The Grange in Providence was the setting for “Bringing Back the 3-Martini Lunch” with The United States Bartenders Guild (USBG) and special guest, PAMA National Brand Ambassador Lynn House on October 9, 2013. The educational event featured a session on modifiers and creating balanced cocktails alongside the history of PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur.

One of the cocktails created that day was The Paw Paw Pama Tiki Cocktail. Paw Paw Fruit, a little-known native of the eastern United States, has yellow-green skin and soft, orange flesh with a creamy, custard-like consistency and a delicious, sweet flavor.
