This is a twist on a classic daiquiri cocktail. The Passion Fruit Daiquiri mixes together the iconic flavour with a fruity twist.
Bring on the cocktails! I love cocktails and I’ve just started making a few more. As I’m getting more confident I thought I would share the ones I have worked on and work time after time. This one definitely counts.
This is a bit of a mash up of drinks as I love daiquiris and passion fruit cocktails so I thought I’d combine them and see how they taste – answer AMAZING. The sharpness of the rum and lime with the fruit are a delicious combination and one that you will love too. I really like my daiquiris sour so I add extra lime juice. If you want them sweeter make the version in the recipe. I’ve added how much lime I used in brackets if you want sour too.
I also love how this cocktail looks. It’s classically elegant and really attracts attention. I love making these for small parties and events. They are quickish to make but you can easily spend all evening making daiquiris and missing the event. Learn from my experience and don’t be the bartender all evening. Unless that is what you want to be.
Passion Fruit Daiquiri
Making the Daiquiri slightly sour for this works really well with the sweetness of the passion fruit. It has a really juicy flavour and is incredibly refreshing. I can’t wait to enjoy it when the warm weather comes back!
A simply delicious drink!
If you like tequila you can make this drink with passion fruit and tequila instead. It’s really delicious. Tequila or rum this is a great drink. I;d suggest starting with the classic and then venturing out from there.
