The Desert Paloma

Shaken and spiked. Here are the recipes for our succulent-and-cocktail class next week.

It's the final days to order your succulent planting box for our virtual Cocktail-and-Succulent Class next week. First, choose the vase that best fits your home decor. Then pick up your planting box from Emerson Rose boutique in Montrose. Inside you'll find a $20 Emerson Rose gift card, in addition to all the materials you need to plant three live succulents, a mini bottle of Desert Door and a recipe card so you can make one of the cocktails below, before joining our editors for the hands-on class led by the local green thumb behind Succulent Bar

We can't wait to virtually toast with you.
