^VicZinc, as soon as I manage to obtain a bottle of 151, I'll be mixing one of those. Only one, I imagine. In the meantime, I've been playing with passionfruit puree and the traditional shaken daiquiri proportions. So with many thanks to those who gave advice, this is what I'm currently drinking.

2 oz Cruzan Estate light rum
3/4 oz passionfruit puree
1 tsp of simple syrup
a couple of dashes of bitters

It is rum forward and has enough simple to cut the acidity of the passionfruit without completely obscuring the sourness, and it leaves that wonderful passionfruitiness on your tongue after each sip.

I used Angostura bitters because that's all I have (told you I was new at this), but I think peach might be just marvelous. I've also been seeking Angostura orange bitters only to find out from a helpful salesperson that the distributors in DC only carry regular Angostura. I used La Fe brand puree - if you are looking for something like it, it will be labeled "parcha" or "maracuja." I can't find fresh passionfruits around here, although I'll be all over them when I get back to the tropics. In the meantime, it's hard to beat 14 ounces of puree for $1.29. When the parcha runs out, I've got guanabana to play with.

I also got the Grog Log about a week ago (it was backordered). I have to say, I'm still pondering these cocktails and drinks and all the ingredients involved. I'm going to start with something simple, and since I've got the passionfruit and some Appleton Reserve on hand, it will probably be the hurricane.

Thanks for the encouragement! This is a lot of fun!
