Passion Fruit Mojito


With the "heat-wave" making it's way through DC the only thing I've got my mind on these days is an ice cold Mojito. In my opinion it's the most refreshing cocktail on the menu, the mixture of mint and lime is the perfect poolside (or rooftop) companion. This twist on a classic Mojito is in honor of my best friend Arielle; who asks to add Passion Fruit to anything she can think of.

Ingredients:

(1) 1 spoon of white sugar
(2) 2 ounces of white rum (I used Bacardi)
(3) Handful of fresh mint leaves
(4) Whole lemon (half for muddling - half for garnishing)
(5) 1 ounce of Passion Fruit puree (I found mine at Whole Foods)
(6) Splash of club soda
(7) Ice cubs

Bar tools needed:

(1) Tool to muddle
(2) Shaker (mine is no longer available but this is it's replacement)
(3) Shot glass for measuring
(4) Bar glass (I love these Crate & Barrel glasses - they are perfect for Mojitos!)

Recipe:

(1) Muddle (smash) sugar and lime cubes in the bottom of your shaker
(2) Add handful of mint leaves and continue muddling until you can smell mint
(3) Add 2 ounces of rum and ice - shake until mixed well (10 times is good)
(4) Strain into chilled glass
(5) Add 1 ounce of Passion Fruit puree
(6) Add splash of club soda and stir mixture
(7) Garnish with more lime and mint leaves

Happy cocktail-ing!
