How to Make a Passion Fruit Mojito

If the classic Mojito cocktail is too tart for your taste, you can look forward to a fruity version. The passion fruit did it for us.

Not only is this cocktail incredibly photogenic, it also tastes fantastic.

With a dash of passion fruit juice, every drink becomes a tropical treat and one thinks directly of summer, sun, beach and sea. The passion fruit Mojito is ideal as an aperitif or for your party.
