LOS ANGELES– You had me at tequila. Sugarfina, the luxury candy boutique, has partnered with award-winning spirit brand Casamigos Tequila, to create a new collection of tequila-infused candies.
The two Southern California-based brands make perfect partners: Sugarfina is best known for innovative cocktail-inspired candies like premium Champagne Bears® and Casamigos Tequila creates ultra-premium, small-batch tequilas made from the finest, hand-selected 100% Blue Weber agaves grown in the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.
“We’re so excited to partner with our Malibu neighbor, Casamigos Tequila, to create Sugarfina’s first tequila-infused candies,” said Sugarfina co-founders Rosie O’Neill and Josh Resnick. “Not only is their tequila delicious, it also pairs perfectly with some of our favorite flavors like lime, grapefruit, chocolate, and smoked sea salt. Needless to say, the recipe development was a lot of fun.”
The Sugarfina x Casamigos collection features three new candies: Shake Your Margarita, a crisp, clean Blanco-infused margarita gummy with hints of lime and sweet agave; Paloma Por Favor, a juicy sour grapefruit gummy infused with Reposado and rolled in superfine sweet and tart sugar crystals; and Give It a Shot, a rich dark chocolate cordial filled with a smooth sip of Casamigos Añejo Tequila.
The candies are packaged in Sugarfina’s signature Candy Cubes™. Flavors are sold individually and also as part of the You Had Me at Tequila Candy Bento Box®, which features all three candies in a specially-designed Sugarfina x Casamigos gift box. For the sweetest cocktail hour, the Candy + Tequila Bento Box® pairs the three candies with mini bottles of Casamigos Blanco, Reposado and Añejo tequilas, making the perfect gift for a tequila lover.
As part of the collaboration, Sugarfina will also introduce a new You Had Me at Tequila chocolate bar featuring the finest spiced 64% dark chocolate topped with smoked sea salt, the perfect flavor pairing with Casamigos Añejo Tequila.
