'Smith & Sinclair' debuted a line of sweet gummy candies that are infused with vodka. While there are a number of flavored spirits that mimic the taste of candy, there are few store-bought confections that provide an alcoholic kick. These booze-infused treats provide a new way for consumers to indulge in their favorite cocktails.

The new 'Cocktail Pastilles' are sweet gummy candies inspired by alcoholic cocktails. The candies are specifically based on two iconic British cocktails: the Ruby Mule and the Long Island High Tea. The candies contain between six and eight percent ABV alcohol, which means those consuming the boozy treats will experience a subtle alcoholic kick.

While not everyone may be interested in vodka-infused candies, the Cocktail Pastilles have proven to be extremely popular with some consumers. In fact, the company recently launched a crowdfunding campaign to open the world's first edible alcohol shop.
