How to Make the Perfect Poolside Spritz While Repurposing Your CIRCA Candle Jars

The summer season is in full swing - Naturally we’re enjoying the balmy days spent lounging by the pool, often accompanied by a mouth-watering, fruity spritz. There is no denying summer is the perfect season for a spritz and we have just the orange hued poolside spritz for you!

Inspired by our Scents Of Summer collection, we have curated a vibrant and fruity cocktail recipe, the CIRCA Mango & Papaya Spritz. Here’s how to create your next favourite drink with the option of a cocktail or mocktail:

 

Makes: 4 Glasses (we have repurposed CIRCA candle glass vessels)

Ingredients:
2 cups of frozen diced mango
Juice of 1 lime
1 ½ cups of peeled and diced papaya, chilled
150ml Aperol/Non-alcoholic Citrus flavoured sparkling drink
4 cups of ice cubes
Crushed ice, to serve
300ml Prosecco, chilled/Sparkling Apple juice

Garnish:
Mint sprigs
Sliced mango
Sliced lime rounds

Method:

Step 1: Put frozen mango, lime juice and a splash of water into the jug of a high-speed blender and blitz until smooth and sorbet-like.

Step 2: Spoon into recycled CIRCA candle glasses or serving glasses, using a spoon to swirl the mixture up one side of the glass, then place in the freezer. Freeze for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Step 3: Put papaya and Aperol into the jug of a high-speed blender and blitz until smooth. Add ice in batches, blitzing until slushie consistency.

Step 4: Spoon the papaya slushie mixture into glasses. Top with a little crushed ice, then top up glasses with Prosecco.

Step 5: Garnish with mint leaves, lime and mango.

Serve immediately and enjoy by the pool.

Sweet, fruity and oh-so-refreshing, the Mango & Papaya spritz, is sure to transport you to a tropical island! To elevate the ambience, just light the CIRCA Mango & Papaya Soy Candle and drift away.
