Two Guys Walk Into A Bar

Two Guys Walk Into A Bar is a new weekly feature I am writing for Zeus News, the official blog of The Golden Lion Cafe.

The Golden Lion is proud to offer two premium spirits, Agavero® Tequila Liqueur and PAMA® Pomegranate Liqueur. Both are featured in our Valentine's night drink specials.

Agavero is an ultra-premium spirit that is created from a blend of 100% blue agave añejo and reposado tequilas hand blended with the essence of Damiana flower for unparalleled smoothness and taste.

Agavero is produced at Los Camichines Distillery in the Jalisco region of Mexico where the blue agave plant is grown. This officially designated region includes the state of Jalisco, parts of adjoining states and the town of tequila for which the spirit is named.

The master distiller selects the highest quality 100% blue agave añejo and reposado tequilas that have been separately aged in specially charred, French Limousin oak barrels. The añejo tequila is aged up to eighteen months and the reposado tequila is rested for nearly a year. The tequilas are combined and then hand blended with the essence of Damiana, a flower indigenous to the hot mountains of Jalisco that has been rumored for centuries to stir up the emotions among individuals.

At 64 proof, Agavero can be enjoyed straight, on the rocks or in a number of cocktails. Agavero is imported locally by Crillon Importers.

Try it in a Lovers' Margarita on Valentine's Day.

PAMA, the world's first true pomegranate liqueur, captures the complex sweet, yet tart, taste and seductive color of pomegranates. PAMA is made with all-natural pomegranate juice, premium vodka, and a touch of imported tequila. Bottled at 34 proof PAMA is highly mixable, from the simple-PAMA and champagne-to the sublime, PAMA Mojito.

Try a PAMA Cosmopolitan with your sweetie this Thursday night.
