Fans of Austin-based Tito's Handmade Vodka, here's some sweet news. Not only can you drink your favorite craft vodka, but now you can eat it, too.
Last week, luxury candy boutique Sugarfina unveiled its new collaboration with the popular vodka brand. The Sugarfina x Tito's Handmade Vodka collection features two new candies inspired by Tito's signature cocktails, including a sweet dark chocolate cordial filled with a smooth sip of vodka and a Moscow mule-flavored gummy bear infused with vodka and a splash of ginger beer.
"As craft vodka lovers, we're excited to partner with our all-time favorite vodka brand on this grown-up candy collection," said Sugarfina co-founders Rosie O'Neill and Josh Resnick in a press release. "We're best known for our artisan cocktail candies and these new vodka-infused treats perfectly round out our top shelf collection."
Both candies come packaged in Sugarfina's signature Candy Cubes and can be purchased individually ($8.50 each) or together as part of the "Vodka Is Always a Good Idea" Candy Bento Box ($28). Also included in the bento box is a limited-edition mini hand-crafted copper mule mug.
"We were so excited when Sugarfina reached out with the idea for vodka infused candies," said Nicole Portwood, vice president of brand marketing for Tito's Handmade Vodka. "We've been experimenting with infusions for the last 20 years and this takes it to the next level."
