Watermelon Pomegranate Agua Fresca
You might have missed our last post about the fabulous contest from PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur. Since summer is here, we have partnered with PAMA to share their fun contest and to share one of our favorite drink recipes with you.
WATERMELON POMEGRANATE AGUA FRESCA
- 2 cups water
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 cups seedless watermelon
- 1 lime, juiced
- 6 ounces PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur
- Bring the water and sugar to a boil, stirring occasionally.
- After the mixture has reached a boil, remove from heat and let cool.
- When the sugar-water mixture has cooled completely, combine it with the watermelon, PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur and lime juice in a blender.
- Blend until smooth.
PAMA Liqueur captures the complex, sweet yet tart taste and seductive ruby color of all-natural pomegranates. PAMA is made with all-natural pomegranate juice, premium vodka and a touch of imported tequila. PAMA is known for its ruby red color and its delicious flavor. Bottled at 34 proof, PAMA is highly mixable in a range of cocktails such as the PAMA Cosmo, PAMA Martini, PAMA Margarita, PAMA Mojito, and PAMA andChampagne.
PAMA also pairs well with most foods, and is used in both cooking and baking to create vinaigrettes, glazes, sauces, and desserts. PAMA’s sweet yet tart taste makes it the perfect addition to any summer party, whether in the form of refreshing cocktails, party punches, or sweet frozen summer treats.
PAMA is running a very fun summer contest. To enter, you must create a Pinterest board that details what your ideal summer party would look like – from theme to décor to drinks, and party tips. Winners will receive the chance to make their summer party come to life, with some help from PAMA. There will be one grand prize winner and four runners up. The prizes include:
Grand Prize Winner: $500 gift card and PAMA party kit to throw a summer party
Runners Up: $250 gift card and PAMA party kit to throw a summer party
I know that either one of these kits could really help us celebrate summer. We could invite more friends over and share some of our favorite watermelon recipes. Watermelon is one of my favorite fruits to create recipes around during the summer and I could easily add PAMA to a watermelon granita, just in the fruit itself or into my famous Watermelon Agua Fresca (we actually made this today to stay tuned for our recipe later this week).
