3⁄4 ? Lime (Cut into pieces)
1⁄2 oz Passion fruit syrup (Or more to taste)
1 bsp Aperol

Muddle passion fruit syrup and limes. Add remaining ingredients and ice, shake and pour (don't strain) into an Old Fashioned glass.


I used passion fruit syrup since it’s far easier to come by than fresh passion fruit. If you’re able to get a hold of fresh passion fruit, add 1/2 a fresh passion fruit to recipe and sub the passion fruit syrup for simple syrup or 3 tsp super fine sugar.

Changed slightly, felt passion fruit syrup is easier to come by and work with.

Hey Scott, thanks for the recipe. Today was an almost summery day in the northwest, so I gave this a shot. I have a bottle of Passoa that doesn't get a lot of use; I used it in place of the syrup and it seemed to work well. I have Leblon cachaca, and I'm not crazy about it.. But your recipe is a great idea and the best use for my Leblon that I have tried so far, though I look forward to trying other brands. I also love the Aperol addition :)

Thanks Christina. You know, funny you mentioned Leblon not being your favorite because that's why I thought of this drink. I find it has a little too much musk and funk to it so I was trying to find a use for it. I usually just go with the daily drinker Cachaca 51. Novo Fogo Silver would make a fine choice as well. Cheers!

I used Pitu, its a nice not too funky cachaca...cut back on the lime a bit, as I wanted it to be a tart undercurrent and not up front. Instead of Passion Fruit syrup I used Goya frozen passionfruit pulp and a 1/2 shot of simple syrup per drink. Tried it with Bittercube Bolivar bitters, not sure with all the other flavors if that made much of a difference.

I love this site...it could inspire me to drink Eight Days a Week, as the Beatles once sang...
