When the air is sultry, simply refresh it with passion fruit juice. Aside from refreshing, the drink is also rich in vitamin C and able to make the body become cooler. Especially after a long journey, the passion fruit juice seems to give a new spirit. In Bali, there are many restaurants serving passion fruit juice, but Warung Sebatu serves it differently fresh. Passion fruit is picked after ordering a drink. Moreover, this restaurant nestled right on a cliff with a beautiful view will make the atmosphere more comfortable to drink. “Of all the beverages we offer, the passion fruit juice is one of the favorites,” said the owner of Warung Sebatu, I Nyoman Arimbawa.
The area of restaurant is indeed filled with passion fruit plants, other than a variety of plants and flowers. The fruit is picked after receiving an order. How to prepare the passion fruit juice? It is picked directly from its garden, and then the fruit is halved. The meat is taken and subsequently put into a container (blender). Add with salt (not sugar) to taste and with a glass of water. The salt serves to eliminate the sour taste. Furthermore, the process is blending the fruit flesh to refine. Then, filter and serve in a glass. The passion fruit juice containing vitamin C is suitable to be taken in the morning, afternoon and evening.
Foreign tourists particularly liked the passion fruit juice. “On Saturdays, Sundays and other holidays, many local and foreign tourists like to order the passion fruit juice,” said Arimbawa while hoping to introduce the Sebatu village as a spiritual tourist center through the enjoyment of passion fruit juice.
