PAMA would like to sincerely thank all of the bartenders and mixologists who submitted recipes to the first-ever "Are You Indispensable?" cocktail competition celebrating PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur. The competition clearly resonated with bartenders across the country and we are thrilled with the over overwhelming participation and the sheer enthusiasm displayed for PAMA.
As such, we want to make sure we take ample time to thoroughly review the record-breaking 242 recipes submitted via our competition partner, ShakeStir.com, and carefully select the well-deserving finalists. To ensure this, we plan to postpone the final competition in New York City until January 2014. Finalists will be announced on Monday, December 2, so stay tuned!
The competition spotlights PAMA's role as the indispensable modifier that harmonizes an infinite array of base spirits, both clear and aged, and cocktail ingredients in drinks for every occasion and season. With its balanced sweet-tart flavor, silky texture and ruby-red color, PAMA brings complexity and sophistication to cocktails ranging from aperitifs to nightcaps.
Bartenders and mixologists were invited to create a cocktail recipe using PAMA. Six finalists will be chosen on December 2, 2013 to compete in New York City for a chance to win the $5,000 grand prize, second place prize of $2,000, or third place prize of $1,000.
