From Dominican Republic: My New Favorite Caribbean Drink

Passion Fruit

I'm not wild about passion fruit. That is till tonight at 6 at the Sublime Samana Hotel, just outside Las Terrenas in the Dominican Republic. The spirited bartenders at the beach bar surprised us with their special concoction -- a blend of rum and fresh passion-fruit juice served in a piece of the hollowed-out rind (aka my new favorite drink). They created it just for us (they enjoy making signature drinks inspired by the guests), and after throwing back a few, we even got to name it ... Sublime Passion, of course. Is it morning yet? I can smell those passion-fruit pancakes now.
