The ground-breaking edible cocktail gummies from Smith & Sinclair make every hour happy hour.
Once a generation, an idea is formed that’s so revolutionary, so brilliant in its simplicity and creativity, it changes the way we look at life, the universe, and everything. The pocket-friendly, alcohol-laced flavour gems from London-based ‘disruptive confectioners’ Melanie Goldsmith and Emile Sinclair just might be this generation’s groundbreaker.
Think of all the times it’s not socially acceptable to crack open a can of stout or pry the cork from a bottle of gin. Unless you’re donning a particularly discrete flask, it can be hard to combine happy hour with your daily commute on the MTR or bus, and there’s nothing worse than warm mixers and room-temperature pinot gris when you’re stuck at your desk watching the rest of the world revel through the window. Yes, we know, first-world problems, but even first-world problems require a first-world solution, and the alcoholic cocktail gummies from Smith & Sinclair, now available in Hong Kong, just might be it.
These are essentially gummy candies laced with ABV5% alcohol from premium spirits, as well as a few innovative flavours from fresh fruit and herbs, creating classic cocktails that are taken in one delicious bite (actually they recommend two). The range, each of which features 10 gummies, includes Gin Obsessed, with Cherry Bramble, Elderflower Spritz, Hibiscus Negroni, and Gin & Tonic; and The Night In, with Spicy Margarita, Cosmopolitan, Pina Colada, and Tequila Slammer.

Never let a lack of refrigeration, glassware, or etiquette stand in the way of a good time again.
