Passionfruit iced tea is such a refreshing drink to cool you on a steamy summer day. The exotic passionfruit evokes scenes of a desert island, with palm trees lightly swaying in the cool breeze, while you’re relaxing on the beach with this fragrant and fruity drink in your hand and not a care in the world.
Whip up a jug for a pool party or weekend barbecue and you’ll have delighted guests lining up for another glass. It’s so easy to make and naturally non-alcoholic, so why not make one for the kids and another for adults with a tot of your favourite tipple to twist it up?
