Batida de Maça is a cocktail famously found in Salvador, Brazil during the city's Carnival celebrations. It's main ingredient is cachaça, a clear spirit distilled from sugar cane, and is a cousin to Brazil's most famous cocktail--the caipirinha. In recent years, several international liquor distributors have begun to sell cachaça and cachaça variants around the world, making cocktails such this much easier to prepare.
