Tailgate Recipes: Drunk Gummi Bears

Ingredients:
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.

  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.
