Rainy Day Cocktails
April showers bring May flowers- but what can brighten up your bar in the meantime? We took to one of our favorite all-things-drinks website, Liquor.com*link for some inspiration from some of the world’s top mixologists. Now, your first instinct may be to try something hot and/or spiced for rain days, but we loved the fresh and fruity looks of the “Space Gin Smash“. The weather forecast says more rain, but with bright and fresh lemon, muddled mint (–they had us there!) apple and grape, this drink is sure to add some sunshine to your week!
Check out the entire recipe below, and keep the fresh spring feel alive with our Repurposed Tanqueray Gin Bottle Natural Soy Candle with our Legendary Gin fragrance option– a botanical blend with a lemon twist. This candle always comes double wicked, and you can even keep the top!
We love the new keep-the-top feature, as it allows for even more repurposing when the candle has finished.
