Passion Fruit & Ginger Moscow MuleThis is a gourmet twist on a classic cocktail. A Moscow mule is typically vodka mixed with lime and ginger ale, but this version utilizes homemade fresh root ginger, lime, and passion fruit syrup sweetened with Sola sweetener; a truly memorable cocktail, depending on how many of them you drink of course…

1 cup (240 ml) filtered water
¾ cup (145 g) Sola sweetener
Juice of 3 large limes
3 inches ginger root, peeled and grated

- Make the syrup: place all ingredients into a saucepan and stir well, then place the saucepan over medium-high heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a gentle simmer and continue cooking for 5-10 minutes, pour the syrup into a jug or mixing bowl and cover, and place into the refrigerator to chill for 2 hours (for the ginger to infuse).
- Make the cocktails: Fill 4 large cocktail mugs with ice, divide the passion fruit syrup between the 4 mugs, using a strainer to remove the ginger pulp and passion fruit seeds.
- Add the vodka to each mug and top with sparkling water. Stir gently with a spoon then top with additional ice and garnish with passion fruit pulp. Serve immediately.
