Passion Fruit Sour

Peruvian maracuyá, or passion fruit, has a far more intense flavor than its American counterpart. It is larger, with a yellowish skin, and it is full of acid. If only the purple variety is available, feel free to add 1⁄2 or 1 tablespoon of lime juice to balance the flavors of this sexy cocktail.
