Ingredients
 
 

  • 8-10 passion fruits
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 dash ginger powder
  • 2 limes - juiced
  • 1 cup white rum
  • 2 cups ice - crushed
  • 4 cups soda water
  • 10 mint leaves

Instructions
 

  • Cut passion fruits into halves and scoop out seeds and pulp.
  • Pour the pulp and seeds into a fine metal strainer over top of a mixing bowl.
  • Use a wooden spoon or spatula to push the pulp through the strainer, leaving the seeds behind. This will form a passion fruit purée.

  • Pour the rum, crushed ice and soda water over top and stir gently to combine.
  • Serve immediately in glasses and top with mint leaves and extra passion fruit and ice, if desired.

Notes

If you don't have passion fruits, this also works with 2 mangoes, peeled, pitted and puréed.
