Lilikoi Prosecco Batida – A Cocktail Recipe from Maui

June 20, 2010

Well, the sun is setting quite literally on my trip to the Four Seasons Resort Maui at Wailea. It’s one of the most beautiful resorts I’ve visited in a while.

Even though it was a reporting trip, I tried really hard to relax and found that it wasn’t hard to get into that groove. It felt quite decadent laying under an umbrella by the Fountain Pool or reading a trashy murder mystery in one of the high-end cabañas by the adults-only Serenity Pool.

It wouldn’t be a Hawaiian vacation without tropical drinks. The hotel’s poolside cocktail menu includes a classic Mai Tai, a Lava Flow — basically a piña colada with a dash of strawberry puree — a Blueberry Mojito and a few new creations.

One of the most delicious was a batida — a Brazilian style milk shake with cachaça sugarcane liqueur, sweetened condensed milk and fruit. The variety of batidas is endless, check out this article Cachaça and the Batida for more variations.

I couldn’t resist when I saw this passion fruit — lilikoi in Hawaii — batida that also included the Italian sparkling wine prosecco. A bartender at Ferraro’s was kind enough to share the recipe for the Lilikoi Batida, which could be served for brunch, or for sipping by the pool or as a dessert cocktail on a hot day.

Lilikoi Batida

1-1/2 ounces Leblon Cachaça

2 ounces passion-orange juice

2 ounces sweetened condensed milk

2 ounces Prosecco

organic dendrobium orchid, for garnish

Add the cachaça, passion-orange juice and condensed milk to a blender with a handful of ice cubes. Blend until smooth. Add the prosecco and give it a stir. Pour into a tall glass and garnish with the orchid.

    Hi, I was reading your post and I just wanted to say thank you for putting out such great content. There is so much nonsense on the internet these days its hard to find anything worthwhile. I actually have cooked this recipe before, I got this book last month on recommendation from a friend http://ninjahq.com/go/cookingrecipes and it turned out really nice! I’m extremely eager to try your variation of it though, it looks excellent. I think you might enjoy those recipes, they’re very good. Thanks for the article and tips.
