Pour all the ingredients, except the curaçao, into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Trickle the curaçao over the drink for a colourful visual effect. 

The passion fruit is actually a berry that is said to relieve asthma. It is a climbing plant that can grow up to 50 feet tall. The fruit has a dark, brownish purple skin that is smooth when the fruit is fresh. Maracujá, that has a yellow skin, is another species in the passion flower family.

It should leave a lasting impression on your Memorial Day Party guests.
