What is Passoa?
Passoa is a passion fruit liqueur from France. It is made by macerating the juice and pulp of passion fruit, along with other natural ingredients, in alcohol. This results in a sweet and fruity liqueur that is perfect for mixing into cocktails, like your Passoa orange cocktail recipe.
However, it's important to remember that Passoa does contain alcohol and its sweetness can mask the alcohol's potency. As a result, it's essential to consume Passoa in moderation and let it sit for a while before drinking to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Despite this caution, Passoa's unique passion fruit flavor makes it a popular choice for creating delicious and refreshing cocktails.

- Glass: Finally, you'll need a suitable glass to serve your Passoa orange cocktail in. Any tall glass will do, but a classic hurricane or Collins glass works well for this fruity and refreshing cocktail.

👩🏻🍳How to make a Passoa Orange Cocktail
This cocktail is a shaken drink as it contains a citrus component.
Get a shaker and add some ice. Then pour in the Passoa and orange juice. In this cocktail we work with a ⅓ to ⅔ ratio. Pour in ⅓ Passoa and ⅔ orange juice.
If you want to measure properly I suggest you take an easy number. So, lets say we make a 6dl cocktail. Pour in 2dl Passoa and 4dl orange juice. Now shake well! I usually wing it and pour it in freely. It helps when you pour it into a glas to see when you have about ⅓. Then add the shaker on top of the glas, make sure it sticks together well and shake.
if you want you can add some ice to the glas you serve the coktail in.
Pour the drink into a high glas. Make sure your shaker has a sieve. If it does not then pour your cocktail trough a sieve to keep the ice back. The ice will break in shaker and you don't want that in your finished coktail.
