Cocktail of the Month: Passionfruit Mocktail

Our owner, Joey, loves a cocktail – that’s both making and drinking them! Whilst we do a great range of alcoholic cocktails, we thought we’d share Joey’s mocktail version of the George Star Martini. With the sweet and subtle flavour of passion fruit and a touch of vibrant colour, the passionfruit mocktail is a wonderfully refreshing summer drink. 

This passionfruit mocktail recipe is quick and easy to create, and doesn’t require much bartending experience. It’s a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage that even youngsters will enjoy on hot days. It’s alcohol-free, low-calorie, and oh-so-pretty.

PREP TIME: 5 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 5 minutes

Ingredients

  • 50ml alcohol-free vodka
  • 50ml passion fruit purée
  • 25ml vanilla syrup
  • 3 lime wedges
  • Ice (lots of)
  • ½ passion fruit to serve
  • 25ml of lemonade.

Equipment

  • Cocktail shaker tin and glass.
  • Jigger.
  • Hand juicer.
  • Cocktail strainer.
  • Chinois.
  • A sharp knife and chopping board.
  • Martini glass to serve.
  • Shot glass to serve.

Method

  1. Add ice to your martini glass to allow it to cool whilst you’re making your cocktail.
  2. Add a scoop of ice to a shaker tin.
  3. Measure the non-alcoholic vodka, purée and syrup using the jig. Pour these all into the shaker tin.
  4. Place the limes into your hand juicer and squeeze them into the shaker. Don’t forget to drop in the squished lime wedges once done.
  5. Place the shaker glass on top of the tin. Ensure it’s on tight.
  6. Vigorously shake the mixture for 5-10 seconds to ensure it mixes well.
  7. Remove the ice from the martini glass then place the chinois on top of it. Place the strainer on top of the cocktail shaker tin then pour the mixture into the martini glass through the chinois.
  8. Cut the passion fruit in half and place it on top of the cocktail so it floats.
  9. Serve with a shot of lemonade or nosecco!

RECIPE TIPS

Shake the cocktail vigorously to get a good mix and froth on top.

Make sure you put the ice in the martini glass first so the drink is well chilled when it’s served.
