Boozed + Infused

Infusing liqueurs at home with inspiring and seasonal ingredients

The Sparkling 111


Ringing in the New Year ● Palm Springs style



Better late then never!

I previously posted a few photos of the persimmon liqueur I was making at the end of last year.  Well, life got in the way of me getting to this specific post, but we did in fact create a New Years Eve cocktail with the persimmon liqueur that was totally inspired by Palm Springs.  After spending a mellow Christmas holiday here in Venice we loaded up the car and hit the road for the desert.  We checked into the Ace Hotel & Swim Club as per usual, jumped in the pool and then whipped up a little sparkling sunset treat on our patio. It seemed to fit in perfectly in there… it must have been that delicious peachy tone.  (see recipe below)
