If you are like most people, you live for the day of a nice tropical vacation. Maybe you’re lucky enough to have actually gone on one and the memories of that keep some of those tough days from bringing you down. Most of us have some type of trigger in our minds that can immediately transport us back to that day when we’re sitting on the beach. Maybe it’s reliving that moment when you had that delicious passion fruit drink that had your eyes rolling in the back of your head. Now if you only knew how to make passion fruit juice you could relive that memory anytime you want it
Making homemade passion fruit juice is actually a pretty simple procedure. This wonderful, aromatic juice can be in your fridge anytime you want. Whether you are looking to take yourself back to better times or just want a nice refreshing drink, follow these easy steps to make your own passion fruit juice.
Gather three medium-sized passion fruits and cut them in half. You will want to scoop out the insides of the fruit with a spoon and discard. Once you’ve done this, place the fruit in a blender. At this point, take 4 1/2 cups of water and 3 teaspoons of sugar to the fruit and blend.
Once the mixture has been blended to a smooth texture, cut one lemon in half and squeeze the juice of the lemon through a screen or strainer into the blender so that no seeds get into your juice. Run the blender again for a couple of seconds to mix the lemon juice in with the passion fruit mixture.
Your fruit juice is now ready to drink. You can put it in a glass over ice or better yet, add some rum or vodka for a nice tasty alcoholic beverage. If you are really feeling crafty, add some ice directly into the blender along with the alcohol and you’ll have a great frozen tropical drink. Add a bamboo straw in a hurricane glass in your back on the beach at your tropical paradise!
As you can see, with very little effort you can have a tasty beverage they’ll remind you of a more relaxing time in your life. Now when you’re having a bad day at work, you know you’re only a short drive away from being back on vacation even though it’s in the middle of January and you have to go work the next day.
