I hope I haven’t missed the granadilla (passion fruit) season totally by posting this too late. They were in full swing when I made this easy and delicious cordial a couple of weeks ago.

I had never made it before, and it really could not get any simpler. Sipping it poured over loads of ice and topped up with soda water, brought back floods of memories of my youth.

I kept the seeds in the mix, but if they bother you, simply strain them out once it has been made.

Recipe | makes about 750 ml

  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup of passion fruit pulp (about 500g of whole fruit)
  • 2 T lemon juice

Bring all of the ingredients to the boil, then allow it to cool. Pour the cordial into a sterile bottle and serve in a tall glass with loads of ice, soda water and fresh mint.

If you feel like turning it into a cocktail. add a splash or two of vodka.

Happy days.

I adore passion fruit! I lived in Costa Rica for a few months and learned to love it. So good! Thanks for sharing :)

Thanks – I think a splash of vodka is essential :-)

Thanks Brandon, the seasons are all out unfortunately due to opposite hemispheres. Passion fruit is one of those flavours in a drink that really stands on its own. It doesnt need anything else with it, other than perhaps mint.
