So instead of dreaming about hot chocolate and mulled wine, I have gone to making cold drinks, yet again. I was out all of yesterday and by the time I got to my last stop, the grocery store, I was pooped and wanted something cold. Strangely I was craving passion fruit juice (I mean who craves passion fruit juice???)..and I dint think twice before picking it up. Came back home, jazzed it up with some fresh basil and lemonade and it was an awesome combo.
Passion fruit juice- 3 cups (any brand, I used Rubicon)
Passion fruit pulp- from two small fruits
Lemonade- 1 1/2 cups
Basil- about 3 tbsp, torn
Ice cubes- as required
Top with the passion fruit juice followed by the lemonade
Throw in the ice cubes, garnish with a basil leaf and serve
Notes: Add some gin or vodka for some extra kick
The passion fruit juice can be really sweet, so dilute it with some water if required.
