This quick and easy passion fruit cordial is delicious in a cocktail or added to soda or water. A splash would liven up your gin and tonic too. Made with 3 ingredients this spells out summer in a glass.

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 a load of ice and topped up with soda water, brought back floods of memories of my youth.

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

  2. Thanks – I think a splash of vodka is essential 🙂

  3. 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.

  4. Such a simple recipe. I love passion fruit!

  5. Wow, a really simple recipe. Will give this a try. I only hope I’ll make it well enough.

  6. This is one gorgeous cocktail!!

  7. Thanks Marla. I just had the last bit yesterday. keeps for weeks.

  8. This is a great idea for making passion fruit cordial, however the sugar is too much.

  9. Hi Debbie, yeah, I think the sugar can be diluted to taste. I use so little in the end product so you can adjust it when you mix the drinks too.

  10. Got an orchard of passion fruit – did not now what to do with it – came across your fabulous recipe – going to try it !!

  11. How long you can keep this in refrigerator.. thanks.

  12. Hi… I haven’t done an extensive test but id say at least a month maybe longer.

  13. HI Sam, we have loads of granadillas in our garden, so cannot wait to make your cordial…..I wonder how long does it keep for??? I make lemon juice ( preservatives: tartaric acid, citric acid and Epsom salts) and that lasts for months!!! Interested to hear from you!!

  14. Hi N – I think it will last for months in the fridge as there is so much sugar. Have you seen my granadilla sorbet recipe? and curd? 2 other really nice recipes using granadilla (on my site in my archives)

    Made this passionfruit cordial and it is delicious, thank you for the recipe….but how long can it be preserved for??? I want to add Citric acid and see if it keeps for ages.

  16. HI Nicole – the cordial will keep for ages and ages (I think 4 – 6 months easily) but I obviously haven’t done an extended shelf life test. How long do you need to keep it for? You could always freeze some of it for an extended period.

  17. Nicole Moore says:

    HI Sam,
    I just need to know it will last out of the fridge (like my lemon juice) as I would like to be able to send it to my grandsons at university!! Thank you….
