Cocktails and Candles: French Gimlet

This past Christmas, Mark gave me an adorable candle with an interesting twist.  The scent is French Gimlet (elderflower and grapefruit) and is a part of Paddywax’s Mixology collection. Each candle has a cocktail recipe on the back, which, of course, we were excited to try, especially since we enjoy regular gimlets so much.

Though it’s a sweeter cocktail than I normally have, it was a nice refreshing drink on a  cold winter’s night.  It made us forget that it was still February for a few hours. I can see it being a great option for the end of a hot summer day.
