DIY Passion Fruit Cornucopia and Colada

passion fruit article

Wine doesn't have to be just for drinking. Especially fruit flavored wine, like Morad's Danue line. I used their passion fruit variety to make a creamy cocktail and a tropical-inspired dessert in honor of harvest season.

Passion Fruit Cornucopias

In the spirit of Sukkot and Thanksgiving, I created a twist on the classic cream horn, using puff pastry to make cornucopia's. Cornucopia's are literally "horns of plenty", resembling an abundant harvest.  

I used Morad Passion Fruit Wine, a flavorful and affordable drink, to flavor the cream. Passion fruits are full of vitamins A & C, as well as iron, and are both tangy and sweet. The passion fruit flavored custard adds an exotic touch to the traditional french dessert. Get my full recipe for non dairy Passion Fruit Cornucopia here.  

Passion Fruit Colada

Aside from drinking Morad's passion fruit wine straight from a glass or using it to flavor dessert, you can also use it to make a creamy cocktail. I did a riff on the classic pina colada by using the wine in place of rum, making it a little lighter so you can enjoy even more. I added rich coconut milk and crushed pineapple for a fresh and delicious drink. Get my full recipe for Passion Fruit Colada here.

Get your bottles of Morad Fruit Wines at your local wine store, if they don't have it, ask them to order it.  L'chaim.
