Equipment

  • cocktail shaker
  • daiquiri (or margarita) glasses

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 ounces lime juice freshly squeezed from 1 medium lime
  • 1/2 tablespoon turbinado sugar
  • 4 ounces passion fruit juice
  • 3 ounces white rum
  • 1 ounce Cointreau or triple sec (optional)
  • 1 ripe passion fruit pulp extracted, to garnish (optional)

Instructions

  • In a large cocktail shaker combine the lime juice and turbinado sugar. Swirl the mixture around to dissolve as much of the sugar as possible.
    Add 1 cup (or a generous handful) of ice cubes to the shaker.
  • Add the passion fruit juice, white rum, and Cointreau to the shaker with the ice and lime juice.
    Cap the shaker.
  • Give the shaker a vigorous shake for 30 seconds or until the outside of the shaker frosts over.
  • Scoop out the pulp from half of a fresh passion fruit into a daiquiri glass. Add the other half's pulp to the second glass.
    Divide the classic passion fruit daiquiri equally between the two glasses pouring it over the pulp.
  • Garnish with edible flowers and enjoy responsibly.

Notes

Swaps and Subs:
  • Use white or brown sugar instead of turbinado. You can also replace the sugar with 2 tablespoons (or less) of liquid sweetener like: agave syrup, honey, or simple syrup.
  • Replace the rum with vodka or gin and the Cointreau with sweet vermouth to make a Passion Fruit Martini.
  • Replace the rum with gin to make a Passion Fruit Gimlet.
  • Any tropical fruit juice can replace the passion fruit juice and pulp.
  • Use your favorite citrus juice in place of the fresh lime juice.
