Something to try next time
Prepare now, eat later
• Cut a passion fruit in half and scoop the flesh into the serving jug at step 5 for an exotic flavour.
• Prepare the drink and store in the fridge for up to 2 hours, but add the sparkling water and ice cubes just before serving. The slices of lime will prevent the apples discolouring.
