The passion fruit flavor comes from a homemade syrup rather than the bottled versions that are generally available and the difference is discernable. Most prepared passion fruit syrups on the market are too heavy and sweet. The good news is that the passion fruit concentrate we use is readily available by mail order and yields a bright, fresh flavor that's useful for more than this cocktail. I highly recommend it.
Cheers! Have a great weekend.
Shake all ingredients (except the Blackstrap Bitters) in an ice-filled cocktail shaker; strain into a Hurricane glass filled with ice. Add 3 drops Blackstrap Bitters and stir to combine. Garnish with a cherry and an orange slice.
Passion Fruit Syrup:
4 ounces Maguary pure passion fruit concentrate
2 ounces water
3/4 cup sugar
Place all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring just to a boil; stir to dissolve sugar. Remove from heat and set aside to cool. Transfer to a glass bottle and refrigerate.
1 Quart POM Pomegranate Juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 ounces Pomegranate Molasses
2 teaspoons orange flower water
1 ounce vodka (used as a preservative, if you'll be storing the grenadine longer than 1 week)
Simmer POM until reduced by half. Add sugar, stir until dissolved, then add the pomegranate molasses, orange flower water, and vodka (if you're not using all of your grenadine at once).
