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)

The Sparkling 111

Ingredients:

Persimmon Liqueur

Champagne or Prosecco chilled

Directions:

Pour about 1 Tablespoon of Persimmon Liqueur into each glass, then fill with Champagne or Prosecco.  Serve immediately and repeat when necessary.

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)
