The Parker’s Muddled Lemonade


muddled lemonade copyThe Dishing girls took a trip to Palm Springs in December and had a wonderful time exploring the different restaurants, quirky homes and fun hotels. If you haven’t checked out the story in the newest issue, make sure you do. With the gross spring weather we have been having I find myself daydreaming of the palm trees, hot pink houses, and probably my favorite location- The Parker.

The Parker at Palm Springs is one of the most whimsical hotels and properties I have ever visited. The lobby is bright with a lot of fun decorations. When you walk out into the courtyard the entire property is a maze with bushes at least ten feet high creating fun walkways and secret hide-away spots. We found ourselves getting lost on this property a lot, but we found life size chess games, hammocks, love nest benches, and most importantly a fun little spiked lemonade stand.

The Parker’s Muddled Lemonade is delicious and refreshing and the perfect libation to sip on while strolling through the property. We found a bright yellow table under cafe lights in palm trees and decided to spend some time sipping on our lemonade and enjoying the warm December weather. With summer right around the corner this is the perfect time to make up your own muddled lemonade and enjoy!
