May Day Cocktail Recipe

Most frozen cocktails include one fruit or perhaps two, but this one packs in passion fruit, peaches, strawberries, and apples. With freshly grated ginger and your favorite rum to back it all up, it serves up all that flavor in a zingy and spicy way. Clearly, it might take a little time to wash and cut all the fruits, but the end product is well worth the effort.

Fruity slushies full of rum and fruity cocktails are called May Day cocktails. It is a recipe for two, so if you are going to make it, be sure to share it because it is so good. In place of fresh passion fruit (which isn’t always available), you can use juice or puree made with passion fruit. The amount that you need for this recipe should be approximately two ounces.


  • If you like, peel the peaches and ginger after rinsing the fruit. The flesh and seeds of a passion fruit need to be removed.
  • Slice several thin slices of an apple (depending on how big your glass is and how much fruit you use) and then arrange them in a fan shape.
  • Put the apples in lemon juice as soon as you cut them for the garnish.
