Darling Drinks: The Palm Springer

Happy Monday everyone!  How was everyone’s weekend???  Unless you’ve been living under a rock with no wi-fi for the last week you probably know that Coachella weekend 1 just wrapped up.  I did not attend this year and didn’t even do the party scene this year which is a first in the last 5 years!  I am working on a blog post to share more about why I decided to sit this one out and will be sharing it later this week with you guys.

In the meantime, I wanted to share a quick and easy cocktail recipe that I make pretty often this time of year.  In full disclosure, I did not create this drink, it is on the menu at Workshop Kitchen + Bar here in Palm Springs but it is sooooo good I had to start recreating!  I personally feel like anytime I make this it makes me feel like I’m on a Palm Springs Vacation, laying by the pool, enjoying endless mountain and palm tree views.

What you’ll need:

A shot glass

Rocks glasses


Strawberry or Blackberry for garnish

To make: 

Fill each rocks glass with ice

1 1/2 shots of vodka (I always use Tito’s)

1/2 shot of Grenadine

1 ounce fresh lemon juice

3-5 dashes of Angostura Bitters

Top with Pineapple Juice and stir!

I garnish mine with strawberries but any berry will work or even a slice of pineapple!

  1. my first coachella was around 2005. it was really nice back then. quality bands and a good vibes all around. now coachella has this mass market appeal and the venue is over crowded. it’s not worth it anymore in my opinion.
