Fresh pineapple and passion fruit mojito

Now that we’ve been plunged wholly into Autumn in South Africa, I am both excited because the colder months are my favourite but also yearning a little for those warm, care-free days of Summer. And so, in a desperate attempt to hold onto that feeling, I made this cocktail over the weekend for us to enjoy on a beautiful warm afternoon.

I have always been a fan of mojitos and when we visited Malaysia in 2007 drank the most delicious pineapple, lime and ginger version which just makes me salivate thinking about it. I made a few adjustments to my version and also added some fresh passion fruit which added the most delicious floral flavour to the finished cocktail. For those of you who live in the Northern Hemisphere, bookmark this one! You’ll want to make this more than once this summer and it’s just perfect for your 4th of July parties.

    This looks delicious. However, both my daughter and I have a serious citrus allergy. What can we use in place of of the lemon/lime juice?

      Maryna, you could leave it out entirely. The passionfruit and pineapple both have a nice amount of acidity.
