Demerara Dry Float

2 12 oz Lime juice
1 t Lemon juice
1 12 oz Passion fruit syrup (see note)
14 oz Simple syrup
1 oz Demerara Rum
14 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo
14 oz Demerara Rum, Lemon Hart 151 (as float)
Shake everything except the 151, strain into a double old fashioned over crushed ice, float 151.
The best way to make passionfruit syrup is to take frozen passionfruit pulp, thaw it, and mix that with an equal amount of 1:1 simple syrup.

It almost seems to me that

It almost seems to me that the 151 and regular Demerara rum amounts should be reversed. I'd use the best Demerara rum you can find, as it's got to stand up to a huge amount of lime juice.
