Bottling the magic of passionfruit pulp with your own passionfruit cordial means you can enjoy that magic tang with a little added fizz!

Mixed with soda water, my little family is  going big-time crazy about Nana Ling’s passionfruit cordial.

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!
