As another long weekend approaches, we’re looking for ways to unwind. Some will be heading out of town and others are looking forward to that first sip of alcohol after work. If you too are one to drink after a long day, try these sweet snacks infused with your favorite liquors. You’ll satisfy both your alcohol and sugar cravings. They might not get you intoxicated but they are great treats for when you’re at home reading a book or on the road to the beach this weekend.
Honest Junk is one of the local food brands trying to make an impact in terms of healthier alternatives to snacks. I’m sure you’ve seen their pink guava gummies and cinnamon zooper cookies on your social media feeds. Aside form their regular items they now sell adult only gummy bears that are spiked with alcohol. Perfect for munching on while watching a movie at home, try their Tequila Sunrise, Margarita, and Long Island Iced Tea gummies.
Where to get them: Every Sunday at the Legaspi Market
If ice cold treats are more your speed, try these popsicles from Liq My Stick. All of their products are 100 percent plant-based, low in saturated fat, and filled with antioxidants. They also work with local suppliers and use organic produce whenever possible. They whip up fruits, veggie, and even liquor-infused pops. If you ever catch them at the Legaspi Sunday Market try their Pinoy Piña Colada, which is a blend of Tagaytay pineapple, coconut crème, and Don Papa Rum.
Are you a fan of homemade s’mores? Make them adult-friendly with Brownie Bar’s spiked marshmallows. Turn your childhood snack into your weekend reprieve. In addition to their brownie bars and brownie bitters, they now make spiked marshmallows, which you can eat on its own, on top of brownies, or in s’mores. Try their many flavors like Brown Sugar Bourbon, Dark Chocolate Rum, Gin & Tonic, and Irish Cream. Use them straight from the bag or torch them for an added layer of crunch.
Cake Shots got it right with their IG bio: “Adding a zing to your sugary treats.” Like we needed more reason to eat cupcakes to begin with. They do sell whole cakes that are infused with alcohol but why not try all their flavors by ordering some of their cupcakes instead. Get your sugar and alcohol fix with their Black Label Chocoholic, Coconut Daquiri, or Bailey’s Red Velvet.
