Here's How You Can Take Part in the Boozy Candy Craze

by Sonie Guseh on Sep 30, 2016 in Liquor
If your sweet tooth is craving some tasty treats, especially with Halloween just a stone’s throw away—there are some fun ways to get your sugar and booze fix while out on the town or enjoying a night in. Liquor-infused candies are on the rise (just check out all the creative results that come from a Google search of “boozy candy”) and these sweets make the perfect party treat.
 
Here are some delectable ideas to get you started:
 
This 5-ingredient recipe from Sugar and Cloth calls for a mix of clear rum and tequila, but you can use your liquor of choice.

Sugarfina, an adult candy store, offers a dainty box of gummy bears infused with Whispering Angel Rosé for $8.50. The store also features Champagne-infused gummies  and tons of other boozy treats. You can order their sweets online or visit one of their stores located across the country.
 
If you prefer to experience your liquor-infused candies while out, and happen to be in NYC the rooftop bar at the Monarch Lounge in Midtown Manhattan is currently offering Sugar Rush specials, a sweet daily  menu of:
 
Tipsy Teddy Bears: gummy bears soaked in bubbly
Rummy Worms: gummy worms soaked in rum and paired with a Mojito
Fish out of Water: Vodka-soaked Swedish Fish in blue Jell-O shots
 
Or try making your own with the recipe ideas below, courtesy of Monarch:
