How To Make A Simple Passionfruit Martini at Home - Cocktail Series

There’s something about cocktails that make me sublimely happy, other than just the fact that it’s alcoholic, I think it’s also the sense of occasion that comes with drinking them, and in addition the fancy glasses, decoration and more than likely, fabulous company. When I look back to times I’ve had cocktails, I’m reminded of happiness, laughter, friendship and holidays, and you can’t get a combination better than those!

The problem I find with making cocktails at home is the sheer amount of ingredients usually needed to make it like they do in bars and also the equipment. All this fancy sugar and sugar syrup, it’s not stuff we would usually have lying around the house, and it’s not even stuff we can get from our local supermarket which is even more annoying, and don’t get me started on the zillion utensils needed to make something that seems so simple.

As part of my new 'Food and Drink Simplified' series on Blonde Vision, and because we all deserve to be able to make quick and easy cocktails at home, this recipe will only use utensils and ingredients you can buy in your local supermarket and make yourself – without being an expert mixologist.

How to make a passionfruit martini


Passionfruit Martini

Ingredients
Vodka
Passoa – passionfruit liquor
Passionfruit, mango and pineapple juice (bought from Sainsbury)
Tropical fizzy drink (bought from Sainsbury)
1 passionfruit

Instructions
I probably should say before I start that this recipe wasn’t copied from anywhere and doesn’t have any specific measurements as I just made it up… nothing in my life is an exact science so throw it all together and enjoy experimenting!

I used a martini glass for this but I would put bigger measurements in if I was making it in a bigger glass!

Use crushed ice at the bottom if you’d prefer

Put 1 capful of vodka and 1 capful of passoa into a glass

Cut one third of the passionfruit off and put to the side for decoration. Squeeze the juice from the other two thirds into the glass. You can use your hands to ensure no seeds go in, or a sieve

Fill the rest of the glass three quarters full with the fruit juice and top up with the fizzy tropical drink

Use the passionfruit you put to the side to garnish, and enjoy!

Such a simple drink and home and one I literally can’t stop making. Let me know if there’s any other cocktails you’d like to see a simplified recipe of!
