I love to have impromptu summer parties! Send a group text out to your closest friends, offer a pool, some grub, and cool drinks and you have an instaparty. This weekend I wanted to do something fun and reminiscent of the free-spirited summers of childhood. I have recently revived an obsession with shaved ice and I thought how fun would it be to set up a shaved ice bar.
It’s a great and simple way for your guest to keep cool and have fun! All you need is a cooler full of ice, shaved ice machine and a few easy to make syrups. But, I also decided to toss in some PAMA Liqueur because although we want to feel like kids we are still grown-ups. The PAMA Liqueur is a great add-on to many of your favorite shaved ice flavors. It adds a wonderful sweet and tart flavor, and the viscosity of the liqueur does great over ice. If you also want to offer your guest, a fun cocktail try out this delicious Pink & Stormy made with PAMA Liqueur.Here are some pool party and shaved ice bar essentials!
Shaved Ice Bar
- shaved ice machine
- cooler full of ice
- 3 – 4 syrup flavors
- PAMA Liqueur
- plastic cups
- plastic spoons
Pool Party Essentials
- extra towels for guest
- wireless bluetooth speaker

Throw in some grilled hot dogs and burgers and your guest will be so happy they may never leave!
Although a little bit of PAMA liqueur would be fabulous over a cream or cherry shaved ice I thought it would be especially wonderful over some lemon vanilla shaved ice. It’s heaven for the sweet & tart lovers!But, let’s take a moment to day-dream about an over the top fabulous pool party. You go all out with themed decor, games, food and adorable signs. Well, act now because there is still time to win a $500 or $250 PAMA party kit!!!
