl Cachaça

1 oz / 3 cl condensed milk

Dash sugar syrup – to taste

Preparation

• Shake all the ingredients.*

• Strain into a glass with

crushed ice.

Tips

* I would not recommend

blending, as passion fruit is filled

with seeds.

• If you can find good, fresh

passion fruit juice, you may want

to lengthen the cocktail.

• Passion fruit is acidic, so you

may want to add sugar to taste,

but try not to spoil the natural

sourness.

2 oz / 6cl Cachaça

2 oz / 6cl coconut cream

1 oz / 3cl condensed milk

There are no rules when it comes to Batidas, so – anything goes! They

are basically Cachaça with fruit or fruit juice, sweetened with sugar,

or with 'liete condensado,' (condensed milk), if you want a creamy,

milkshake style drink. While not exactly traditional, many people now

use a blender to make their Batidas, particularly if using fresh fruits.

Variations

Batida Morango (strawberry) –

you can add crème de Fraises to

boost the taste.

Batida Carneval

(mango) – blend this one.

Batida Banana

Pineapple and Sweet Pepper –

Blend, and throw in some chili

pepper if you like.

I cannot possibly express how much I have been influenced by the work
of many people. First of all, I believe in keeping an open mind, and I don't
think there has ever been a bartender I worked with that I didn't learn
from – even if it was how not to do something. Among the many names
and faces of which so many are a blur, I would like to thank my good
friends, David Miles, Nala, Richard Elvis, Barrett Young, and Ilan Avitsur,
and Anya for her timely criticism and a whole lot more, as well as two
great teachers, Dick Bradsell and Wayne Collins, and all the team from

Index

Odeon, for some of the very best of times, memories, and lessons in both
bartending and life. But most of all, I owe all of this to my family, Yael,
Romi, Mia and Alma, for putting up with me and my ridiculous hours,
for their patience and support (both generally, but especially during the
writing of this book!), and most of all for making me realize that, however
much I love my job, there's so very much more to life than standing
behind, or sitting at, a bar.
