Borinquen may be the old Spanish name for Puerto Rico, but Plantation rum comes from other Caribbean isles. Passionfruit syrup makes this drink as exotic as it sounds. I used 2 oz. of passion fruit puree and 2 tablespoons of sugar to create the syrup--by bringing it to a quick boil and dissolving the sugar by stirring. This sweetened the passion fruit puree, as it was almost too tart to drink.

I don't have 151-proof rum, but I used Captain Morgan's Parrot Bay Passion Fruit to further bolster the drink and solidify the passion fruit flavor. Here's how it works out.
  • 2 oz. light rum 
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. passion fruit syrup
  • 1 tsp. 151-proof rum (Parrot Bay Passion Fruit used)
Combine all ingredients with cracked ice in a blender. Blend at low for 10 seconds. Pour into a chilled Old Fashioned glass (or tiki!)
