That passion fruit syrup does sound ridiculously easy... well, I ordered 2 cases of TV's, so itll have to go after we go through product. But Im surprised at what you said, as the syrup tastes just like passion fruit, thats why I was amazed, at how close it resembled any passion fruit product or the fruit itself! Ill check out that link you added though.

Too many doubts... Let me see if I can dig up the link...

Here it is: http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/...24762&forum=10


That is interesting, I guess I should have tried the product before it changed! I still think it made a dynamite hurricane! I used the Beachbum's recipe, although we had to tweak it a lot, it called for too much lemon. Perhaps the old TVs syrup used to be bolder and sweeter and thus stood up better to the acid? Instead of juice of two lemons, we use juice of half a lemon.

Ill check the ingredient list tomorrow, next time Im at work.

I just want to agree with this..after failing with my first effort to do the real stuff ( it moulded) i now have a divine orgeat..and will continue to make my own. I also do my syrups but have never tried the grenadine or the passionfruit syrup yet. I have always used Bar Kings Passionfruit syrup and been content but i want to try to make my own AND...
After reading this interesting article in KP, http://www.kaiserpenguin.com/nightmare-on-monin-st/
and reading the 22 responses, i want even more to try Funkin puree. Luckily its available in Stockholm not so far from my work, i just found that out.

Perhaps Ill take Tiare's words of wisdom. I failed at making Orgeat a few months back and I all but gave up. Perhaps I will try again! Of course, Ive got a case of TV's orgeat coming.

Damned if I do...

A recipe, with pictures!

Not for the faint of heart. It's quite a bit of work. But it's amazing when finished.
