Jaba Joe Spritzer (Jaboticaba)

Updated: Jun 14


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


Ingredients

  • 3 ounces jaboticaba juice

  • 3 ounces lime simple syrup*

  • 2 shots gin

  • 3 ounces Tonic water


Instructions


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).
