Syrup Spotlight: Tropical Passionfruit Syrup




Passionfruit Exotic and heady, passionfruit's flavor is like no other. It's fresh and tropical tang makes it the perfect ingredient for summer cocktails. Surprisingly, the passionfruit vine is not named to reflect its fruit's luscious flavor. It was named by colonial Spanish missionaries after the passion (or suffering) of Jesus Christ, viewing the five stamen of the flower as a parallel to the five wounds of the crucifixion. The vine is abundant across tropical and subtropical climates and is the national flower of Paraguay. It's most commonly used in desserts like mousses, shave ice, cakes, or ice pops and there is even a passionfruit soda that's popular in South Africa. 

Passionfruit flower and fruitIn our Tropical Passionfruit Syrup, the passionfruit juice comes from Peru and has a high amount of natural fruit acid which we balance with cane sugar for a sweet-sour taste that's bursting with tropical flavor. It naturally has an intense yellow-orange color that makes for cocktails that are beautiful as well as delicious.

Hurricane cocktail on indoor barPassionfruit syrup is probably best known in the U.S.A. as a primary ingredient in the New Orleans classic cocktail, the Hurricane, which was supposedly invented to use up extra cases of rum at the famed bar, Pat O'Brien's. Naturally, Tropical Passionfruit Syrup pairs wonderfully with all types of rum, as well as agave spirits - try it in this Passionfruit Margarita - or with a crisp, dry gin, like in the Tanglin Club
