Sugarfina is a candy company with a reputation for making a mean cocktail. It’s only that the cocktails are non-alcoholic, chewy and can be eaten out of a box with your fingers.

Now, in anticipation of Cinco de Mayo, Sugarfina has found its beach with a new collection of Corona Light gummy candies, complete with a garnish of tart, candy lime wedges. The company announced the new products—which are currently available for pre-order—on Monday.

The cerveza-themed candies are imported from Germany and can be purchased in a variety of combinations. Go for the whole shebang with the three-piece Corona Light Candy Bento Box, which comes with two plastic cubes—one filled with beer-flavored, bottle-shaped gummies, the other filled with green, wedge-shaped, sugar-coated lime gummies—and a lime wedge bottle opener, to “get the party started and keep it going long after the candies are all gone.”

The beer and lime gummy flavors are also available individually, in standard boxes ($7.50), in 2.5-pound bags ($40) and in tasting packets ($2.50).

This isn’t the first time Sugarfina has partnered with a major alcohol brand. In addition to generic booze candy offerings—including rosé, bourbon and Cuba Libre options—it already offers margarita and paloma gummies, made with George Clooney’s Casamigos tequila. The company’s Champagne Bears are made with Dom Pérignon champagne.

So if you’re trying to eat beer for dessert, or if you’re looking for the perfect goodie bag gift for your margarita party, place your pre-order ASAP for delivery before May 5th.
