Procedure

Step 1

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice

Step 2

Pour in vodka, fruit juice, simple syrup and lime juice

Step 3

Slice each passion juice and use a spoon to scoop the seeds into the cocktail shaker

Step 4

Strain the passion fruit martini into two glasses and top off with about 1 oz. of prosecco to add the fizz. This is optional but a cold stony can do the magic as well.

Making the syrup

Combine equal parts of water and sugar in a small pan and heat over medium heat.

Bring to a low simmer and stir until the sugar is dissolved.

Remove from heat and let it cool before using.

Get a wrinklier passion fruit that has a darker purple colour, it is sweeter and will go well with the martini.
