This passion fruit margarita recipe is quick, refreshing, and simple to make because it uses passion fruit juice. Perfect for sipping all summer!
I've been really enjoying making margaritas these days, so I've amassed quite the collection of fruity margarita recipes on the blog, including my pomegranate margarita, kiwi margarita, mango margarita, and my black cherry margarita.
It's a tough job testing all these drinks out, but someone has to do it. 😉
It's just so easy to experiment with different fruit flavors. Sometimes I use the actual fruit, and other times, like in this recipe, I prefer to use the juice.
I don't know about you, but I can't always count on finding fresh passion fruit at the grocery store, but it is quite easy to find passion fruit juice. I just buy the organic kind in the carton.
This fruity margarita on the rocks recipe comes together in less than 5 minutes.
It's great if you want to try a twist on the classic margarita, while still sticking with flavors that aren't too "out there".
This margarita is sweet enough without being cloying like some summer cocktails are.
How to make a passion fruit margarita with fruit juice
Rim the glass. Add the ice, triple sec, tequila, and lime juice. Top up with passion fruit juice. Garnish with lime.
If you wanted to incorporate actual fresh passion fruit in here, you definitely could. I'd probably add it in addition to the juice so you get that interesting look and texture from the pulp, and it'll also add some extra flavor to the drink.
As always, adjust the strength of the drink to your liking. Less juice and/or more liquor would make the drink stronger if you prefer.
I love sipping margaritas on my patio in the few short months that we have perfect weather here in Canada. 🙂
