Why make it when you can buy it?

I know, I know, it’s just so easy to pick up a bottle of passionfruit soft drink these days.

Why bother making your own?

Well, I have 5 reasons to make your own:

  1. It’s super simple and quick.
  2. If you have a passionfruit vine that’s producing more than you need it’s a great way to use up 12 passionfruit at once.
  3. You can control your sugar intake by using less cordial when mixing with soda water.
  4. You know exactly what’s in your cordial.
  5. The flavour. The FLAVOUR. Don’t even try to compare it with store-bought stuff.

Have I managed to convince you yet?

Go on, give it a go!
