It is hot hot hot outside and this weather calls for a tropical drink. Perhaps almost as popular as caipirinha in Brazil, the “Batidas” made out of fruit pulp, ice and cachaça are a tradition all over the country. The coconut flavoured one is a classic choice, and it couldn’t be easier to make. Check it out:
