The Passion Fruit Mojito is a tropical twist on the classic Cuban cocktail, the Mojito. This refreshing cocktail is perfect for those who love fruity and tangy flavors. It's a popular choice for summer parties and beach vacations. The addition of passion fruit gives this cocktail a unique and exotic flavor that sets it apart from the traditional Mojito.

How Passion Fruit Mojito Tastes?

The Passion Fruit Mojito is a delightful blend of sweet, sour, and minty flavors. The passion fruit adds a tangy and tropical note, while the lime and mint provide a refreshing and zesty kick. The rum gives it a strong and robust flavor, balanced by the sweetness of the sugar.

Interesting facts about Passion Fruit Mojito

  • The Passion Fruit Mojito is a variation of the classic Mojito, which originated in Cuba.
  • The passion fruit not only adds a unique flavor but also gives the cocktail a vibrant yellow color.
  • Despite its tropical flavor, this cocktail can be enjoyed all year round.


White rum

A base liquor essential for that tropical kick. Opting for 2 oz keeps the alcoholic flavor present but not overpowering in this dance with the passion fruit. Skimp on it, and you might feel underwhelmed; overpour, and you could overshadow the complex fruity profiles at play.

Passion fruit juice

This tangy titan offers the sultry sweet-tart balance. With 3 oz, you get a robust flavor that doesn't drown out the other players. Take it away, and you'll lose the 'passion'. Moreover, you could swap this with mango juice for a different twist.

Fresh lime juice

The 1 oz zing brings harmony to the sweetness, preventing a cloying palate pile-up. Taking out the lime juice might leave you stuck in sugary quicksand. Fancy a change? Try lemon juice for a punchier twist!

These 2 tsp are the sweet whispers rounding off acidic edges. Too little and the tartness may become too shouty; too much and you're sipping syrup. Swap for honey or agave if you prefer a different kind of sweet talk.

Mary Mitkina

Fresh mint leaves

10 fresh leaves to muddle for that cooling sensation and aroma that makes a mojito, well, a mojito! No mint would be like a dance floor without music. Basil could be a fun alternative, playing a whole new flavor tune.

Alex Green

Soda water

Top up as needed to add that effervescent buzz, hydrating and stretching out the flavors. Forgo it, and you land in a dense flavor jungle with no guide. Want a twist? Try sparkling coconut water for a tropical effervescence tweak!

Ice cubes

Ice is integral to keep things chill and casually dilute the mix to the perfect potency as you sip. You could go without, but why drink warm rum in the sultry sun?
