    PAMA - Pomegranate Liqueur

    I want to encourage anyone who is interested in mixed drinks to try Heaven Hill's new PAMA pomegranate liqueur. I first sampled it at Cliff's house when Bettye Jo brought a bottle. I liked it so much I ran out this weekend and got one for the house. It's suprisingly dry for a liqueur, and I suspenct that's why I like it. I enjoy it at 3:1 bourbon to PAMA. Leslie likes it on ice and in a Champagne mimosa. It also makes a fine cosmopolitan. You can find out more about PAMA at the PAMA website.

    I saw this also this weekend and after reading what I did from all you at the party I almost purchased it, but I was at a little overpriced store scouting for bourbon rarities; therefore I put it off figuring I'd probably find it for a bit less. I see Hi Time does have it so I'll plan on picking one up soon as I think it might be a nice additive in a Margarita or mixed with a good blanco (silver) tequila. Of course I'll try it with Bourbon also!!

    I picked one up and invited friends over for a PAMA-tini. After two.....I had to go to bed! Goes down way to easy! Next time we're making the PAMA-Rita!

    Reminds me of a favorite Dorothy Parker quote:

    I love to have a martini,
    Or two at the very most.
    After three I'm under the table;
    After four I'm under my host!

    Cheers

    Pama is so hot item right now As soon as it hits the shelves it sells out...

    We've had to shut other lines down and move them to the Pama line to help meet the demand...

    New jobs are being created for this Pama line That's good news, especially when one of the new hires is my brother in law, Chris

    Pama goes good with Gin

    I picked up a mini of Pama today to try. I mixed one part Pama to two parts Plymouth Gin, shook with ice and strained into a martini glass. Wow. What a drink. Not bourbon mind you, but very nice. Now I wish I had bought a large bottle. I will have to wait until Monday to do so. I do hate the blue laws in TN.

    I bought a bottle of PAMA from internet order from Hitimewine. Mixed a martini tonight with Chambray Blood Orange Vodka, PAMA, and Pryat XO. It was very good. Pryat balanced some of the PAMA tart with additional sweetness.

    I picked up a bottle of this stuff the other day. delicious! Made a cosmo for my girlfriend, and a bourbon manhattan for myself. Ended up cutting the manhattan with a bit of water, too sweet. Very good, will buy again.
