Satisfy Your Cravings with Tequila- Spiked Caramel Corn

Movie nights and Netflix premieres call for popcorn, but not just any popcorn — tequila-spiked caramel corn. The booze coated treat is sweetened with agave nectar and made extra crunchy with roasted peanuts. Time spent snacking on the couch will never be the same.


  • 16 cups of popped popcorn
  • 1 cup salted roasted peanuts
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 stick butter
  • 2 tablespoons corn syrup
  • 3 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1/2 tablespoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon Pura Vida Blanco Tequila


  • In a pot over medium heat, mix brown sugar, butter, agave and corn syrup to make caramel syrup. Then, toss in salt and stir.
  • Boil for 4 minutes on medium, stirring occasionally to keep the bottom from burning.
  • Add in tequila and baking soda, and stir.
  • In a bowl, mix popcorn and peanuts.
  • Then, pour tequila-caramel syrup over popcorn. Make sure to coat popcorn evenly.
  • Lay coated popcorn on a baking sheet and bake at 250°F for one hour.
  • Once done, let it cool slightly and serve.
