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.
- 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
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.
