Jack Frooze

I was wanting a lychee daquiri but couldn’t find any tins of lychees in my pantry. Instead, there was a tin of jack fruit, and I decided to conjure up a cocktail with that instead. The results were quite pleasant.

If you haven’t had jack fruit before, I guess the taste could be described as a cross between mango and pawpaw. Jack fruit is not as strong or sweet in flavour as those, but does have a refreshing taste and beautiful fragrance.

A guy I work with says in India there are a couple of varieties, one of which they use unripe in curries as the ripe fruit is no good for eating. I haven’t had fresh jack fruit but the tinned stuff is pretty good.

The recipe is for two frozen cocktails.

Jack Frooze

  • 2 scoops of ice (up to the level of about 3 cups in the blender jug)
  • 4 pieces of tinned jack fruit
  • 60ml Absolute vanilla vodka
  • 60 ml of syrup from the tin
  • 45 ml passionfruit syrup
  • juice of half a lemon

Put all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into pina colada glasses (or other 250ml cocktail glass).
