Advantages: fantastic exotic taste
Disadvantages: isn't sold in all supermarkets
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.
Summary: very exotic!
