Passion Fruit Caipirinha
If you love the Brazilian national drink—the classic lime Caipirinha—you'll love this passion fruit version. This 3-ingredient passion fruit cocktail, called a Caipirinha de Maracuja in Portuguese, is sweet, tart and perfect for any time of the year. Like any other flavor of caipirinha, just pair this Passion Fruit Caipirinha with churrasco, grilled dishes, friends and fun, and you're all set for a memorable day full of the best tropical vibes. Recipe makes 2 servings, but is easily doubled.
Servings: 2 servings
- 3/4 cup Fresh Passion Fruit Pulp from about 5-6 small (purple) fruits, or 2 large (yellow)
- 1/2 cup Cachaça*
- 2 Tablespoons sugar or more if you prefer it sweeter
Slice the passion fruits in half and scoop out the pulp, seeds and all - you'll want about a 3/4 of a cup of pulp
Add the sugar to a cup and mix in the passion fruit pulp. Stir to dissolve the sugar.
To that, add the cachaça and stir gently to combine - approx. 2 minutes.
Fill 2 cups with ice, and top them with your passion fruit caipirinha!
*If you don't have Cachaça, use the same amount of vodka to make a Caipiroska.
