Passionfruit Martini – a refreshing and tangy cocktail for those who adore passion fruit!
You will also love my Passionfruit Caipirinha!
Hey it’s Friday again. I have been working day and night all week (and looks like I will be working most of the weekend as well) so a little break and a lovely cocktail are very much in order.
I truly adore the taste of passion fruit. I love them in baking – passionfruit curd is incredible in tarts (note to self: must make some very soon) – but they are even more suited to cocktails.
This passionfruit martini is elegant and sophisticated and just so, so lovely. I have used fresh passion fruit but you can buy passionfruit purée online to make things easier – especially useful if you plan to serve a few of these babies.
I have made this without the passionfruit liqueur and it is still delicious though it loses some of its punch. Take a look at the recipe card notes for links to these products.
As with all cocktails, make sure you taste before serving – you might need to adjust your drink. Fresh passion fruit juice can be very sour or quite sweet which will affect the overall flavour. If the cocktail is too sweet add a little more lemon juice, if it is too sour you can add more sugar syrup.
Have you made this recipe?
- 3 passion fruit
- 50 ml ( 1.7fl oz) clear pressed apple juice
- 50 ml (1.7fl oz) vodka
- 30 ml (1 fl oz) passionfruit liqueur such as Passoa (see recipe notes)
- 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice or more to taste
- 1/2 tbsp Monin passionfruit syrup optional
- 1/2 tbsp sugar syrup
- 1/2 tbsp liquid egg white optional
- Fill your martini glass with ice.
- Halve the passionfruit. Slice one thin sliver and set aside. Scoop the rest out the flesh / seeds into a small sieve. Press at the pulp with the back of the spoon and extract the juice (into your cocktail shaker).
- Add all the remaining ingredients and fill the shaker with ice. Shake vigorously until frost forms on the outside of the shaker.
- Discard the ice from the martini glass. Strain the cocktail into the glass. Decorate with a fine slice of passionfruit.
- Passionfruit liqueur: try Passoa, Edmond Briottet Fruits de la Passion (Passion Fruit) Liqueur, or Bols Passionfruit liqueur
- Passion fruit purée: I recommend Funkin Pro if you plan to make a large number of cocktails. Note that once opened it needs to be used within 8 days. Monin passion fruit purée is another option with longer self life (needs to be consumed within 4 weeks).
- Monin passion fruit syrup (flavoured sugar syrup)
