There’s not many recipes I can think of that get Mr C singing Club Tropicana and pretending to be George Michael! Safe to say, we are in holiday mode here and counting down the days. Bearing that in mind, my choice for this month’s Secret Recipe Club is definitely holiday inspired.
This Passion Fruit Mojito is the brainchild of Claire from ClaireKCreations. Claire C (formerly Claire K and hence the blog name) has an utterly beautiful blog – clean and fresh exactly how I like them, jam-packed full of appealing dishes. Claire’s blog has made me wish that we actually got to visit our Secret Recipe partners – she hails from Brisbane, Australia which is a part of the world I’ve long had on my Travel WIshlist.
Claire had a love of baking too – I’ve got my eye on making her Coconut & PassionFruit pound cake and also this incredible Chocolate Butterscotch Pavlova!
Now, the Mojito I have pictured is strictly a Mock Mojito – Contains Passion Fruit (mushed up), Lime juice, Sparkling Water and plenty of crushed ice. I couldn’t get hold of any mint but if you can, scrunch up a good few leaves and add. We’ve since had this again and used lemonade by accident – still works!
Shortly after taking the shot though, we experimented and can confirm that adding a slug of gin, makes it taste pretty wonderful too!
