About passion fruit syrup and juice...

The Big Crunch | Feb 13, 201510:28 AM     1

I was wondering if anyone with greater tiki knowledge could help me out. Many recipes, notably Hurricane and Zombie recipes, call for passion fruit juice, passion fruit syrup, or passion fruit nectar. My assumption is that the nectar/syrup is basically condensed and sweetened passion fruit juice. I can't find any nectar/syrup in DC so I'd have to order it, and I do know the BG Reynolds product is supposed to be good. I also don't think I could make any from scratch using real passion fruits since I've rarely seen them anywhere, including Whole Foods and numerous ethnic markets. However, there is a Brazilian market in Wheaton that carries passion fruit juice. So, would it be fair to assume that I could just make a 1:1 simple syrup with passion fruit juice and thus replicate passion fruit nectar/syrup?
