A fresh, tropical riff on the Martini from the Potato Head Bar.



This is a Beach Club classic – sweet, fruity and undeniably refreshing. If you want to make it on the spot, leave out the citrus husk vodka and use the regular stuff. The same thing goes for the vermouth and sparkling wine – don’t stress if you don’t have any behind the bar.

Tamarillo might be one of the star ingredients, but if you can’t get it near you, you can just replace it with passion fruit.

Here’s the recipe.

Ingredients
50 ml vodka or citrus husk vodka (recipe below)
10 ml sweet vermouth
20 ml lemon juice 10 ml honey


1 fresh passionfruit
1 fresh tamarillo
30 ml sparkling wine or soda water

Method

To make citrus husk vodka
You’ll need 1 bottle of regular vodka and 5 pre-squeezed lemon wedges (save your kitchen leftovers to make it zero-waste). Combine the vodka and lemon wedges in a jar. Allow to infuse for 24 hours at room temperature. Strain, bottle, keep in the fridge.

For the Passionello Martini
Spoon out the passionfruit and peel and cut the tamarillo into small chunks. Combine the fruit in a shaker or empty cookie jar with the honey, lemon juice and vodka. Softly muddle the fruit, then add ice and shake vigorously. Strain it all into a glass (ice or no ice is up to you). Top-up with sparkling wine or soda water, kick back and enjoy.
