History:-

While not everyone will be interested in knowing the background or history of the Mojito drink, many mixologists fans might be.

 

Usually, Mojito is a long drink that contains comparatively less alcohol than other cocktails. It consists of rum, sugar, lime juice, soda water, and spearmint. Though it was trendy and various versions of this drink, including passion fruit mojito, are getting popular, yet there is some dispute about who invented it.

 

One of the theories says that in the 1500s, an associate of English pirate Sir Francis Drake invented the mojito in Havana. Gradually, various versions of this Mojito came after that, but it’s still in doubt who invented Mojito. But whoever did, we have to confess he had given us an excellent drink for our entertainment and refreshment.

How to choose the best passion fruit?

  1. Choose a fruit that is ripe in order to use the fruit immediately. Ripe passion fruit will have purple and wrinkled skins.
  2. You can also buy an unripe version if you would like to use them later. Make sure that you store them properly and let them ripe at the home temperature.
  3. Whenever you purchase, choose the one that has a good weight as the hollow version indicates dryness most of the time. Also, check that the fruit isn’t eaten and is relatively fresh to look at.

 

That’s how you can choose the best passion fruit to make a great cocktail.
