Did you know that our candle vessels are actually heavy rock glasses? That means the best way to re-use these vessels after your candle has burned out is by filling them with your favorite beverage.
Need some inspiration? We have been mixing up a new seasonal cocktail/mocktail beverage every Friday over on Instagram-- Be sure to come on over and follow along!
We have come up with several fall inspired beverages that pair wonderfully with our fall scented candles. Fall is a time to stay home, get cozy on your couch, light a candle, grab a drink and binge netflix.
This first recipe screams FALL!! Would a perfect drink to mix up after a long day of apple/pumpkin picking.
Cinnamon Sugar and flaky sea salt, for the rim
2 Oz. mezcal or silver tequila
1/2 oz orange liquor
4 oz apple cider
juice from 1/2 lime
1-2 teaspoons maple syrup (use more or less to your taste)
Apple slices and cinnamon sticks for serving
1. If desired, rim your glass in salted cinnamon sugar. Mix equal parts cinnamon sugar and sea salt. Run a lime wedge around the rim of the glass and coat in sugar.
2. Combine the mezcal or silver tequila, orange liquor, apply cider, lime juice and maple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake to combine. Strain into the glass. Garnish with apple slices and cinnamon sticks.
Sticking with apples--this drink was absolutely delicious and goes perfectly in our heavy rock glasses!
Cinnamon sugar for the rim of the glass
2 tablespoons apple butter
2 oz bourbon
dash of cinnamon
top off with chilled ginger ale
orange slices for garnish
1. Rim your glass with a wedge of citrus. Poor some cinnamon sugar on a plate. Dip the rim of the glass in the cinnamon sugar. ** Note if you do not have cinnamon sugar, simply mix together sugar and cinnamon on a plate.
2. Fill a shaker glass with ice. Add the apple butter, bourbon, and a dash of cinnamon. Shake well for 30 seconds. Scoop the mixture into the glass. Fill the glass with gingerale and enjoy!
To make this cocktail a mocktail-- simply leave out the bourbon!! It is amazingly delicious either way!
I hope you enjoy these recipes and be sure to follow us on Instagram for our weekly Candle and Cocktails-- every Friday!
Please remember to ALWAYS drink responsibly. :)
As I said earlier candles and cocktails go great together-- I would personally pair these cocktails with our Autumn Harvest Candle. With notes of cinnamon, apple and clove it's the perfect candle to pair with an apple cocktail/mocktail!
