Mojito’s are loved by pretty much everyone, so, you can be sure that they will be a big hit at your wedding. What we love the most is that Mojito’s can be personalised to pretty much any type of fruit and they will still taste pretty darn amazing! Our fruit of choice this month is the Passion Fruit; a gorgeous summery, zesty fruit. Delicious.
So without further a-due, here is the recipe…
To make one passion fruit Mojito you will need:
- 1½ limes, cut into wedges
- 20 fresh mint leaves
- 1 Whole Passionfruit
- 2½ 2 tbsp light brown sugar
- Handful ice
- 65ml/2½fl oz white rum
- Splash soda water, to taste
- Fresh mint sprig, to garnish
The good thing about Mojito’s is that they can easily be made to cater for hundreds of guests, they aren’t complicated and they make for a delicious, thirst quenching drink.
- Cut open the passion fruit and push through a fine strainer to catch all the juice, press hard against the passion fruit to also catch the pulp. Get as much juice and pulp from the passion fruit as possible. Reserve the seeds. Set the juice aside.
- In a cocktail mixer, muddle the mint and the sugar together to help release the delicious oils from the mint. Add the rum, lime juice, and ice, then shake vigorously.
- Add ice to your glass (preferably a high ball, but not required) add the mixture, including the mint leaves. Top with club soda, to taste and then stir in the passion fruit juice/pulp. Top with mint and passion fruit seeds for garnish. Passion-fruit seeds are completely healthy to eat!
Add to the mix fresh local passion-fruit and you add another zesty element of tropical fruitiness that makes this cocktail even more of a pleasure to sip on. What fruit do you best prefer in a Mojito?
