Passion Fruit Punch

I had a bunch of fresh passion fruits that I processed with some white rum and Truvia to make "passion fruit-ade" on a camping trip. The rum acted as a preservative - not intended to get drunk. When I got home, I still had a lot left over which stayed in the refrigerator for weeks. So, today, I wanted to use it up. I wanted to use sparkling water, but only had bitter lemon, ginger beer, and tonic water. Ginger beer was too sweet, so I added bitter lemon soda and angostura. OMG. Delicious. Not enough rum to make it terribly strong. You can add more if desired.

Serves:

10 - 15 or so

Prep:

15 Min

Method:

No-Cook or Other

Ingredients

2 c
fresh passion fruit pulp with seeds, blended in a blender
3 c
ginger beer (not ginger ale, but the spicier ginger beer)
3 c
bitter lemon soda
1 1/2 c
white rum (optional)
16 dash(es)
angostura bitters
truvia or simple syrup to taste.

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Blend passion fruit pulp in a blender or with an immersion blender. Add a little water if necessary - just enough to get it to blend. If you're adding the rum, use this instead of water to help it blend.
2
Strain out the crushed seeds if you want to do so. I don't.
3
Mix it all together in a punch bowl with ice.
4
Taste for sweetness and adjust as needed. Some ginger beers are WAAAY too sweet for my taste. Others are balanced. Stir gently if you add a sweetener so not to disturb the carbonation too much.
