We never met a cocktail we didn't love at Create

Olympics fever has hit the Create office and we’re all prepping for Saturdays opening ceremony. For anyone looking to make something a little festive to drink while watching this event here is our favourite Brazilian cocktail – the Passion Fruit Batida. Although the Batida has not as famous outside of Brazil to the same extent as other drinks like the Caipirinha we love the taste, especially since it’s made with the national alcoholic drink; Cachaça.
