negroni tropicale

1 1/2 oz Gin (Bombay Dry)
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Sweet Vermouth (Noilly Prat)
1/2 oz Passion Fruit Syrup
1/2 oz Lime Juice
1 bsp (1/8 oz) Tempus Fugit Crème de Cacao

Shake with ice, strain into a cocktail glass, and garnish with an orange slice.
Two Sundays ago, I had spied an intriguing Negroni variation created by home enthusiast James Hamilton via his Instagram called the Negroni Tropicale. He explained that he "really wanted a Negroni and a Tiki drink at the same time." I found the combination to appear as a mashup of Jamie Boudrea's Novara and the Floridita Daiquiri, so I made the recipe for the evening's libation. Moreover, tropical Negronis have been great before including Ryan Lotz's Amaro di Cocco and my Negroni on Saturn. Here, orange, bitter orange, passion fruit, and grapefruit aromas wafted to the nose. Next, lime and tropical fruit notes on the sip relaxed into gin and grapefruit flavors on the swallow with a chocolate and lime finish.
