Passion Fruit Chilli Margarita

December 30, 2020

Contrary to what you might imagine, Passion Fruit doesn’t allude to the heat of the act of love – even if the chilli in this cocktail may help in this regard – rather, it refers to a deeper act of devotion. When catholic missionaries first came across this strange fruit in 16th century Brazil, they felt that its flowers resembled the five wounds inflicted during the Crucifixion central to the Passion of the Christ – hence the name.

About the Passion Fruit Chilli Margarita

Passion fruits being in season is a perfect excuse to integrate them into a cocktail and having a bit of a thing for Margaritas at the moment, I find their combination of sunshine and heat impossible to resist during these dark winter nights. Throw a bit of Covid into the mix and a bit of alcoholic light relief is more important than ever. 

You can adapt this Margarita to your personal taste:

  • Use passion fruit syrup instead of agave nectar. This will make it a bit smoother.
  • Use Tequila Blanco for a harsher effect.
  • Vary the amount of red chilli.
