Low Sugar Cocktail Recipe
Summer, let’s face it, is a time when most of us are trying to watch our figure. We’ve let ourselves go a little over winter because we cover up so much of our bodies that when spring and summer arrives, we’re usually on a diet! This can prove tricky if you’re throwing a party or BBQ, or even just fancy a drink as you watch the sun set and image yourself on holiday. Well don’t fret, we’ve got a low sugar cocktail recipe just for you! Using just a few ingredients readily available at the supermarket, we’ve kept it simple. Taking inspiration from Madeira, this cocktail is a take on their extremely strong ‘local poison’ Poncha. It’s enough to put hairs on your chest but this version is a lot more drinkable and tasty!
What’s in the Low Sugar Cocktail Recipe?
This low sugar cocktail recipe contains just a few ingredients. The below will allow you to make around 6 tumbler glasses worth;
- 200ml white rum (I used Branca which is a rum made in Madeira, but any white rum will do)
- 300ml cold water
- juice of 1 lemon
- 1 tsp honey
- Seeds of one passion fruit
Overnight, place the rum and passion fruit in a container and allow the seeds to soak up the rum. After they’ve soaked for long enough, add your water, honey and lemon.
Serve with ice and if you’re feeling particularly ‘in the mood’ add a little tropical fruit (a wedge of fresh pinneapple works really well!)
Now put your feet up and pretend you’re listening to the waves of the ocean lapping onto the white gold sand. See, low sugar cocktails aren’t so bad afterall!
