Default Suggestions for drinks with passionfruit?

There is a bag of passion fruit in my fridge. I have one drink lined up to try that uses passion fruit juice (The Avenue from one of Ted Haigh's books). I'm guessing that will only account for a couple of them though. There will be a pile left over.

Any drinks to suggest?

I never tried juicing passion fruit before but I hear they don't give a lot of juice, so nothing requiring gallons of juice please. I'm thinking Tiki drinks that contain an ounce of passion fruit juice along with other things. Anyone know of something suitable?

Please forgive the trumpet blowing but passion fruit works particularly well with the Trader Vic Mai Tai - as we've just done with our soon to be launched West Eleven Cocktails

http://www.westelevencocktails.com/p...itai_story.php

I'll be announcing this range to everyone shortly, But the partially completed website tells most of the story...........

Bunnyhugs, maybe you can make a passion fruit syrup if you have so many?
Its not like that drink i made when i found ONE passionfruit, but you have a whole bag..

Paul, this West Eleven Cocktails looks really fresh and creative, and i`m dying to try them! the ideas used to twist the cocktails in combo with fresh ingredients is a winner!

Passionfruit has a wonderfully tropical flavor that goes well with many rums, and other juices. I enjoy it with a bit of pure pomegranate and a touch of cream of coconut, along with a fine white rum or cachaзa.

Ok, I have tried a few passion fruit recipes now.

First I tried some 'classical' 1920s and 1930s drinks based on recipes I found online. These were all sort of 'urban' drinks based on things like gin and bourbon.

http://bunnyhugs.org/2008/03/31/pass...uit-cocktails/

Then I got more creative and made my own passion fruit drinks using pisco and rhum agricole.

http://bunnyhugs.org/2008/04/01/pass...out-the-pisco/

Ed Hamilton suggested a dark rhum agricole, lime and passion fruit drink. I did not write that one up yet, but based on a couple of trials it is also really nice. For me, the special thing about it is the way the aromatic rhum agricole and passion fruit come together.

When I drank this drink in the islands we used rhum agricole blanc not rhum vieux and it was delicious.
