This past weekend I asked my husband to pick up some passionfruit juice while he was out. I really wanted to make you all a Hurricane cocktail for Fat Tuesday yesterday. What he came home with was a bottle of V-8 Fusion Tangerine Passionfruit Juice. Not exactly what I was looking for. Then it snowed and I didn’t get back out to the store. Needless to say I didn’t make any Hurricanes for Fat Tuesday. But, not to be defeated…I made this delicious Tangerine Passionfruit Rum-tini instead.
This turned out to be one tasty little martini. Not too sweet or too strong. It has a nice fresh, citrusy flavor. A good martini for those of you who prefer your drinks less sweet. And for a more refreshing cocktail, try pouring it into a tall glass filled with ice and topped off with club soda…kind of like a mojito without all the work!
- 1 part white rum
- 2 parts V-8 Fusion Tangerine Passionfruit juice
- ½ lime, juiced
- splash of cherry juice (from the cherry jar)
- Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well, strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with slice of lime and maraschino cherry.
