Majority of the Passionfruit Martinis call for a range of different spirits, liquors and sometimes sparkling wine. Well, we don’t like opening a bunch of bottles to make one drink (does that make us cheapskates?), so our version of an Easy Passionfruit Martini is made with just one type of alcohol – VODKA. We also have a suggestion for a mocktail if you don’t drink or are on a massive health-kick! Read on to see how to make both the cocktail and the mocktail below!

Passionfruit has such a distinctly tropical flavour that it instantly takes you back to relaxing holidays! However, passionfruit is not exactly an easy fruit to enjoy! It has lots of seeds and needs sieving before you can use it in desserts or cocktails. What is more, you will need A LOT of individual passionfruits to get enough pulp for what you need. There’s about 1 tbsp of puree in one passionfruit once the seeds are removed. As a result, we opted for our favourite pre-prepared passionfruit puree that comes directly out of the pouch – Léonce Blanc. It has a sharp sour taste and is perfect to use in sweetened cocktails and desserts (we used it for our Lime & Passionfruit Charlotte Royale)! What is more, it is artificial flavour- and preservative-free.

We make our Easy Passionfruit Martinis with puree, lime juice, sugar syrup, vodka and grape juice. However, if you feel that you need your drink a bit stronger and a bit more special, you can substitute the grape juice with champagne or other sparkling wine and add an extra teaspoon of sugar syrup! Our Easy Passionfruit Martinis are rather tart anyway, so feel free to adjust the sweetness by adding more or less of the sugar syrup.

Now, to make a mocktail… Of course, you can skip the vodka and simply add more grape juice to have a lovely refreshingly fruity drink. But we have recently tried something different – an alcohol-free spirit! We used a zingy and fresh tasting Amplify Non-Alcoholic Spirit that is distilled with a range of botanicals. It’s not something I’d drink neat or on rocks, but used in cocktails or with a mixer, it adds a wonderful alcohol-like taste to your drink, without actually containing any! To make a cocktail, simply substitute the vodka with the same amount of alcohol-free spirit.

You will need a fine sieve and ideally a cocktail shaker, but if you don’t have one and can’t justify buying one, here are a few suggestions: 

  • A thermal coffee mug with a lid tightly screwed on
  • A sturdy mason jar 
  • A smoothie maker glass

Equipment

  • Cocktail Shaker (or see notes for details if you don't have one)
  • Fine Sieve

Ingredients
 
 

For the Sugar Syrup for 4-5 Cock(mock)tails:

  • 30 g caster sugar
  • 30 ml water

For One Passionfruit Martini:

  • 30 ml vodka/ non-alcoholic spirit (see notes above) or 1 shot
  • 30 ml passionfruit purée (we used Léonce Blanc) or 1 shot
  • 30 ml sparkling grape juice (we user Shloer) or 1 shot
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1-2 tbsp sugar syrup
  • 2 ice cubes
  • ½ passionfruit to serve, optional

Instructions
 

To Make Sugar Syrup:

  • Place equal weight amounts of caster sugar and water in a small pan. Heat until sugar completely dissolves. Then take off the heat and leave to cool completely before using.

To Make Passionfruit Martinis:

  • Place ice cubes in a cocktail shaker. Add vodka or non-alcoholic spirit, passionfruit puree, lime juice, sugar syrup and grape juice. Skrew the lid on tightly and shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds (careful, shaking carbonated drinks will create outward pressure).
  • Pour the cock(mock)tail through a fine sieve into a glass. A well-shaken martini should form a white foam on top. Place half a passionfruit in the middle to decorate! Enjoy!

Notes

If you don’t have a cocktail shaker and can’t justify buying one, here are a few suggestions:
