Passionfruit Gin Spritz

Passionfruit Gin Spritz

The silly season may be well and truly over but that doesn't mean the fun has to stop!

Aussie passionfruit are available year-round and are the perfect natural sweet treat, especially when paired with a spritz.

With just 4 ingredients, this is about to become your new favorite go-to cocktail, no matter the season.

Serves 2

pulp from 2 fresh passionfruit – choose plump and smooth fruit that's heavy for its size in store – it will have more pulp inside!
60 ml gin
200 ml Prosecco
Sparkling water
lemon peel twist, to garnish

Fill two large glasses with ice. Combine passionfruit pulp and gin in a small jug and stir well.
Divide gin mixture between glasses. Pour over Prosecco, top up with sparking water, and garnish with a lemon twist.

For a lighter cocktail, substitute a portion of the Prosecco with extra sparkling water. For a sweeter cocktail, add a teaspoon of honey or sugar syrup to the passionfruit and gin.
If gin is not on hand, you can use another clear spirit of your choice, such as vodka or pisco.
Passionfruit is best kept in a bag in the fridge. They will last up to a month!
