Tropical Passion Fruit Moscow Mules

Tropical Passion Fruit Moscow Mules

A tropical twist on the classic mule cocktail with pineapple vodka and fresh passionfruit. Makes 2 cocktails.

Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes


  • 4 ounces Vodka - Pineapple, coconut or plain.
  • 6 tablespoons fresh passionfruit pulp - about 4-6 passion fruits worth, depending on size (seeds optional)
  • 2 teaspoons Barsmith Mix Lime Syrup ( Or rose's lime or fresh lime juice and a little simple syrup) ( or more to taste)
  • 8 ounces Ginger Beer
  • Ice
  • Mint for garnish


  1. Divide the passion fruit pulp amongst the glasses and pour 1 teaspoon of lime syrup, or juice, into each glass and muddle gently.
  2. Fill glasses with ice. Pebble ice is my fave. I get bags of pebble ice from Sonic.
  3. Add in 2 ounces of vodka in each glass then top with the ginger beer.
  4. Gently stir then add a sprig of mint for garnish. Serve immediately


If you can't find fresh passionfruit you can always add in passionfruit puree, or passion fruit juice. Try to find 100% passionfruit juice or nectar, some blends have other juices and it won't taste the same.

If you go with the fresh lime juice route but still want the drink a little sweet go with a teaspoon or so of lime juice and some simple syrup to taste.

Simple syrup is a 1:1 water to sugar ratio. Boil in a pan until sugar is dissolved, cool and store in a container in refrigerator. Simple syrup lasts a few weeks kept well chilled.

I like using a flavored vodka to up the tropical-ness. You can always used a non-flavored if you like.
