Yield 2 cocktails
There may be no better purpose for a passion fruit than a cocktail. This passion fruit mojito is fragrant and delicious and is best served on a remote island, with waterfalls, flamingos preening on the shore, dolphins frolicking in the shoreline and handsome island people playing ukuleles on the beach. If that is not possible, the drink stands on its own as a little mini-vacay.
1 handful of mint leaves plus 2 sprigs for garnish
2 T turbinado sugar (super fine, regular and brown sugar also work with slightly different results)
2 limes quartered, 1 quarter cut in half and reserved for garnish
Seeds and juice from 2 medium-sized passion fruits or 4 ounces passion fruit puree.
4 ounces silver tequila
Splash mineral water
3/4 ounce Myers's rum
