Jaboticaba is a fascinating tree grown mainly in Brazil and grows here in Hawaii. Read all about Jaboticaba on our Cocktails page.
The fruit has a thick skin so I enjoy juicing it or making jam with it. Of course given the choice, it will become a drink! Brian enjoys it too added to 7-Up
3 ounces jaboticaba juice
3 ounces lime simple syrup*
2 shots gin
3 ounces Tonic water
Shake the ingredients together and pour over ice in your favorite Tiki glass! It’s a lighter version of the Jaba Joe Martini. Top with a piece frozen Jaboticaba fruit!
*Lime Simple Syrup - mix 1/2 cup of warm water with 1/2 cup of sugar until dissolved. Add ice cubes to cool and make 1 cup of liquid. Add 1/4 cup of fresh lime juice (more or less to taste).
