      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      A great drink, mixes well, fun, but again too expensive

      Passoa
      This drink I first discovered about 20 years ago in Tesco, but in Cite Europe Shopping complex, it stood out on the shelf, the glamorous and the slinky black bottle, what mysteries had it got hidden, with the exotic looking label of a tropical sunset, was this a ploy to seduce me into buying this mysterious bottle. Yes I was seduced, and now 20 years later, I have a bottle at Christmas as a treat, as I find that the prices have changed dramatically over the years, considering I was paying about £5 when I first brought it, to the price of about £15 now.

      The Flavour.
      I was seduced by the bottle but would the flavour hold up, as it was a passion fruit flavoured liqueur, as first I tried the drink neat, I will admit that I did find it unusual being pink, as it is a bright pink, it is a sweet drink, yet still light and refreshing. It has an alcohol content of 17%.

      =Suggestions=
      On the reverse of the bottle, the label explains a bit about the drink, but it also gives you suggestions that you can mix the drink with including orange juice, pineapple juice and cranberry to name a few.

      Orange Juice - I found this to be too sweet of a mix, with the sweetness of the passion fruit, and the orange it reminded me of a cough medicine that you had as a child when your mum always use to say its tastes nice.

      Pineapple Juice - I found this to be really nice, as the bitter/sweet of the pineapple was a perfect contrast to the Passoa and I would recommend this with some ice.

      Cranberry Juice - I can't comment on this as I only drink cranberry juice when I have an irritation of the bladder, and don't think excess alcohol would help.

      Cola - I have mixed passoa with coke and I found it a really good combination, as the contrast of the fizzy and sharpness of the coke, a perfect combination

      Dr Pepper - This may sound weird but this is an amazing combination, the mix of flavours just come alive in the glass.

      This drink is not just for Christmas, and would be ideal for a party or a gift, but one thing thou it does not really taste like alcohol and slips down very well.

      70cl Bottle - Most Supermarkets - Around £15 a Bottle.

      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Delicious passion fruit drink

      Passoa is one of my favourite drinks to have although it is something that I don't tend to have very often when I do I always think how nice it is and how different it is to everything else that is out there.

      It is a passion fruit base liquor and it is one of the few drinks that I have ever tasted that gets the combination of alcohol and fruit juices right as they are in perfect harmony with each other. The drink is sweet but not overly so and it doesn't make me feel sick after only a couple of glasses.

      The taste of passion fruit is quite strong and it doesn't taste as artificial as some such as those that are in some alcopops. The taste of passion fruit is quite unusual and this tastes more like a cocktail to me than a liquor.

      It is really fruity and refreshing and is the perfect summer drink and it is one that I enjoy drinking and always reminds me of being somewhere tropical when I have it. This is to do with the taste obviously but also because of the colour of the drink which is a lovely pinky orange and also the smell which is tropical and fruity.

      It is quite a dangerous drink to have when I am out but only because it is so nice and you really can't taste the alcohol that I can end up drinking more of these than I intended.

      My favourite way to drink this is with lemonade but it can also be mixed with fruit juice and even coke and it is one of those drinks that goes well with loads of different combinations. I probably wouldn't drink it straight as then it can be ever so slightly bitter but mixed with lemonade it is lovely and sweet but refreshing.

      Passoa makes a great base for making cocktails at home and you can easily make loads of different cocktails using this that taste just as good as they do in a bar.
      The alcohol content is 17% and a bottle of Passoa should cost you around about £11 which I think is a really good price for something so tasty.

        Advantages

        Disadvantages

        A delicious fruity liqueur that makes scrumptious cocktails

        There are very few alcoholic drinks that I would drink purely for enjoyment at home as I don't actually like the taste of alcohol. With the exception of Baileys and a few types of wine, I leave my alcohol consumption for a night out with the girls. That was of course, until I tried Passoa.

        About the drink
        This is a relatively new drink in the greater scheme of things having only been around for about twenty years. It is quickly gaining in popularity however and it is already Puerto Rico's number one liqueur and it has a really party, or should I say fiesta, feel about it. The drink is a liqueur made from the scrumptious and juicy passion fruit and it is a drink that is best suited for the summer. It is perfect in cocktails and if you google 'Passoa Cocktails' the recipes that you can find are endless. The Passoa website also has plenty of mouth watering cocktail ideas too. Most of them simply involve mixing Passoa with different types of fruit juice. It is quite a strong drink and it has an alcohol percentage of 17%.

        Packaging and Price
        The drink is packaged in an attractive way. It comes in a jet black heavy glass bottle which has a vibrant picture on the front of some palms trees which are coloured in orange/red and yellow. Passoa is written in bright yellow writing across the black bottle and it is really eye catching and interesting. The cost of the drink will vary greatly but as a guideline, it will cost you around £10 for 70cl. It is available from plenty of supermarkets and it can also be bought from a range of online websites.

        Other varieties
        The Passion fruit Passoa is the original flavour and the main drink which you are likely to get if you were to order it in a bar. There are other varieties available however which include Mango, Pineapple, Coconut and Melon. I would really like to give them a try but not the melon one as I think you would be able to taste the alcohol in it as melon doesn't have much of a taste.

        Appearance and Taste
        Another thing which makes this a lovely summer drink is the colour. It is a pinky orange colour which looks beautiful in a glass and makes it a little bit different from the other drinks. It smells completely delicious and it has a real fruity kick to it with a splash of sugary sweetness. I've never tried it on it's own because it's too strong to be able to drink it straight but not strong enough to be a shot so I drink it with a mixer.

        I have tried it with a whole host of mixers including Lemonade, Orange Juice, Pineapple Juice, Mango Juice and I've even tried throwing in some Passion Fruit Juice. I've made cocktails using it and thrown in real pieces of fruit too which went down a treat at a house party that I had. Whatever you put in with it, the drink tastes completely delicious. You may find that it's a little sugary and sweet for you if you haven't got a sweet tooth and I have noticed that it's mostly girls that enjoy the drink.

        Despite the fairly high alcohol percentage, you can't actually taste the alcohol which means you need to watch how much of it you are consuming as it's really easy to drink. It will make you tipsy if you drink too much and it may get too sickly for some after a while but I'm fine with it and it has never given me a hangover. Obviously as this drink contains alcohol, you need to be over 18 in order to consume it and it should be drunk responsibly.

        Conclusion
        All in all, this drink looks good, tastes good and smells good so it really appeals to the senses. You can't taste the alcohol and it is a really fruity drink. It's best served with a mixer in a cocktail and it goes well with most juices. It is a really summery drink but if you can't wait until then you can drink it while reminiscing about summers from the past.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great cocktail base - Passoa!

          ~ Passoa ~

          When it comes to alcohol I am quite fussy, I cannot drink can after can of lager and vodka and coke can get a bit boring, my favourite drink has to be Malibu but I fancied a change and bought this about 2 years ago as a fruity alternative. I was browsing the drink in Asda and this stood out on the shelves of all the other liqueurs and spirits due to it's funky and cool looking black glass bottle.
          The bottle is predominately black with a yellow, orange and red logo. The drink does look very summery and tropical.
          The logo is of a nice tropical scene which sums the drink up perfectly.

          Passoa is a passion fruit flavoured drink that works great as a mixer in cocktails or even with lemonade.

          The liquid inside the bottle is a reddy colour that has a strong fruity scent.

          My chosen way of drinking it is with pineapple juice and lemonade. I pour a small measure of Passoa into a long glass (filled with ice) and then add half and half of the juice and lemonade, the end result is a stunning peachy coloured liquid with a gorgeous fruity scent and taste.

          This drink just goes down way to easy as it has such a smooth taste. It can however become a little sickly after drinking a few!

          You get a 700ml bottle and the cost is around £12. It comes in with a 17% alcohol vol.

          You can mix it in many ways, you can also drink it Jagerbomb style, using a shot of Passoa and a glass of lager!
          If you fancy a change to your usual tipple I would recommend this as it makes a great base for many cocktails, you can mix it with lots of different juices/pops/alcohol to make your perfect cocktail.

          From checking the Passoa website I have also found that it is also available in a Mango version but I have yet to see this available anywhere.

          Thanks for reading :o) x

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          very exotic!

          I first came across Passoa in Portugal and instantly fell in love with the drink. Passoa originates from Brazil and was used in a lot of the cocktails that I was drinking abroad. I loved the fantastic fruity taste and when I came back to England I decided to buy a bottle. I struggled to find it in a lot of supermarkets but I managed to find it in Asda for £10 for a 70cl bottle. Like most spirits it's a bit pricey, but definitely worth it. Passoa has a 17% which is quite low for a spirit. It is very easy to drink and l do find myself drinking a lot of it and forgetting that it does have alcohol in it.

          The bottle looks fantastic. It's a black bottle with a sunset which looks exotic and classy. The wiriting is in red which stands out against the black background and looks great. It is a screw top, glass bottle and has a nice shape to it too.

          Passoa is a drink that lots of people drink neat because it doesn't have a harsh alcohol taste to it. I prefer to drink it with lemonade or fruit juices such as cranberrry or pineapple as I'm not a fan of doing shots. It's a passion fruit flavour and tastes extremely fruity and refreshing. It is a light pink colour and smells very sweet and fruity. It tastes like exotic fruits such as mango, passion fruit and orange.

          One of my favourite Passoa cocktails that I found on the passoa website is Passoa rum-bon. It is 3/10 passoa, 2/10 rum and 5/10 orange juice and it tastes amazing!

          Passoa is definitely a great summer drink and is a great drink to add to fruity cocktails.

          Disadvantages

          great for a summer bevvie. and wont break the bank.

          Passoa Passion fruit liquor, what can I say, summer in a glass?? Well I think so. Was given a bottle of this in the summer and it was the first time I had ever seen it. I can say for sure though that I saw an awful lot more of it over the summer. Makes a great little summer cocktail when added to pineapple juice and raspberry vodka, maybe add a bit of lemonade as well just to add the fizz that makes it even more refreshing on a hot day.

          A great drink to have in your alcohol cupboard (if you have one) or just in your selection of drinks. Is always available at a reasonable price of around £10.00 a bottle and for this amount I think everyone should have a bottle, even if you only have it for the summer. Perfect if you have a sweet tooth and like a cheeky drink. And good for a barbeque when you want to provide everybody with a nice drink but don't want to spend a fortune to be able to do so.

          The only downside to this beverage is that if you leave the bottle for a little while without opening then it can get tricky to reopen due to the high sugar content crystallising around the lid, but to be fair our bottle only ever usually lasts for a few weeks, it does however get ignored In the winter so if you don't finish it in the summer you probably won't go back to it until the next year.

          I recently found out about Passoa at a friends house warming party. Im normally one for drinking sweet alcoholic drinks, things like malibu, southern comfort, WKD's etc... so I wasn't sure how I'd like Passion Fruit Liqueur?I've gotta say though its really tasty! Very sweet, especially good with a little lemonade - tastes more like a cocktail then! Lovely with a slice of pineapple on the side of the glass too! Tastes nicely tropical however is a little strong for me when drank neat but leaves a lovely after taste. Not a bad price as well, I bought a bottle in a local big supermarket for £9.40 so in comparison to other sweet liqueurs its good value too!

          =-

          One of the presents I got for Christmas this year was a bottle of Passoa from my brother . I'd seen the glamourous dark black bottle with it's tropical sunset motif in my local supermarket many times, but I'm a bit wary of trying new spirits - they are so pricey for a bottle, and I'm loathe to spend the money in case I don't like them. However, I'm always delighted to recieve something new to try as a gift .

          The bottle is pretty glamourous and exotic looking - it's snart and attractive, and not something you'd be embarrassed to have amongst your booze selection . On the back ofthe bottle are a few suggestions of ways to drink it - mixed with cranberry or pineapple juice, for example.

          Naturally, my first sip was neat - and I was very surprised by how drinkable this passionfruit flavoured liqeuer was just on it's own . An attractive pink when poured out, it is lovely and light, fruity and refreshing, and slips down the throat with ease, despite a respectable strength of 17 percent. It has none of that horrid strong burn in the throat, although it does bring a pleasant warmth to the cheeks .

          Next, I decided to mix it with a little juice - despite it being incredibly pleasant to drink alone, I know that I can't handle too many neat spirits, especially when I have to get up for work the next day. I mixed it with apple juice, as per one of the suggestions on the rear of the bottle, and added a little ice for a refreshing long drink , and again, the flavour was wonderful, with the sweet passionfruit flavour really working well with the apple .

          I decided to stop there - delicious and easy to drink as it is, I could feel myself sliding towards tipsy after two drinks . However, I really do like this, and I'm happy that there is a respectable amount left still in the bottle, as I plan to contribute it towards a new year get together .Light, smooth, fruity and delicious, I think this is an excellent drink to add to your collection of spirits, especially if you are a fan of gentle flavours. 5 stars.

            An exotic liquor perfect for making cocktails with

            If you are looking for a summery drink to transfer your mind to a tropical island then this is the one!

            ***What is Passoa?***

            Passoa is an exotic liqueur from France. Passoa's different flavours originate from various exotic fruits in Brazil. Passion fruit is the brands most famous flavour of Passoa.

            However it comes in a few other different flavours including:

            - Coco (coconut)
            - Mango
            - Anãnas (pineapple)

            ***Packaging***

            It comes in a 70cl black bottle. It has different coloured fonts in yellow, red and orange for its name. The front states 'Passoa, the passion drink.' So it looks very tropical. However the black bottle is rather annoying because you can never see how much Passoa is left in the bottle which is very important when you are drunk or on the way to being drunk!

            Once poured into a glass it looks like cranberry juice and it smells very tropical but more like blackcurrent than passion fruit.

            ***Price***

            The only place I have found to stock it other than the internet is Asda. It costs £9.00 which I think is very reasonable for such a big bottle. However Asda only stocks the Passion fruit Passoa, none of the other flavours. I would love to try the pineapple one since this would make the most perfect pina colada with Malibu - so it would be extra alcoholic!

            ***How I found out about it***

            I was introduced to this Passion fruit Passoa at university in Freshers week. One of the guys that I used to pre drink with before going out always had a bottle of this with him. I was intrigued one night and asked if I could try some. To my surprise it tasted like very strong, sweet black current juice. I got quite drunk quite quickly on it though since it is 17% and I am a bit of a lightweight. I mixed it with lemonade. It is a drink that can be mixed with almost anything. It is lovely with pineapple juice, orange juice or cranberry juice. So it is the perfect ingredient in which to make a very nice alcoholic cocktail with. But it can also be drunk by itself but I found it too sweet and sickly this way. I also found drinking it neat that I got a slight aftertaste as if you are drinking neat vodka or sambuca with that slight burning on your throat. So I would recommend drinking it in a cocktail more.

            When I went out that night I could see a bottle of it behind the bar so I asked for a shot of it. But apparently I always pronounce it wrong. Passoà has an accent on the a so you pronounce it Pass-oh-a. But when I asked for it the guy didn't understand the drink I meant so I had to point it out to him. He then commented saying he had never heard of or served this drink before. So it seems that Passoà does exist in bars but because it is not terribly well known people are not introduced to it which is a real shame because it is now my favourite going out drink.

            ***Verdict***

            Well I have three bottles of this in my cupboard and one bottle in the fridge which suggests that I think it is a rather excellent exotic liquor... but I will just let you know that I am not an alcoholic which it sounds like! I drink this perhaps once a week or less depending on which nights I am going out.

            Try Passoà if you want to be whisked away to a drunken state in a hot Caribbean island! Heaven!!

              Advantages

              Disadvantages

              A luscious, fruity and tropical liqueur, ideal for cocktails and punches for a summery drink!

              If you often find yourself daydreaming that you're lying, sunkissed, on tropical white sandy beaches, palm trees all around and warmed through by equatorial heat, then Passoa may soon become a drink of choice for you!

              Passoa is a gorgeous passion fruit liqueur, which can be drunk neat or with a mixer. It is produced in France and is pretty popular on the Continent - particularly in Spain and Belgium (as well as further afield - apparently it is the number one liqueur of choice in Puerto Rico!).

              Although there Passoa passion fruit is the main or leading variety of Passoa, there are also coconut, pineapple and mango flavours (although these are even harder to find in the UK than the main mango flavour unfortunately.

              I discovered this lovely drink as a student in NE England (which begs the question how a drink so popular with students in far flung areas of the country cannot be found elsewhere!).

              ~*~* Where to buy Passoa and price *~*~

              Unfortunately, Passoa is pretty hard to come by on UK shores in most of the major supermarkets. It is more popular in Holland and Spain, and as such you might be able to pick up a bottle or two (or ask a generous friend visiting there!) for your return.

              Some larger Asda and Tesco stores stock Passoa, however I have not seen it available in Sainsburys or Morrisons. Passoa is also available in many specialist, online drinks stores (such as The Drink Shop (www.thedrinkshop.co.uk) or The Whiskey Exchange.

              A 70cl bottle of Passoa will set you back around £12-£15 when ordered from one of these UK-based online stores, so it is comparable to UK prices for a decent premium vodka and maybe even a little less than usual high-street prices for liqueurs.

              ~*~* Packaging *~*~

              Passoa is sold in a funky matte black glass bottle which has a sleek design. The design on the front of the bottle is amazing, with a bright red-orange-yellow neon palm tree image and striking 'Passoa' name. The shape of the bottle is slightly angular and squared compared to a wine bottle (like a slightly taller, squarer and wider Advocaat or Gordon's gin bottle).

              ~*~* Flavour and smell *~*~

              Passoa has the most beautiful, tropical sweet scent of mango and passion-fruit encapsulated in the golden orange liquid. This makes a pleasant and mouth-watering change from some of the boring, plain alcohol smell of other spirits (like scentless vodka or gin).

              If you thought the scent sounds lovely - the flavour is even better! Rich in passion fruit fruity flavours, this liqueur is unbelievably sweet but smooth. When drinking neat, I find this liqueur to be a bit too much (even for me, with an incredible sweet tooth!) and has me reaching for water to wash it down!

              If you like sweeter, fruiter spirits (such as Malibu or Archers) then you would probably like Passoa as it has a similar flavour theme and can be drunk with the same mixers.

              Passoa, in my opinion, is best drunk when complimented with either lemonade (for a bit of fizz) or - my personal favourite - with rich, good quality pineapple juice. Passoa has 17% alcohol content, so isn't a hugely strong spirit, and as such you will probably find you need more of it to give the same alcoholic bite and flavour when compared with other spirits (such as vodka or gin). Because of this (and this is a massive warning!) - it is very easy to get drunk on Passoa as the alcoholic flavour disappears in fruit juice and you may find yourself knocking it back quite of the stuff!

              Passoa can also be used in cocktails or punches (particularly those with a fruit base) or even in a tropical variant of a mojito or bellini! There are loads of ideas on the Passoa website (www.passoa.com) to inspire.

              ~*~* The verdict *~*~

              I love Passoa - I think it's a gorgeous, unusual and summery drink - perfect for punches and summer evenings. It is very sweet and has a luscious fruity flavour which I think lends itself to being more of a girly drink, but a good basis for cocktails. Because of this sweet flavour, it may be quite cloying for some (especially when drunk neat). If you do drink it (either neat or with a mixer) - be very careful of forgetting the alcohol content behind the sweet flavour as you will be sloshed before you know it!

              It's a massive shame that it is not more widely available on supermarket shelves but it can be found widely in larger Tesco/Asda stores and on online drinks supplier websites for a reasonable price. I would really recommend this drink, especially for the summer (or a reminder of sunnier, tropical days on colder evenings!).

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                I've taken one star off as I don't know where I can buy it from in the UK

                I first tried Passoa about 5yrs ago and I have to say that it is the most scrummy alcoholic drink I have ever had, which is why it surprises me that it is not a well-known alcohol in the UK. From the moment I took my first sip, I was hooked.

                However, after looking around every shop in my area that sells alcohol I couldn't find it anywhere. I had arranged to go on a trip to Belgium about 4yrs ago and thought I would have a look there for it, and low-and-behold, there it was sitting on the shelf staring at me! I hardly ever go out so thought I would buy 2 one litre bottle to keep me going. By the time I went to Belgium again the next year, they had run out and I had to buy another 2 bottles! Now, every time I go I always make sure I buy some!

                Passoa originates from Brazil, but is now made in France, and is sold in a matt black bottle which makes it stand out on the shelves, and has a screw top lid so is easy to store if you have had enough for one night! It is 17% in volume.

                I have the Passion Fruits version of Passoa but it is also available in Coco (coconut), Ananas (pineapple) and Mango.

                The minute you open the bottle you are hit with the smell of passion fruits (obviously coz thats the flavour of the drink!). When I'm drinking alcohol I always like to drink the drinks where the alcohol is not too overwhelming, and this drink certainly has the right amount of non-alcoholic flavour, in fact it reminds me a lot of Fanta Fruit Twist. Be careful though, because as it doesn't taste very alcoholic, you can soon go through half a bottle without realising!

                I drink the Passion Fruits Passoa with lemonade, and when its mixed with lemonade it tastes a LOT like Fanta Fruit Twist, so if you're a fan of this non-alcoholi drink then Passoa should be on your 'To try' list!

                Passoa can also be used as the main ingredient of a cocktail, some of the best cocktails are shown on the Passoa website www.passoa.com. I have only recently found this website, so I intend to try the different cocktail recipes they have got on there, for a more 'exotic' drink!

                I still don't know where you can buy this from in the UK, but if anybody knows, it would be great to find out so I don't have to rely on trips to Belgium!

                Overall, a lovely-tasting, sweet, exotic alcoholic drink that will be on my drinking list for years to come!

                  Advantages

                  Disadvantages

                  Buy some for a party and make punch or big cocktail jugs it will go down a storm!

                  I tried this for the first time the other week. Me and my girlfriends had organised an Ann Summers party and I was in charge of getting the alcohol so I went to Asda's and bought this drink called Passoa.

                  I was very enticed by the Black mysterious looking bottle and the tropical looking. It was only £10.07, and on the back it had 3 different recipies to try which I thought was great considering I had never had any before and therefore I wouldn't know how to serve it. It is 17% alcohol which is not too weak but not to strong, it makes it weak enough to be able to drink it on its own.

                  Opening the bottle to smell it was excellent it smelt divine very fruity and sweet and reminded me of drinking cocktails on holiday and being in the sun.

                  The 3 serving suggestions are:

                  - On its own with crushed ice -

                  This is really nice but you can taste the alcohol alot more having the drink this way, but it is very refreshing and extremely tasty.

                  - 1/3 Passoa 2/3 Cranberry Juice -

                  This is extremely refreshing and compliments the cranberry juice very well, sometimes cranberry juice can be dry but this still captures the flavour of the cranberry juice and brings it to life.

                  - 1/3 passoa 1/3 Apple juice 1/3 cranberry juice -

                  This was my least favourite combination as it was almost too many flavours in one I would probably swap the apple juice for orange juice for a more tropical complimentary flavour.

                  We tried a few different cominations ourselfs. we had it with lemonade this makes it taste like a fanta fruit twist very sweet and very drinkable! We also mixed it with peach schnapps, vodka, lots of orange juices and lemonade and cranberry juice and made it into a cocktail poured it into a big jug and it was delicious!

                  I would definitely recommend this if you enjoy fruity cocktails, the cheapest place to get it is asda, I haven't seen it in tesco's but you can buy it in sainsburys and it is around £11-12 there. Its a beautiful refreshing drink - highly recommended!

                  Disadvantages

                  The perfect drink for hazy summer afternoons, if you can find it first, that is...

                  It's only since working in a bar that I've started drinking Passoa, a passion fruit liquer. It's not very well known in the UK which really surprises me as it has such mass appeal. It's perhaps the sweetest alcoholic drink I've ever tasted; with lemonade it barely tastes alcoholic at all. If you love archers, cointreau or midori, you'll love Passoa. It's only 17% abv, so if you like a stronger drink you might like to mix two parts passoa to three parts mixer (like you would a Pimms & Lemonade). It also work wells with cranberry juice and a dash of lime and lemonade and orange juice. It's a fantastic spirit for making cocktails with and works well mixed with other fruit flavored liquers (as mentioned above).

                  I've also been told it's an aphrodisiac...So what are you waiting for??!

                  The only drawback, is that it's relatively hard to find the UK, try larger supermarkets and cocktail bars.

                  When you do it'll cost you around £11 for a 75 cl bottle.

                    Great tasting drink

                    I first tried Passoa over 3 months ago now after being asked to get it for a friend while the bar was busy, so I sampled it before I gave it to them and though hmm that's nice. Until Friday I hadn't touched it again. I only came about drinking it on the Friday because they were out of my first 3 choices!

                    Passoa is a passion fruit alcoholic beverage. It's not weak nor strong at 17% ABV, and is a liqueur that tastes nice by itself or mixed.

                    The only thing I could compare the taste to would be a flat alcoholic Fanta Fruit Twist, but the 'flatness' can be taken away when mixed with lemonade. Like all alcoholic drinks, when drank by itself you can ever so slightly taste the alcohol, but if you were to mix it with say a soft drink for example, it tastes very much like a mixture of fruity soft drinks that are available in today's market. From experience I've only tried mixing it with lemonade and with orange juice, but I'd be happily tempted to take the mixing further such as add vodka to the mix, make something new as it's flexibility with other drinks is endless.

                    Price wise, like all drinks it will vary wherever you go. It cost me £2 for a Passoa and lemonade at this bar on Friday, which I didn't think was bad at all. Like I stated earlier, I've been aware of Passoa for a few months now, and every now again have been on the lookout for it whenever I'm in a supermarket or Threshers or wherever, and I've always found it hard to come by. Looking at internet research, a 70cl bottle would set you back around the £11-13 mark, perhaps slightly more if bought from a shop.

                    I would recommend this drink to anyone. I say this because it would appeal to those who don't like the taste of strong alcohol such as straight vodka or whiskey, because the presence of passion fruit and the Fanta-like taste make it very tasty indeed. I will certainly be on the lookout for a bottle next time I'm on my travels!

                    ****Passoa****

                    I first came across this drink when i was out one night and the bar i was in didn't have any malibu.

                    **Bottle**
                    This comes in a sleek black bottle with the name of it in yellow/orange and red.The bottle does look really nice and if i had seen this in a shop before i had tried it i would have picked it up .

                    **Taste**
                    This has a passion fruit taste with alcohol.When you drink it theres no mistaking its alcoholic.It is rather strong and i don't know of any one who would drink this on its own,it is always drunk with something else.

                    recipe ideas
                    passoa and orange-1/3p 2/3 orange
                    1/3 pass, 2/3 cranberry
                    1/3 passoa,2/3 apple juice

                    These are all very nice.Another way to have it is with lemonade.All essential when it comes passoa i think if you did try to drink it on its own you would propbably be sick as it is that strong.



                    www.passoa.com
                    One bad thing about it is it is not widely available.It can be bought from Asdas for under £10 but you can't get it in Tescos, Morrisons etc
