    This, although a good quality dark rum sounds like a good match. Plenty of lime juice would cure the sweetness problem.
    Tequila might be a good shout, but again you'd need a good amount of lime juice.

    I tend to go outside, pick fruit and make alcoholic beverages, but I guess you need to go outside and get a life. I already have one.

    You know, I've seen these just the other week for sale and even spotted the name "passion flower" but never twigged that's where the fruit came from!

    They really are stunning and I plan to get some but here in the North East it sounds we'd be lucky to ever see fruit.

    I'm on the South Coast, which helps.

    There is a self fertile edible variety, can't remember it's name but edible should get you there.

    The Old Bengal Bar near Liverpool Street used to serve a spectacularly good gin & passion fruit cocktail called the Gin Spot Sour. They'll still serve it if you ask for it by name, but it wasn't on their revised cocktail menu last time I was there.

    Passion fruit coulis would work very well for providing the sweetness as well as the fruit/flavouring, but you'd have to make sure you have enough sour (in the example above, the lemon juice) to balance it.

    I've been doing some more research. Although the fruit on mine are edible you really need the Passiflora Edulis which has the same size flowers but coloured more white with a dark spot. They are the ones that produce the typical brown wrinkled fruit you see in the shops and are much more difficult to grow outdoors. The blue flowered ones are much more hardy but, the fruit isn't as nice. I will let you know.

    If you search for Big Clive dot com on youtube, you will find he has done some good videos on mixing spirits etc
