Cocktails with Passoa

One of my new bottle is great black bottle of Passoa Passion Fruit liqueur. Passoa Passion Fruit liqueur is modern creature of Remy-Cointreau Company. It was launched 1986 in European market and 1994 worldwide. This bright pink liqueur has exotic sweet taste of passion fruit juice, citrus and herbs. Great thing for easy summer cocktails.

I collect some interesting cocktails with Passoa Passion Fruit liqueur:
