Chiswick’s Spicy Passionfruit Margarita

Makes: 2

When shopping for Agave Nectar last week – a key ingredient for this cocktail – I remarked to the lady at Dan Murphy’s (a big chain of liquor outlets in Australia) that we had reached the stage of lockdown where we were now investing in more complex cocktails.

“You’re pretty late to it” she said, walking me over to a part of the shop which really showed how late to the party we were. Lordy.

Empty shelves.

Nat made this cocktail and it is bloody wonderful. Seconds were definitely a requirement.

It isn’t exactly the cocktail from Chiswick though we are claiming it. It’s damn close.

And as I said. It is bloody wonderful.
