Everyone loves a refreshing summertime cocktail and this passion fruit whiskey sour is perfect for your next party or an evening hanging out on the porch!
- 2 oz bourbon
- 1 oz ginger liqueur (see above for homemade method)
- 1 1/2 oz passion fruit puree
- 1/2 lime, juiced
- 2 teaspoons simple syrup
- 1 egg white
- crushed ice
- luxardo cherry, for garnish
- In a cocktail shaker: Add bourbon, ginger liqueur, passion fruit, lime, egg white and simple syrup. Place the lid on the top and shake vigorously for 30 seconds. Remove the lid, some ice, replace the lid and shake for another full minute. Fill a rocks glass with crushed ice. Double strain the cocktail into the glass, top with a luxardo cherry on a toothpick.
Above, I have a recipe for ginger liqueur that takes a couple of days to make (it’s worth it!). Otherwise, ginger liqueur can be picked up at a specialty liquor store.
When purchasing a passion fruit puree, look for one as minimally sweetened as possible (10 percent or less). Passion fruit is naturally very tart which helps with the sour aspect of the cocktail.
