Any time there is a chance to combine two of our favorite activities — drinking and eating, of course — we will jump at it. Whether it’s pounding brewskis and eating hot dogs at a football game, working our way through a Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon and California cuisine pairing, or drinking whiskey and eating wings, the ability to put the two necessities together is great. Now, we have a new way to do that, which anyone with a sweet tooth is really going to enjoy.
Tito’s Vodka has partnered with the luxury candy boutique Sugarfina to create a new set of vodka-infused candies. The collection will feature two new sweets inspired by the Moscow Mule and by (just about) everyone’s love of chocolate.
“As craft vodka lovers, we’re excited to partner with [Tito’s] on this grown-up candy collection,” Sugarfina co-founders Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick said in a statement. “These new vodka-infused treats perfectly round out our top shelf collection.”
The first new candy, American Mule bears, are non-alcoholic gummy bears imbued with Tito’s and a splash of ginger beer. The taste calls to mind one of the drinks that Tito’s is perhaps most known for.
If you’re looking for actual booze in your candy, though, you’re going to want to try the Tiro’s Vodka Cordials. Made of rich dark chocolate, each cordial has a sip of Tito’s contained inside. Both sets comes in a signature Sugarfina cube and retail for $8.50.
If you decide you need all of these in your life, there is the “Vodka Is Always a Good Idea Candy Bento Box,” which will contain both flavors. The collection comes in a custom box and is accompanied by a mini hand-crafted copper mule mug. The Candy Bento Box retails for $28.
Previously, Sugarfina has worked with Casamigos Tequila to put out margarita-flavored and Paloma-flavored candies. For those that want the boozy flavor but maybe not the alcohol in their candy, they’ve also got a line that includes bourbon gummies and more.
