Two Friday nights ago, after making the Don's Beach Planter for Mixology Monday, we were still in a slightly tropical mood. When my eyes spied the unopened bottle of Ezequiel Passion Fruit Liquor, I decided to retry the Dee Don. The first time we made the recipe, I had used Passoã but I did not appreciate how the product was rife with artificial colors and flavors. While I am used to liqueurs being artificially colored (i.e.: Campari), the candy-like faux passion fruit flavor irritated me. Therefore, we asked bartender Stephen Shellenberger, and he recommended the Ezequiel brand which is devoid of artificial flavors and colorants.
