"PomegranateLiqueur" news and stories
Over the years, the contents of that liquor cabinet have morphed and shifted, making room for bottles of vodka (not a spirit my grandparents used much) and saying good bye to the whiskey that friends and family have pilfered. One recent addition that has really been floating my personal cocktail boat of late has been the bottle of Pama that I acquired a few months back.
Pama is a pomegranate flavored liqueur that is tangy, sweet and has a glowing red hue. It's all the pomegranate (plus some) without all the work! I like to make an adult soda with it, mixing a couple of ounces of Pama with plain old soda water, finishing it with a squeeze of lemon. It's similar to when you cut sparkling water with cranberry juice, only with a slightly intoxicating zing. It's also great for deglazing the pan when you're working with sweet and savory flavors (there's a recipe on the Pama website for Oven Roasted Pork Chops with a Shallot and Pama Sauce that sounds absolutely delicious).
If you're looking for something to add a little zip to your special holiday drink, I highly suggest that you consider Pama as your secret ingredient! If you're looking for a little recipe inspiration, there are two options after the jump.
Proclaimed as the world's first pomegranate liqueur Pama is now available in the UK.
It cashes in of course with the new found popularity of the pomegranate - a super food. Pama is made with 100% pomegranate juice concentrate, premium vodka and tequila. It has been described as having an 'exquisite sweet tart flavour'. It is intended as a base for cocktails and the website handily provides a few recipes. You could try the Champagne Dream (mixed with orange liqueur, fresh orange and champagne) or how about the Peacock (more vodka and orange liqueur).
Pama retails for around £20 a bottle in the UK.
