For Adults Only -- Get Creative This Valentine's Day with PAMA Liqueur -- Review and Giveaway

Doesn't this look pretty and tasty?  It is the PAMA Champagne.  I am not a bartender by trade, but when I am home, I like to experiment with drinks and see what flavors I can come up with, when mixing drinks.  And, with the recent sampling of PAMA liqueur, I was able to do just that.  Yesterday, during our annual Superbowl party, I played mixologist and created some amazing (well, I think so -- and, everyone drank every last drop from their glasses, so they must have been good) mixed drinks for my adult guests, with the 750ml bottle of PAMA liqueur I was sent to try.  A popular drink was PAMA and Champagne, as it was a cinch to make.  You simply added 2 oz. of PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur with 2 oz. of Champagne; give it a good shake in a shaker over ice; and, then strain it into a chilled glass.  Viola, it was that easy.  

I was sent a recipe book with the PAMA liqueur bottle, which offered some amazing liqueur combinations, including vodka, gin, whiskey, bourbon, rum and cachaca, tequila and brandy and cognac.  So, depending on your drink preference, there was a PAMA combination drink that could be made.  I also experimented with a few of the recipes, and found some new drinks to make.  Other popular drinks that were from the PAMA recipe book were Tea It Up, which included iced tea, lemonade and bourbon, the Modern Manhattan, which included whiskey and a dash of orange bitters, and the PAMA Daiquiri Freeze, which contained white rum, fresh lime juice and simple syrup.  Again, these popular drinks were easy to whip up, and consumed with delight by all the guests.  A few of the guests couldn't wait to stop by their favorite package store this week to pick up a bottle and have on hand, when the want to whip a mixed drink to unwind after a hectic or tiring day.  

Having never tried PAMA pomegranate liqueur before this occasion, I had no idea how it would taste, or how easy it was to make an assortment of mixed drinks.  But, now, I have a new favorite liqueur to pick up and have available at the bar for gatherings.  And, I can't wait to try some of the other drink recipes, as well create a few of my own.
