Tequila-infused gummies are the best new adults-only candy
We just found your latest summer obsession: Tequila-infused gummies!
Yep. Tequila-infused gummies have arrived. While people have been been soaking sweet treats in liquor for the last few years (vodka gummy bears, anyone?), these tequila-infused candies from Sugarfina are elevating that frat-house trend to a new level of culinary excellence.
Sugarfina is a gourmet candy boutique that has one simple mission: To create the ultimate candy store for grown-ups. Last summer, they made a splash with their rosé gummy bears, which were so popular there was a wait list to buy them! And thanks to their creative, carefully-crafted combinations of candy and liquor, it’s easy to see why they have adults going Willy Wonka for their creations.
Now, their latest product is tequlia-infused candy made with Casamigos tequila, an ultra-premium tequila company founded by none other than George Clooney. Yep, this stuff is no Jose Cuervo! This top-of-the-line tequila is fermented for 80 hours and created with a proprietary yeast blend.
The top-notch tequila pairs perfectly with Sugarfina’s sweets, and the Casamigos Collection includes stand-out flavors such as “Shake Your Margarita” (a crisp, clean margarita gummy infused with Casamigos Blanco tequila and hints of lime and sweet agave) and “Paloma Por Favor” (juicy, sour grapefruit-flavored Paloma gummies infused with Casamigos Reposado tequila).
If gummies aren’t your thing, Sugarfina also offers a great option for you chocolate-lovers. Their “Give It A Shot” tequila cordials are a sphere of rich dark chocolate filled with a smooth sip of Casamigos Añejo tequila. Kind of like a rum cordial, but with tequila instead.
Of course, these sweets are a bit more expensive than a box of $1 Nestlé Raisinets at Target. The Casamigos Collection will set you back about $8.50 per small box, but the ingredients are top-shelf, which helps to justify the price tag. Plus, these special candies would make an elegant hostess gift. Instead of another boring bottle of wine or sangria, wow your friends with these tequila-infused sweet treats.
Now, if only George Clooney could hand deliver them…
