Cocktail of the month - Andean Passion

Cocktail of the month - Andean Passion

I've made this month's cocktail using Maracuya - a fruit native to Colombia that grows in the Andes mountains. I've combined it with spiced rum, grapefruit liqueur, honey, lime and nutmeg, which all compliment it's sweet passion fruit flavour.

Fruto del espiritu is a UK based company that imports the fruit & sells the juices on the UK market. The money generated helps support the local fruit farmers of the area, creating a sustainable income for them and helping rebuild local communities after decades of war.

Check out fruto.co.uk or grab a bottle from Tesoro café on Leigh Road.

You'll need:

  • 30ml Spiced Rum
  • 20ml Grapefruit Liqueur
  • 50ml Fruto del espiritu Apple & Maracuya Juice
  • A dash of Angostura Bitters
  • The juice of half a lime
  • 25ml Egg White
  • A splash of Honey
  • Garnish - Cinnamon Sugar Rim and ground nutmeg on top

The Method:

  1. Run a lime wedge around the edge of your glass then dip the glass in cinnamon sugar.
  2. Fill your shaker with ice, combine all ingredients and shake hard.
  3. Double strain into your glass and dust with ground nutmeg.
