A group of stylish, design-loving creatives serves as the “Mod Squad” during each Modernism Week in Palm Springs, documenting the event via social media. This year’s Modernism Week Fall Preview Mod Squad (Alex, Puno, Dan, Joey & Jessica) joined us at ARRIVE in Uptown Palm Springs for delicious bites and cocktails, including boozy popsicles and a special Mod-Tini. The cocktail recipes are included here so you can try them at home!

BOOZY POPSICLE MIMOSAS (two flavors)

Peach Spiced Rum

2 cups peach juice or syrup
1/3 cup spiced rum
1 ½ cup small peaches, chopped

Blueberry Lemonade Rosé  

1 cup rosé
2 cups sweetened lemonade
1/3 cup blueberries (keep ¼ whole, muddle the remainder)

Directions: Mix ingredients and freeze in a popsicle tray or your favorite silicone ice tray (can be made with a popsicle stick or drink stirrer as stick, or as ice cubes). Once frozen, place popsicle in glass and pour champagne over (or rosé and white wine work well too!).

We used vintage fabric from The Frippery to make custom cocktail napkins to accompany adorable Palm Springs and Modernism Week-inspired cocktail stirrers by California Lustre. After falling in love the most gorgeous iridescent luster and gold vases from West Elm Palm Springs, we knew we had to use them to decorate the soireé, filled with tropical blooms.
