  • Serves 8 people

  • To serve: ice cubes, lime wedges, mint sprigs and sparkling mineral water
  • Passionfruit cordial
  • 350 ml passionfruit pulp (from about 8 Panama passionfruit)
  • 385 gm (1¾ cups) caster sugar
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) lime juice
  • 2 tsp white vinegar
01   For passionfruit cordial, process pulp in a food processor to separate juice from seeds, then strain through a sieve to yield 250ml liquid (discard seeds). Transfer to a large saucepan over medium-high heat, add sugar, lime juice and 150ml water, stir until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer until syrupy (6-8 minutes). Remove from heat, add vinegar, skim scum from surface, transfer to a sterile bottle, refrigerate until cool. Makes about 500ml. Passionfruit cordial will keep refrigerated for a month.
02   To serve, pour passionfruit cordial to taste into tall glasses filled with ice, squeeze over lime wedges to taste, add mint, top up with mineral water, stir to combine and serve.
