5 from 6 reviews


  • 1 cup passion fruit pulp, seeds included
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 2 cups water
  • juice of 4 calamansi (or any citrus fruit like lemon)
  • a bunch of fresh basil leaves


  1. Put all ingredients in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
  2. Let it cool into room temperature and transfer into a sterilized bottle. This is going to be your juice concentrate.
  3. To make your PASSION FRUIT AND BASIL CORDIAL, pour 1 cup of passion fruit concentrate into a large pitcher. Put a bunch of basil leaves and bruise the leaves with a wooden spoon to get the flavor out.
  4. Put lots of ice and some water/soda water. Mix well.
  5. Serve immediately.
  6. You can turn this into a cocktail by replacing the water with soda water and adding white rum or vodka.
