Maracuja Mosquito Cocktail

Exotic ingredients are available almost anywhere these days. Because of this, getting creative with your own cocktail creations is easy and fun. The Maracuja Mosquito, created by Charlotte Voisey, is a great example of how to take a classic cocktail, like the mojito, and add your own twist to make something new.

1 1/2 oz gin

6 - 8 leaves of basil

1/2 oz fresh lime juice

1/2 oz simple syrup

1 1/2 passionfruit juice

1/4 oz Green Chartreuse


shake with ice

strain into a rocks glass filled with ice

garnish with passion fruit seeds and basil leaf

This is fantastic, Charlotte!
Gin and basil is something I’ve really enjoyed lately, especially with Chartreuse like in Le Monstre Vert on Jamie’s show. Love the cocktails you’ve been doing here!

Brilliant!  Have really been enjoying your vidoes of late Charlotte.  Love the way you describe the ingredients that you use, with a touch of history, its flavour profile and how it compliments the drink.  Look forward to more videos.  Thanks. Ian

This IS a good cocktail and I will do this again for sure. I bought a plant of fresh, sweet Basil ,planted it in a planter along with the Mint. Nothing like fresh ingredients !
