Re-use & Recycle - Our Christmas Cocktail Edition

The temperatures are dropping, days are getting shorter and its almost time to open the first door on your advent calendar! That’s right, we’re edging closer into the festive season which means it’s officially time to get Christmassy. Whether it’s making gingerbread houses, going to Christmas parties or just snuggling up and watching a Christmas movie, it’s time to celebrate! And what better way to commemorate the holiday season than with a drink or two?! We’ve put together a cocktail recipe, ideally served in one of our candle glasses, that’s perfect for the festive season!

Here, at Aery Living we’ve ensured that the design of our products is not only recyclable but sustainable. This means you can get as much use out of them as possible, even long after you’ve finished using them!

Reusing products is one of the best ways to battle throwaway culture and reduce your impact on the environment. Reusing products is great because its less expensive, uses less energy and creates less pollution than sending products to be recycled. It’s also great fun to get creative and give an item a new lease of life!

One of our favourite ideas is reusing our candle jars to serve these drinks by repurposing them as glasses. We recommend giving an old jar a good clean by scooping out leftover wax and giving it a thorough wash, either by hand or dishwasher. Once clean, follow the instructions below to create a cocktail which is sure to be a new festive favourite!

Reusing sustainable items is a great way to reduce your environmental impact and get creative. We hope you have fun repurposing your candle and enjoy our festive cocktail recipe!
