Sake Passion Cocktail

September 24, 2013

Have a night of passion with this tangy, tropical cocktail. Adjust the recipe to your own taste by adding more or less rice syrup.

Serves 4


  • 3 passion fruits
  • 150g strawberries
  • Juice of one orange
  • 400g ice
  • 4 shots Sake
  • 1.5-2tbsp Clearspring Rice Malt Syrup
  • 4 large mint leaves (optional)


  1. Cut the passion fruits in half and scoop the seeds and pulp into a blender. Add the strawberries and orange juice and blend until the strawberries have broken down in to a smooth pulp.
  2. Now strain the mixture through a fine sieve pressing it with a spoon until only the seeds are left in the sieve.
  3. Rinse the blender and put in the ice. Blend until it has the consistency of snow. Add the passion fruit mix back into the blender along with the sake, rice syrup and mint (if using). Blend until all the ingredients are evenly mixed. Taste, and add a little more rice syrup if desired.
