Sugarfina: Candy + Cocktails - YES, Please!

The Swoo Crew loves a good cocktail, which is why we installed a mini-fridge to hold plenty of champs and rose’ for impromptu brainstorming sessions and photo shoots! More importantly, we love discovering new tasty cocktail recipes, particularly during this time of year when the weather is warm and cold cocktails can just hit the spot on a patio or at a party with friends. 

So, let’s just say, when we discovered our fav luxury candy brand, Sugarfina, their cocktail inspired candies were the perfect reason for us to get brainstorming {insert happy hour now!}. 

We set out on a mission to create tasty cocktails that could be paired with these cocktail gummies for the perfect duo to serve at your next adult celebration! We chose four of our favorites and best-selling flavors: Sugarfina’s Bourbon Bears, Rose’ Roses, Bubbly Bears and Peach Bellini, for inspiration to recreate yummy cocktails for your next occasion!

Keep reading how you can bring the WOW factor to your next celebration with delicious cocktails and oh-so irresistible gummies!
