Prep Time 5 minutes
Total Time 5 minutes
Servings 1 drink


  • 2 ounces passion fruit syrup
  • 1 ounce lime juice
  • 2 ounces Appleton Estate Signature Blend Aged Rum
  • 1 ounce Wray & Nephew White Overproof Rum
  • 1 ounce authentic grenadine (see notes)
  • 1 ounce blood orange juice
  • Dash of Angostura bitters


  • Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake until well-chilled. Strain into a tall glass filled with ice and enjoy!


Homemade Grenadine: You can buy real grenadine at the store or online, or you can make it at home in the same amount of time it takes to make your own simple syrup from scratch. Just combine ¼ cup sugar with 1 cup unsweetened pomegranate juice in a saucepan over medium heat and bring to a boil. Let it reduce for 5 minutes, add a squeeze of lemon juice (about 1 tablespoon), and funnel into a bottle once cooled. It should last you 3-4 weeks in the fridge.
