You've all heard of the drink called the “Blue Motorcycle”. Well, I just invented the “RED MOTORCYCLE”! (Fame & fortune coming my way!) While the “Blue Motorcycle” is a take-off of the “Long Island Iced Tea”, my new drink is a high-octane variation of the “Blue Motorcycle”, with Pama Pomegranate Liqueur and Cranberry Ginger Ale giving it its signature red color. The problem I’ve always had with the “Blue Motorcycle”, and Blue Curaçao in general, is Blue Curaçao’s dominant, some might say overbearing, flavor. A little definitely goes a long way. In the “RED MOTORCYCLE”, however, the taste throughout is less sweet, more balanced, with the tang of Pama and the slight sweetness of Cranberry Ginger Ale giving it a subtle yet flavorful complexity. And like the two drinks that are its forebears, it's really strong (yet surprisingly smooth).*
