Ingredients

  • 1 fresh passion fruit (optional)
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh or canned pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 2 ounces light rum
  • 2 ounces dark rum
  • 1 ounce orange-flavored liqueur, such as Triple Sec or Cointreau
  • 1 small pineapple, thinly sliced, for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Halve passion fruit crosswise, if using. Press flesh through a sieve set over a small bowl to extract juice; discard solids.

  2. Combine passion fruit, pineapple, orange, and lime juices in a cocktail shaker. Add rums and orange liqueur, and shake well. Fill two 16-ounce highball glasses halfway with crushed ice; strain juice mixture into glasses, dividing evenly. Garnish with a pineapple slice, if desired.
