This has been the never ending week guys...I don't know what is going on, but I could not be any more excited that tomorrow is Friday! Between being a mom to a toddler and all that comes with it, all the while trying to balance a busy work week, it's just been one of those challenging mama weeks around our house! One thing that I always have on hand for an afternoon pick me up is kombucha! I seriously love this stuff and it definitely gives me a little energy boost when I need it most! I don't know why it has never dawned on me until now to put a little booze in it, but man I am glad I finally did! My persimmon and rosemary boozy booch is the perfect fall cocktail to kick off your weekend!
This week has flown by, but I have accomplished so much it feels like about ten days should have passed. I have been working sun up to sun down and have calluses on my hands to prove it. Like man calluses...ew. Anyway, I could not be more thrilled that the weekend is around the corner and once again I am celebrating early with my thirsty Thursday tradition that was supposed to only be during the summer months, but then I realized that was a terrible idea. Why would I stop making cocktails? So I'm not going to. My persimmon spice punch is a drink with a kick that will take the edge right off and send you sailing into Friday.
Have you ever had a persimmon? I sure hadn't until I moved to Louisiana and our old neighbors had a tree in their yard and used to bring me bags full. And honestly it wasn't love at first bite. It was mushy, and I don't do mushy. It wasn't until last year that I tried a persimmon that was perfectly ripe and still firm that I fell in love. They are kind of a gorgeous fruit too.
