Passion Fruit Mojito

Passion fruit mojito. It's Friday. I've had a few weeks now where I feel like a disgruntled employee waiting for the weekend, waiting for Friday since early Wednesday, and wanting to get a drink. Strike that: wanting to get a mojito, with a lot of ice, spearmint, and passion fruit juice. Don't lie and tell me such an acidic sharp-tasting fruit wasn't born to be blended together with a good rum.
Passion fruit mojitos are extremely popular here in Miami, where, oddly enough, one can't always find passion fruit itself. Fortunately, one can buy frozen pulp: add a little brown sugar, a few leaves of spearmint, Ron de Venezuelan, and TGIF!

¡Cheers!
