For most people, alcohol and special occasions go hand-in-hand. Not so much when you’re preggas which I have been for quite a few big events not to mention my 30th Birthday. I’m not really a big drinker even when I’m not pregnant but I do love a cocktail.
Give me something sweet and citrussy and I’m in party drink heaven.
I love a mojito but I have grown very fond of the mock mojito that I have at a place at the coast and somewhere in Brisbane also does a similar thing but with added passionfruit. Can you see where this is going? Yes of course I had to come up with my own version.
Passionfruit is one of my favourite fruits and every year I get excited to see them in the shops but you could use canned passionfruit if needs be. I’m still yet to get a single fruit from my vine so store-bought it is around here.
I think this mocktail is so delicious you won’t miss the alcohol one bit and it sure looks fancy served to guests (or to treat yourself).
You do need a blender to make this but if you don’t have one, you could put the passionfruit in a bowl and mash it with the end of a rolling pin to make a syrup. The sugar is also optional. I made it with and without – it’s best to taste your passionfruit and if it’s a little sour, add the sugar.
Of course my other essential piece of equipment is my SodaStream (scroll down for your chance to win one).
I can’t tell you how easy it is to make sparkling water with one. Well actually I can – you just fill up the bottle with water (I use filtered to make it extra special) insert the bottle into the machine and press the top down to add the sparkle. You can even control the bubble level for those who like an extra fizz.
It works with a gas cylinder that’s attached to the back and each one, (you can swap and go at places like K-mart) makes roughly 60L which means it costs as little as $0.40 a litre for plain sparkling water with no waste and only going to the shops to swap the gas.
How easy is that? You want one now don’t you? Well thanks to SodaStream you could win one. Just follow the instructions below to enter.
What about you? Do you love cocktails? How about mocktails? Have you ever used a SodaStream?
