- 4 passion fruits
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 dash ginger powder
- 2 limes, juiced
- 1/2 cup white rum
- 1 cup ice, chopped
- 4 cups soda water
- 10 mint leaves
Cut passion fruits in halves and scoop out seeds and pulp.
Pour the pulp and seeds in a fine metal strainer over a mixing bowl.
Use a wooden spoon to push as much of the pulp through the strainer, leaving the broken seed pieces behind, to form a puree.
Combine sugar, passion fruit puree, ginger powder and lime juice in the bottom of a pitcher.
Pour the rum, ice and soda water over top and stir gently to combine.
When ready to serve, divide the mojitos between glasses and top with extra mint leaves and passion fruit.
