Grapefruit Basil Martini

Our expert mixologist team draws inspiration from our on-site garden when creating our seasonal cocktails. During the winter months, our lush citrus trees are in full bloom and our basil leaves are plentiful. Our popular Grapefruit Basil Martini is light, refreshing and the perfect balance of sweet, sour and savory.

Colorful Desert Inspiration Shoot

wedding photography location Arizona
Attention brides-to-be! If you’re in search of vibrant and colorful wedding inspiration, look no further. We are so thrilled to be the backdrop for this inspired styled shoot featured on Style Me Pretty!

From Daniel Kim PhotographyThe inspiration for this shoot came from the venue which features beautiful mission style architecture and an amazing desert backdrop. When people think desert, they think of dirt, rocks, and sand with brown and tan colors. We wanted to draw our color palette from the flowers and fruits that grow from the native cactus and plants, such as saguaro and prickly pear pink fruits, mint greens from agave and barrel cacti. Our florist Randi of Carte Blanche Design created the prettiest centerpiece, bouquet and hairpiece using vibrant colors (blush, light pink, and magenta) that complemented the season & surroundings which was filled with bougainvillea, olive trees, and desert plants.
