Is it too early to say we’re beginning to feel just a little bit Christmassy? Maybe, but it’s also kind of true.
Maybe it’s because it’s properly getting cold now and the nights are closing in or maybe it’s just because we’re less than two months away(!). But whatever the reason, we have to admit getting wind of Smith & Sinclair’s new alcoholic cocktail gummies, which are the first of their kind, has only furthered our desire to get fully into the festive (AKA party) spirit.
The brand, which produces amazing Willy Wonka-esque inventions for grown-ups, have launched five new selection boxes – Gin Obsessed, Night in, After Dinner, Party and Celebration – and they will make perfect pressies, if you can resist keep them all for yourself.
Packaged in eye-catching coloured boxes (we love the font), each features a range of gummy flavours like Mocha Espresso Martini with coffee sugar and Elderflower Spritz with thyme sugar. The new flavours will be mixed with previous bestselling flavours that the brand is already known for like Berry Daiquiri and Gin & Tonic.
Salivating? Us too.
Managing Director, Melanie Goldsmith, said of the products: ‘We created the world’s first Alcoholic Cocktail Gummies in 2014 to provide adults with an exciting new way to consume and enjoy alcohol. Since then we have been experimenting with new flavours and recipes to continue to push boundaries and provide people, who demand more than the ordinary, with our unique innovations in food and drink.’
Smith & Sinclair recommend consuming the gummies specifically in two bites for ‘maximum enjoyment’ (note taken). The vegan sweets contain the equivalent of ½ shot of alcohol so they’re a little punchy at 7% – however they make a perfect substitute for an actual cocktail whether it’s before, after or during a party.
Just remember one thing though: always eat responsibility.
