Beating the heatwave with Passionflower - Capitol Square, Sydney

I love icecream all year long, even when it's freezing cold in winter! However, nothing beats cooling off with a nice cold icecream. I tend to gravitate toward the fruity flavours during summer.

Passionflower's new 'ice party' menu

They have new fruity concoctions, all with shaved ice

I wasn't sure what to pick as they all looked pretty good, and they also had some new flavours as well - I spotted pandan, burnt creme caramel and a papaya & lime sorbet, which all sounded great!

From the ice party menu - lime sorbet + shaved ice + bitter lime jelly + kiwi fruit and peach

The lime sorbet was nice and tangy, perfect for cooling down. I liked the fruit and jelly down the bottom but the ice was a bit of a miss for me. It came with a shot of lime syrup, but I thought it was way too much ice and I gave up a quarter of the way through it.
