Jonathan Deborah Thompson Salted Mint Blog Summer Gin Crush Strawberry Passionfruit recipe

Ingredients:

1tsp honey
8 fresh mint leaves
Half of a lime, quartered
75ml passion fruit juice (from 1 large passionfruit)
75ml coconut water
50ml gin
Sparkling water, to top up
2 sliced strawberries, to garnish

Method:

  1. Begin by making a honey syrup. Bring 250ml of water to the boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat, add the honey and stir until well-mixed. Pour your syrup into a pitcher or a glass or cool.
  2. In a tall glass, muddle the lime and mint leaves with your now-cool syrup – this will sweeten the drink, so adjust the levels to your taste, but 15ml is a good place to start.
  3. Add ice, then the passion fruit juice, coconut water and gin. Gently mix to combine.
  4. Pour sparkling water over the top until the glass is three-quarters full.
  5. Garnish with sliced strawberries and mint.
