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)

When Life Hands you Lemons…

…make Limoncello

I suppose thats the celebratory way to think of it anyways.   And when you live in Southern California life most certainly hands you lemons.  In my case I seem to have an abundance of lemons making their way into my house from the trees in friends and neighbors yards.   It is truly fantastic!!  I just have lemon tree envy, wishing i had my own.    But instead I will just have to try  making some limoncello this winter.   I tried a fast version last year, but I think this time around I will try the slower version and keep you posted on how its coming along.


Persimmon Goodness

I was introduced to theses sweet little treasures when we first moved to LA.   They are sweet and silky and tasty.  I am trying to turn them into a little liqueur for a champagne cocktail for our New Years Eve toast in Palm Springs this year.   Cant wait to see how it turns out! (stay tuned)
