Bossa Nova

A nice tropical passion fruit smoothie, the Bossa Nova is one of the more unusual Galliano cocktails. My impression though is that passion fruit is very bitter and sour and needs more than Galliano--in its recent more bitter branding--to balance it out. Add about 1/2 oz. sugar syrup just to keep it on the sweet-ish side.
  • 2 oz. dark rum 
  • 1 1/2 oz. Galliano
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 4 oz. passion fruit juice (add 1/2 oz. simple syrup to sweeten)
Pour all ingredients in a blender with ice. Blend on low for 15 seconds. Pour into a highball glass.
