Mix & Match: Sweet Grapefruit

Have you ever found yourself exploring the pages of our website and thinking "my goodness, this candle fragrance sounds almost good enough to eat!"?  Well, friends - you're not the only ones!  We put tremendous intention into curating unique and delicious fragrances that dance in the background of your life, but as we pour our candles in candleland we too recognize that these delicious pairings deserve to be experienced in more ways than one, which is how we got the crazy idea to craft a custom cocktail inspired by one of our favorite spring candles: Sweet Grapefruit!

If you love grapefruit you are going to LOVE our fun + fresh take on a classic Paloma.  This cocktail is sweet, fruity, and bursting with bright citrus flavor just like our sweet grapefruit candle - it has us dreaming of a sunny spring picnic with this delicious drink in hand! This recipe also makes for a great mocktail if you're looking to wow your kiddos with a fun beverage, or wanting to go boozeless yourself, simply omit the tequila!  However you choose to enjoy it, we know one thing for certain: you're definitely going to enjoy it!  This recipe makes 2 cocktails, feel free to cut in half if enjoying alone, or double up if entertaining a group!
