Grapefruit Honey Sake Cocktail & Capri by Skylar

Sharing is caring!

Fall is just around the corner, but I am savoring every bit of summer with good cocktails and beautiful scents.  What better way to engage my senses than with a Grapefruit Honey Sake Cocktail and Capri by Skylar.  This cocktail takes about 10 minutes to make, so you can host a last-minute girls night, whip up a batch of sake cocktails, spritz a little Capri on your neck and wrists, and be ready to go in no time at all.

Flavors and scents can trigger memories, and a combination of a refreshing cocktail and a sweet perfume can transport you to a relaxing island vacation.  On a warm summer day, a spritz of Skylar’s Capri and a sip of Grapefruit Honey Sake Cocktail will create memories that smell and taste sweet. You don’t need a plane ride to get to where you want to be.

Capri: More Than Just an Island

Skylar’s Capri is a Mediterranean-inspired scent with notes of grapefruit, bergamot, blood orange, neroli, and dewy rose.  The scent is inspired by Capri, a vibrant little island off the coast of my Nonno’s hometown of Naples in Italy.  The sweet smell of Capri inspired me to make a Grapefruit Honey Sake Cocktail.  The sweetness of the grapefruit and honey is light and refreshing and tastes like sunshine feels.  I use Hakutsuru Sayuri Nigori sake, which adds a creamy flavor without overpowering the citrus base.  This specific sake is soft and floral, just like the neroli in Capri. The hints of white grape and flowers add a beautiful and lush element to the drink.

Skylar is a leader in the clean perfume industry, creating scents that are non-toxic, clean, hypoallergenic, vegan, and cruelty-free.  Traditional perfumes often contain synthetic dyes, parabens, phthalates, and allergens, which is not good for the human body.  Skylar stands behind their commitment to clean, safe beauty through their Skylar Promise:

Clean ingredients. Clean formulas. Hypoallergenic scents. Skylar products are comprised of a combination of naturally derived and safe synthetic ingredients that are all subject to our Skylar safety screening. We proudly blend botanical-based and lab-made ingredients to ensure our products are safe and hypoallergenic.

Skylar takes it a step further by using dual-purpose packaging, recyclable packing materials, and by partnering with suppliers who are eco-friendly and ethical.  I feel safe and smell great when I use Skylar.
