Available at Brass Fish and The Three Brits. This one quickly became a staple at Brass Fish when we opened in February 2020. It found its way onto a few other menus and holds its own in the overall sales of cocktails in the pubs.

• 2 oz silver tequila (preferably Olmeca Altos 100% Agave)

• 0.5 oz simple syrup (1:1)

• 0.5 oz lemon juice

• 1 oz passionfruit purée

• Soda

Fill a Collins glass with ice. Place tequila, simple syrup and juices in a shaker with ice, shake, then strain into the prepared glass. Top with soda. Garnish, if you like, with a mint sprig. Serves 1.

We batch the base for this one in large volumes and keep it chilled and ready to pour. We simply pour 4 oz (120 mL) of the batch into a tall glass, fill with ice and top with soda. The resulting cocktail is tart, fruity (but not too sweet) and effervescent. It is a great one for a hot day or to unwind after a long one.
