Flamin’ Passionfruit Daiquiri

You really don’t need to make your passionfruit daiquiri flame, but why wouldn’t you? Well, safety for a start and yes, that scorched passionfruit can slight impair the flavour, but it’s so cool, so we did it.

This drink is fresh and fruity and a little less tart than the classic, though not as sweet as the strawberry.

Anyway, flaming or otherwise, this is how I make a passionfruit daiquiri…


  • 5oml passionfruit juice (we used Rubicon which is located in the ‘World Food’ aisle at Tesco. Sources tell me they have it in Asda too. Honestly, it’s a bit of a nightmare to find, but worth the hunt
  • 50ml white rum (Bacardi Carta Blanca is a good choice and often on offer)
  • 25ml lime juice (fresh if you can)
  • 25ml 1:1 sugar syrup
  • Ice
  • Half a passionfruit to garnish
  • Wray & Nephew over proof rum for optional FIRE


  • Metal tin or shaker (needs to be metal so you can tell drink is cold enough)
  • Hawthorne strainer if using tins and not a shaker with filter in lid
  • Fine strainer
  • A good shaking action
  • Something that makes fire!
  • Martini glass or coupette to serve


  1. Chuck everything except the garnish in the shaker
  2. Add ice so the shaker is 1/2 – 3/4 full
  3. Shake it like a polaroid picture for about 10 seconds or until icy cold on the outside of the shaker
  4. Hawthorne and fine strain in to your glass of choice
  5. Pour dash of over proof rum in to half a passionfruit
  6. Gentle place passionfruit half on the surface of the cocktail
  7. Light the overproof rum
  8. Marvel at your creation!

Please blow out the flamin’ fruit before consumption if you value your eyebrows.

Would love to see your drinks. Post to Instagram with the hashtag #CocktailJo and I’ll keep my eyes peeled for ’em.
