Ingredients

  • juice of 8 limes (you want 150ml juice; keep the lime shells), plus 2 limes, cut into wedges
  • 8 large passion fruit, halved and pulp removed (you want 200ml), plus extra halves to serve, if you like
  • 1 stick of lemongrass, bruised and cut into short lengths
  • 1 x 28g pack mint, leaves only
  • 1 x 250ml bottle Monin gomme (pure cane sugar syrup)
  • 300ml white rum
  • 500ml soda water, chilled
  • 500ml ginger ale, chilled

Step by step

Get ahead
Make up to the end of step 1 the day before, then up to the end of step 2 a few hours before serving; keep chilled.
  1. Put the lime juice, the lime shells, the passion fruit pulp, the pieces of lemongrass and about a third of the mint in a jug. 'Muddle' all the ingredients together with the end of a rolling pin, stir in the gomme and rum. Set aside for an hour or so if time allows.
  2. Strain the cocktail mix through a sieve, pushing with the back of a spoon to make sure you get as much pulp and flavour as possible; discard the lime shells, lemongrass, mint and passion fruit seeds.
  3. Put some ice and mint leaves in each of 8 highball glasses, fill each one a third full with the cocktail mix and top up with equal amounts of soda water and ginger ale.
  4. Add a lime wedge to each glass and half a passion fruit if you are feeling fancy.
