My first drink of 2016!! Happy New Year!! I made this syrup on Christmas Eve and took it to a family dinner – it was enjoyed by many! If I’m really honest I’ve been using the leftover syrup to drizzle over cake in the evenings. Naughty naughty … (but it is that time of year…….!)
1/2 tsp tartaric acid
200g passionfruit pulp (fresh or from a jar)
50ml lemon juice
Sparkling water, mint leaves and ice cubes to serve
First make the syrup:
Combine the sugar, tartaric acid and 50ml of water in a small saucepan over a low heat.
Stir until dissolved.
Cool to room temperature then stir in the passionfruit and lemon juice.
For each drink:
Put 2tsp of syrup into a glass over ice.
Top with sparkling water.
Add 2 more tsp of syrup into the top of the glass
Garnish with mint leaves.
