Passionfruit Gimlet

dsc_0100

A few weeks ago I enjoyed this drink while celebrating a friend’s new job at Victor Tangos. I love passionfruit, and this cocktail was fruity and refreshing. I knew more of them would be in my future.

So when I found this recipe online I got really excited, and took a stab at making them at home. I’m sad to report that it’s not the same as the drink I had at the restaurant. This one was more pineapple than passionfruit, but it was still tasty nonetheless.

Passionfruit Gimlet

Ingredients:

  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
  • 1½ teaspoons passionfruit puree (I found a package of this at Fiesta in the freezer section)
  • ½ ounce fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce fresh pineapple juice
  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs, divided

Instructions:

In a cocktail shaker, place passion fruit purée, simple syrup, pineapple juice, lime juice, vodka, one of the thyme sprigs, and crushed ice. Shake the mixture, then double-strain (strain into a fine metal sieve to catch any ice chips) into a martini or coupe glass. Serve garnished with remaining thyme sprig.
