Step 1

Scoop out passion fruit juice and seeds. Using a sieve, remove the seeds and reserve the juice.

Add sugar to juice and whisk thoroughly until sugar is dissolved. Divide the juice in half.

Step 3

Pour one half of the juice in an ice tray and freeze overnight. These will be the passion fruit ice cubes for the mojito.

Step 4

Cook and reduce the other half of the juice until it reaches a thick texture. Cool completely.

Step 5

Add mint leaves and sugar to a cocktail shaker and use a muddler to gently muddle the ingredients.

Step 6

Add the ice, lime juice, passion fruit syrup and white rum. Shake until cold and frothy. Fill 4 mason jars or cocktail glasses with the passion fruit ice cubes.

Step 7

Evenly divide and pour the passion fruit mojito into the glasses and top each with soda water. Garnish with additional mint. Enjoy!


Notes:

  • The passion fruit syrup and ice cubes can both be made up to 4 days in advance.

This was such a fun recipe and the perfect way to use the fresh mint from my garden. I'll be keeping this passion fruit syrup on deck all summer!
