What's the Buzz About Peach Fuzz? Pantone's Color of the Year

Pantone 13-1023 Peach Fuzz color swatchSome people think it's delicious, like a Peach Bellini on a terrace in summer. Or a Peach Cobbler with vanilla bean ice cream on top.

Pantone's Executive Director thinks it's, "A shade that resonates with compassion, offers a tactile embrace, and effortlessly bridges the youthful with the timeless." Her copywriter deserves a raise.

Some of us have already gone one round with Peach in the early 90s. Are we excited about it? Meh. Wedding designers have already moved into the terra cotta, mauve, and sage zone so Peach Fuzz is a natural progression. Really the big problem is the name, and it's not even Pantone's fault. PEACHES ARE NOT THIS COLOR AND WE DON'T KNOW WHO DUBBED THIS COLOR ( which is obviously closer to a cantaloupe) 'PEACH' BUT WE CURSE THEM.

Even though we're only marginally excited about this color, we designers cannot help ourselves when it comes to embracing new things. So we invented our very own Peach Fuzz Mocktail/Cocktail in honor of the controversial color of the year and the hope that this year is just peachy for y'all.
Cranberry Juice
2 oz Orange Juice
4 oz sparkling water
Optional: 2 - 4 oz Peach Vodka (yes, this is a thing and it's delicious)
Fresh cranberries
Sprig of Rosemary
Pour cranberry juice over cranberries in an ice cube tray and freeze to make cranberry ice cubes - they are gorgeous and when they melt they add flavor and color instead of watering your drink down. Drop them in a fancy glass with the other stuff and raise a glass to celebrate your awesome self.
