45 ml (1½ shot) Cachaca
15 ml (½ shot) mango puree
15ml (½ shot) passion fruit puree
30ml (½ shot) fresh lime juice
5 mint leaves
Pour all the ingredients into the shaker with ice.
Double strain into a martini glass.
Garnish with a quarter slice of passion fruit that is lightly coated with sugar.
Note: The lime juice must be squeezed from fresh lime for best results.
Pauletto included ice into the shaker mix for this cocktail as the ice acts as the natural “muddler” to mash the mint leaves. The shaking (with ice) will bring out a very subtle mint flavour in the cocktail.
