Simple Vanilla Syrup(Batch)
Place sugar, water and vanilla bean in a pot on the stove. Bring to a simmer and whisk for a moment, remove from heat & leave to cool. If using vanilla essence you should add it once the heat is turned off.
In a blender or nutribullet add passionfruit juice, rum and vanilla syrup, top up with ice. Blend until smooth, taste and pour into glass. You may wish to add more sugar or a squeeze of lime juice if you want something that feels less sweet.
To Garnish , cut a passionfruit in half, scrape the seeds and fruit out and onto the top of your cocktail. Make sure you are using a paper or reusable straw and enjoy!
The simple syrup recipe can be used to make a whole range of different flavour enhancers for your cocktails, try adding herbs, chillies, spices such as peppercorns or cardamom, lemon or even some crispy bacon. Add them when you are cooking the syrup and leave to infuse overnight.
