I have found a new source for guava, mango or papaya juice. Although there are several brands of guava rum or mango rum sometimes I only want to use a small quantity and mix them with silver or gold rum. I went to my local grocery store and picked up a few cans of Kern's Guava Nectar, Kern's Mango Nectar and Jumex Papaya-Pineapple Nectar. Try them and tell me what you think.

If you want to get more natural flavor than can be provided by any of the "nectars" then you should try the various frozen pulps by Goya. The pulps are ... pulpy, so unless you like the extra fiber (which I do), you might want to strain them after thawing. Nectars have so much other crap in them they taste like preservatives with a hint of fruit.

I use the frozen Passion Fruit pulp to make my own passion fruit syrup but I don't strain it - the tiny bits in the syrup adds an air of 'freshness' to whatever drink I'm making with it. I also make it with ready-prepared natural sugar syrup (cold) and mix them together in equal proportions and add a splash of Wray & Nephew overproof (to retard the nasties), bottle it and store in the fridge along with my honey mix, cinnamon sugar syrup, all-natural simple syrup, pommegranate syrup and orgeat.

If you have access to them, the La Fe brand of frozen pulp is even better than Goya.

I agree 100%. Unfortunately, La Fe's frozen passion fruit pulp was pulled from the stores in my area last year. Strangely, La Fe's other frozen fruit pulps (guava, papaya, etc.) are still available. I think there was a salmonella scare/recall involving frozen passion fruit around the same time the La Fe brand was pulled here, which would explain that.

Thaw, strain if you like, and mix resulting liquid with an equal measure of 1:1 simple syrup. Easy peasy.

very tasty.

i messed up though with the blender and got too much air whipped into it though, making more of a passionfruit foam than a syrup. hopefully some time in the fridge will settle it down.

Yeah, no need to use a blender. Just combine defrosted pulp and simple in a container and shake. Over time, the syrup will separate, but another quick shake will mix it again.

I put my frozen passion fruit pulp in the microwave oven and thaw it quickly for a few seconds and then mix it with sugar syrup.
