Pama Liqueur?

In the January Vogue there is an ad for Pama a pomegranate liqueur. It came with a perfumed strip and it has an interesting aroma as long as you don't get your nose too close, then it becomes pretty disgusting. Anyone tried this stuff? Yes, no, indifferent?

  1. i've had it in a pomegranate martini and it was not impressive.

    1. I've had it chilled (in the fridge) by itself and it was fine. Nothing "super-great" but certainly not bad. No offense to wowimadog, but if you haven't tried something on its own without any additions, you can't really comment on the quality.

      Candy, just like any magazine perfume/cologne advertisement, you can't really judge the quality by a magazine strip. Especially a liquor or something you actually consume. It would be like someone advertising a cooked lobster smell in a magazine. In reality it would smell like cooked seafood, but probably not appetizing... but cook a lobster in your own home and eating it at your dinner table. Well that's just delicious!

      Go by your local liquor store and see if they have the small 1 shot bottles of the stuff. If not, they can order it. It's a relatively inexpensive way to try something that would otherwise be a "risky" investment.

      1. I've had this several times and find it to be quite good.

        There are some good recipies on thier website. Both food and drink.

        FWIW, I'm kinda partial to the margaritas.

        1. I used this with pomegranate vodka to make a martini and found it to be somewhat bitter...2 packets of Splenda in the shaker took care of that. :)

            Ahh, Splenda - the stuff my fellow classmates and budding chemists said they would never, ever, ever put in their food after research and experiments. To each his/her own, but what I've heard from them, I wouldn't eat it.

              I've also substituted a tbsp. of superfine sugar or simple syrup for the Splenda and it works equally well. :)

          2. Try a bit of triple sec or a more high end orange flavor liquor, blends nicely with the PAMA, add some fresh lime and spirt of your choice.
