Simply Curated Cocktails

Sarah Cooley, creator of Simply Curated, has been hand-pouring candles in Grand Rapids for over a year now, using clean-burning soy with unique scent combinations set in chic, 22 Karat Gold screen printed cocktail glasses & in darling travel-size tins! In anticipation for their debut in our Grand Haven store this Saturday, we have put together an inspired cocktail list, each creation based on the featured candle's scent - and take it from us, they're 'scent-sational!' ; )

The GBC (Gin, Basil, Cucumber)
Scent: Cucumber Sweetgrass

Inspired by the Cucumber Sweetgrass candle, The GBC is perfect for a refreshing spritzer on a nice summer day after gardening. Easy to make and as refreshing as it sounds! After you've burnt the wick on this candle, grab a 'cuc' and cool down:

Grapefruit Mojitos

Scent: Grapefruit + Bergamot

The grapefruit mojito is perfect for entertaining guest out by your pool. Your friends will be truly impressed when they taste one of these fresh homemade mojitos. So dive on in and enjoy this complimentary recipe with a Grapefruit + Bergamot scented candle.

Guava Margaritas

Scent: Guava Fig

It’s five o’clock somewhere when your making margaritas! Instead of going to your favorite Mexican restaurant with your girlfriends stay in for a night of porch sipping with your new Guava Fig candle and complimentary guava margarita recipe!

 New York Sour
Scent: Oakmoss + Leather

The New York Sour is exactly what you need to wind down after a long day. Grab a good book from your study and kick your feet up while you enjoy this iconic drink with a modern twist. Don’t forget to light your Oakmoss + Leather candle for the perfect aroma.


Sarah will be showcasing her entire collection of candles in Grand Haven this Saturday, July 25th from 10am-4pm during Grand Haven Coast Guard Festival! Receive 15% off your entire purchase when you include $30 of Simply Curated candles to your bag during the Trunk Show! Until then, Cheers!
