Mangia Monday: Batida Abaci Cocktail

On a hot summer wedding, everyone will be awaiting a cool refreshing drink at cocktail hour. BevMo 
created this thirst quenching Batida Abaci cocktail to quench your thirst after saying "I do."  The sweet tropical taste of pineapple and a hint of crisp lime juice go great with a little cachaca kick and will keep your guests coming back for refills.  Try it for yourself with the recipe below:

Batida Abaci

2 ounces Leblon Cachaca

3 ounces pineapple juice

½ teaspoon extra fine sugar

½ fresh lime juice

Freshly chopped pineapple and lime for garnish

* For a little extra sweetness, I ran a lime wedge around the rim of the cup and dipped it in sugar.

Directions: In a martini shaker or measuring pitcher, combine the Leblon Cachaca, pineapple juice, lime juice, and sugar. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. If you’re using simple syrup, no stirring is necessary. Pour the mixture into a cup layered with crushed ice, and fresh pineapple and lime.
