Prepare to meet your new favourite drink. I first tried this on Christmas day and immediately knew this cocktail was special – the perfect blend of sweet and sour, lightly fizzy and oh boy does it go down easily! Turns out I wasn’t the only one feeling this way and I’ve been inundated with requests for the recipe each time I’ve made it.
It’s super easy to make this a mocktail – just omit the alcohol.
Ingredients (makes 1 jug)
Approx. 300ml Bickford’s Pineapple and Passionfruit Cordial
Approx. ½ cup sugar syrup (purchased or make your own by simmering equal parts water and sugar for 10-15 mins)
Gin or vodka
1.25l chilled soda water
Juice one of the lemons, discarding seeds, and pour into a large jug. Cut the other lemon into thin slices and set aside.
Scoop out the passionfruit flesh and add to lemon juice.
Add approximately 300ml cordial, ¼ cup sugar syrup, a generous splash of gin or vodka and soda water. Adjust ingredients according to taste. Serve with lemon slices and ice. Enjoy!
