Pineapple Passion: Pineapple, Passion Fruit and Ginger Beer Crush

Packed with mouth-watering tropical flavor, this Pineapple, Passion Fruit and Ginger Beer Crush is the perfect substitute for summer.

There is no doubt that this is a bold and fruity mocktail, but the gentle spice of the ginger beer alongside the zing of the fresh lime juice adds an element of complexity.

Consider the sprig of rosemary an essential element of the recipe and not simply a decorative garnish.  Its herbal, evergreen aroma really complements the pineapple and passion fruit flavors layering another dimension of enjoyment to the drink.

Pineapple, Passion Fruit and Ginger Beer Crush FAQ

Can I use canned pineapple juice instead of fresh pineapple juice?
Fresh pineapple juice will give this mocktail a better flavor than canned juice.  The heat used during the canning process reduces the amount of vitamin C found naturally in the pineapple, which means that it doesn’t have the same nutritional value either.  

Can I substitute another fruit juice for passion fruit juice?
Yes, you can substitute the passion fruit juice for another juice, such as mango or orange, but it will change the flavor profile of the mocktail.  The passion fruit provides a tropical tang to the mix that cannot be easily replicated.

Can I use a different type of glass for this mocktail?
Yes.  This recipe calls for a highball glass, but you could use any tall glass.  A Collins glass, double rocks glass, or a mason jar could be good alternatives to accommodate the amount of liquid.

Is the rosemary and lime slice garnish necessary?
No, both garnishes are optional and can be omitted if preferred.  However, I find that the aroma of the rosemary complements the flavors of the mocktail really well and gives more character to the drink.

Can I make this recipe in advance?
It is best to add the ice and ginger beer just before serving to ensure that the mocktail stays fresh and fizzy.  However, you can mix the pineapple, passion fruit and lime juice in advance and keep in the fridge for up to 2 days.

Can I use fresh ginger instead of ginger beer?
Yes, you could use fresh ginger to make a ginger syrup and replace the ginger beer with soda water or lemon soda instead.  However, it will change the taste and texture of the mocktail.

Is this recipe suitable for children?
Yes, this recipe is suitable for children as it does not contain any alcohol.  However, it does have a relatively high sugar content and should be drunk in moderation.

Can I use a blender instead of a fine-mesh sieve to make the passion fruit juice?
It depends.  Using a blender will finely chop all of the passion fruit seeds which will add some texture to the juice.  If you’d like to keep the juice smooth, it is best to use a fine mesh sieve to separate the juice from the seeds and pulp.
