Lilikoi Lemonade

Serves 8

Prep Time: 2 - 4 hours (chill)

Cook Time: 8 minutes

Making lemonade and sweetened drinks with simple syrups rather than straight up sugar can really change things up. For one, the sugar is already dissolved. Plus when simple sugars are cooked they become a syrup that has slightly deeper flavor than sugar on it’s own. This recipe beautifully incorporates this while adding the tangy and unique flavors of lemon and passion fruit.


  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup lilikoi (passion fruit) pulp and seeds (about 6 lilikoi)
  • Reserved lilikoi seeds from simple syrup
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 5 cups cold water
  • Salt


Combine 1 cup water and sugar in a saucepan and simmer for a couple minutes until the sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low and add the lilikoi pulp; let it steep for 5 minutes and then remove from heat. Cool to room temperature and strain. Reserve the seeds if you are going to use it immediately because they are edible and make a beautiful garnish.

Combine the remaining ingredients, stir, and chill.

NOTE: This recipe is a little on the tart side, so be forewarned. Also, that pinch of salt is the key. It really enlivens the passion fruit while taking some of the edge off the acidity of the lemon juice.
