How to make a passionfruit mocktail
Follow these quick and easy steps to create this delicious passionfruit mocktail:
- Add the passionfruit pulp, lime juice, elderflower cordial into a carafe or jug.
- Pour in soda water and stir together. Serve over ice with extra lime wedges.
Here are some suggestions for customizing your passionfruit mocktail as we know you like to mix it up a bit:
Alcohol - If you can't resist making this a cocktail, throw in a few measures of vodka, gin or tequila. Whatever you fancy.
Mixer - if you wish to use a flavored soda water go for it, or you can also use a tonic water instead. You can also use coconut water if you like.
Follow these expert tips to ensure you get the best results and flavor in your passionfruit mocktail.
Sieve - place all the pulp from the passionfruit in a small sieve and rub around with a spoon to extract as much juice as you can. Add the seeds back in to the carafe, or you can leave them out if you like.
Pouring - when you are adding the soda water, pour it down the side of the jug to minimize the excess fizz in the jug.
Make ahead - you can definitely make this mocktail ahead of time, just mix the ingredients together without the soda water and store in the fridge until you are ready.
Leftovers - if you don't manage to finish it all, you can store the passionfruit mocktail in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. However, the fizz will go flat after a short time. We'd recommend adding the sparkling water only when you're ready to drink.
You can make drinks with passionfruit, or add it to desserts, serve it on breakfast yogurts or even toss it through a salad dressing. It has the most delicious tangy, perfumed flavor.
Mocktails are safer to drink and better for your body than consuming alcohol. So if you want to lower your consumption during the holidays or are driving, you can have a mocktail instead. Passionfruit mocktails will have a high level of vitamins in them too which is always great for the body.
