What you'll do

Tangerine toddies, mulberry mojitos, persimmon old fashions, loquat bellinis: the possibilities are endless! Something is always in season in San Pedro, and I pick and swap fruit with my neighbors all year long. You'll join me as we deliver fresh picked fruit to my friends and pick something new from their trees. We'll bring the harvest back to my house and get to work turning it into a fresh seasonal cocktail. Once the drinks are made, it's time to relax and enjoy the fruits of our labor. You'll go home with a ton of fresh picked fruit too.
Other things to note
Wear comfortable shoes and sunscreen, we will be outside the majority of the time. There is parking available for several cars in my driveway. Alcohol for cocktails will be provided free of charge.

I love living in San Pedro and want to show it off. This neighborhood is alive, and picking fruit from the streets is my favorite way to see it. Turning these fresh fruits into happy hour cocktails is living off the land, Pedro style.

Where you'll be

We will start and end the experience in my garden. The trees we pick from are all at private residences of San Pedro. The owners are the friends and neighbors I trade fruit with on a regular basis.

i am so glad i booked this experience ! it was so neat to see this neat community exchange, how they share the abundance of fruit and connect with each other. army was so warm, friendly, attentive and fun - from the questions i had before booking and throughout the experience. we enjoyed a lovely time wandering through the neighborhood, picking and sampling and learning about the fruit, and then participating in creating most excellent cocktails to enjoy while watching the sun set. the other guests were a great fit as well. magical experience.

After I bought this, I thought, “I’ve picked fruit before, what am I doing?” The answer turned out to be, “It’s a wonderful and unique experience.” I definitely felt like this was a great value and a very pleasant experience. Army was immediately very warm and welcoming, as was her very large dog Samson. We started our adventure with a wagon and fruit pickers. We walked to a nearby neighbor’s place and picked tangerines, oranges, and lemons. We are tangerines while we worked. We made new friends and then took our bounty to the next location where we traded some of our spoils for the right to pick avocados from a massive tree. We also made new friends with a new family. Next, we took our full fruit cart back to Army’s place. A few magic steps later we were drinking rosemary-infused hot toddies and watching the sunset amongst tide pools and whales. Magical.

This experience may sound a bit quirky (which was a draw for me), but we (4 adults) had a great time. There were 3 other adults in the group who appeared to enjoy it as much as we did. We picked avocados from one neighbor's tree and then tangerines in another's yard. The owner of the tangerine tree joined us, toured us through her fruit trees and yard, and was delightful. Went back to Army's place, peeled tangerines, juiced them by hand, and made yummy hot toddies (everybody had jobs to do). Note: I don't particularly like hot toddies but these were delish! Army is delightful and has a "joie de vivre" that is catchy. She also gave us a bunch of good dinner recommendations. And we came home with lots of goodies. I had tangerine juice for breakfast and have been munching on tangerine segments all day. Can't wait until my avocados ripen! All in all - a super fun afternoon with Army! *****

Fresh Picked Happy Hour was an incredibly unique experience that far exceeded expectations. Army was a warm, welcoming and genuinely authentic person who was lovey to be around and who made sure we all had a great time. We met at her house (and got to pet her super sweet and friendly dog, Sampson) and kicked the experience off with a slice of avocado from her tree, one of many fruit trees in her home orchard. Then we grabbed pickers and a wagon and set off walking a couple blocks away through charming, old-world homes and bungalows in San Pedro to a friendly neighbor’s house who let us pick tangerines and oranges from the trees in her yard. She also gave us a quick tour of her yard, loaded with fruit trees and grape vines and plants of all sorts. She then gave us each a pineapple plant to take home and plant! Then we went back to Army’s, juiced some of our haul and made citrus hot toddies together using rosemary infused honey (which we also made) a little splash of whiskey, plenty of fresh citrus juice and a small pat of butter. We packed it all up and went to the most beautiful beach nearby at the base of huge cliffs with palm trees and tide pools. We watched the sun set as we sipped what was certainly the best hot toddy I’ve ever had. We had lots of laughs and fun with the crew of four on this little urban adventure and we all left with a big bag of fresh fruit to take home. Relaxed, easy and very special experience. Just the kind of off-the-beaten-path, hang-with-the-locals experience travelers yearn for but rarely are able to access. Do this. You’ll be glad you did. ❤️

Simply fantastic! What a really cool experience! We met at Army’s house where we were met with delicious, fresh avocado from her tree and her very large and friendly dog, Sampson(loved him!). Then we went to pick fruit at a neighbor’s house. We made hot toddies and went to watch the sunset. I would definitely do this experience again! Thank you!

This was unexpectedly amazing experience! I was a little skeptical at first and did not really take it seriously but I ended up enjoying every minute of it. Army is such an attentive and energetic host. She was super friendly and patient with us. We brought some fruits home, got a new super yummy hot cocktail recipe and spent the best time together. I think I’ll come back for another round! Strongly recommended!
