Mix This: Golden Gopher’s “Pomodon”

This drink is the invention of the Dean of the Golden Gopher, Dawnne Aubert. Dawnne has been with the Golden Gopher since 2004 and is part of the fabric of the bar. The Pomodon started out as a unique mixture of Bourbon, Pama liqueur and lemon juice that Dawnne had popularized to such a height that customers would order, “Dawnne’s pomegranate drink.” The bar family quickly adopted the nickname, “The Pama-Dawnne.” Over time, as the ingredients behind the bar evolved, the spelling of the cocktail got a bunch of “O’s.” House made pomegranate syrup made its way into the picture and Dawnne perfected her now home-famous recipe into this refreshing delight.

- .75 oz. Lemon Juice
- .25 oz. Sadaf Pomegranate concentrate
