Tailgate Recipes: Drunk Gummi Bears

750 ml Vodka
3lb bag Gummi Bears
2 cups Fruit Punch

Step 1 - Grab your favorite vodka and a bag of gummi bears. I used a 3lb bag of Haribo Bears, but you can use a different kind. I would experiment and see what brand you like best. I contemplated using flavored vodka but ended up just using regular vodka. Again I would start with plain and then experiment with different flavors based on personal preference. 

Step 2 - Soak your bears. Make sure to soak the bears in a glass bowl with a lid. (I've found that a crockpot bowl works really well.) No matter what size bag of gummi bears you use, the vodka should cover all of them completely. Place in your refrigerator 3-5 days, the longer the better. Stir the bears every day, breaking them apart because they will try to stick together. I soaked my bears for 5 days. Day 4,  I added 2 cups of fruit punch to cut the vodka taste. Drain the bears of all liquid before serving. There shouldn't be too much liquid left. Your bears will be noticeably bigger. 

*WARNING - Contains alcohol, please use responsibly and legally. 


  1. Thanks so much for posting this! I've been wanting to try this, and my boyfriend and I were concerned that the vodka would be too strong. We're definitely gonna try adding the fruit punch.

    1. Hi Jennifer! Thanks for the comment. Yes, the fruit punch really makes a difference. Cheers.
