Strawberry Passion Fruit Boxcar

We made this on a cool winter night, but I think I could see it quite nicely sitting by a pool somewhere in the sun. Unlike a conventional boxcar, we got rid of the egg whites. For those of you playing along at home, I’m going to rate this about a 6 on a lets-get-drunk scale – nothing too crazy, but they have gotten to C’s head a bit, so there’s your warning.

Here we go!


  • 1 or 2 strawberries
  • ice
  • 3 parts strawberry passion fruit juice
  • 1 part gin
  • 1 part sprite
Drinking time: 

Muddle a strawberry in the bottom of a glass.  In a shaker, mix ice, strawberry passion fruit juice and gin.  Poor over strawberries and top with a slash of sprite.

Out to dinner at a local texmex joint a few weeks ago, the waitress suggested we try the new drink on their menu. I figured it couldn’t be bad, so we ordered a round.

This could be a bad idea

I’m going to rate this about a 9 on a lets-get-drunk scale. They catch up with you in a hurry. So be careful.
