“It did a happy dance in my mouth!” said my mother-in-law after tasting my pomegranate mojito cupcakes. I couldn’t have said it better myself. But what kind of dance? I’d say a Lindy Hop. The sweetness of PAMA Pomegranate Liqueur combined with the tangy sourness of mint*, rum, and lime reminds me of a high energy couple bouncing around the dance floor, occasionally doing flips and throws to the thrill of the crowd (perhaps I have an overactive imagination).
Cooking With PAMA
I made these pomegranate mojito cupcakes as an entry into the Cooking with PAMA Contest. If I win When I win, I get to go to the Food and Wine Classic in Aspen! I wanted to wait until I had a cupcake that I really thought could win before entering – this pomegranate mojito cupcake is it!
Update: I didn’t win. But, it was sure fun trying!
BTW – Isn’t the PAMA bottle gorgeous! Jonathan couldn’t resist taking its photo.

*I know that I said I would never make a cupcake with mint, but mint is growing on me and I really should never say never.
