Gummy Bear Cocktail Recipes

There is always room for Jell-O!!!

Last week I mentioned that I was going to infuse Gummy Bears for a trip down the river, and a wonderful mistake happened. I will be giving both Gummy Bear Cocktail Recipes. It proves there are no mistakes!!!! Just Jell-O :)

Drunken Gummy Bears:

Ingredients:

  • 1 (750 ml) bottle Banana Vodka
  • 48 oz. Bag Gummy Bears
  • 8 oz. White Cranberry Juice

Instructions:
Fill a glass or ceramic container (container with a lid is ideal) about halfway with gummy bears. Then fill the container with vodka and white cranberry juice till the top of the gummy bears. The ratio of vodka to juice is 3:1. Allow the gummies to swim in the vodka for 24 hours in the refrigerator.  If you leave them in the vodka for more than 24 hours, they will get slimy and bloated, so don’t make them too ahead of time. Serve with tooth picks. If you have liquid left behind from the soaking, you have great tasting infused vodka….Drunken Gummy Martinis!!! Or Drunken Gummy Bear Snow Cones (my favorite).

Hint:
The soaking time may vary due to the type of candy. If you have stale gummy bears work great!!!! And you can use rhum if you prefer. You can use other gummy candies.

Be careful when eating these adult vodka soaked candies. It’s very difficult to estimate how much alcohol one consumes per gummy bear.

The first batch I made a mistake by not storing the batch in the refrigerator. Also, I had them soaking for three days where it started to dissolve.

EUREKA….. I had an idea!!!!
SPIKED GUMMI BEAR JELLO SHOTS :)

I let the batch sit for an additional two days (5days total). Then, I placed batch in a food processor and made gummy syrup. Be careful to lay newspapers down when working with syrup.

Then, place gummy batch in a food processor and blend till gummy bear syrup is the end result. Place in container at room temperature.

Boil two cups of water and remove from heat and pour into a heat-proof pitcher. Add box of Jell-O into hot water and stir till it completely dissolves. Mix in three cups of gummy bear syrup into pitcher. Pour batch into 2 oz. plastic cups then cover and transfer cups into refrigerator overnight. Chill until firm.
