Passionfruit Cucumber and Gin Sling

LiquidsParty Planning

With winter drinks parties coming, I wanted to do a few party food inspiration pieces. So the first is this little fruity cocktail with a kick. I love the rich smell of the Gin Mare gin so thats what I used here.

What you'll need
Makes 2

1 inch of Freshly Grated Ginger
4 Springs of Mint
½ Cucumber, diced and peeled
½ Cup of Passionfruit Juice
¼ Cup of Gin (I used Gin Mare)
1 Passionfruit, halved for decoration



  1. Using a potato peeler, make four peels of the half cucumber. Then roll the up to make little cylinders.
  2. With the remaining half of the Cucumber, dice it and add it either to the food processor or a metal bowl.
  3. To this add the Mint and grated Ginger. Then either blitz or smash the mix with a pestle.
  4. To this mix add the Passionfruit Juice and Gin. Stir throughly and then strain into a jug.
  5. Pour into your chosen glass and then top with a halved Passionfruit and the Cucumber cylinders.

    I’d love to know more about the passionfruit juice. Did you halve and scoop out the pulp, strain and get the juice that way or did you buy passionfruit juice from somewhere? I can only seem to find passionfruit pulp in a can here in Australia or an orange and passionfruit juice.
