Drunken Gummy Bears

I know what you’re thinking…No, I am not a college student. However, some days I like to pretend I am back in the glory days of college. ;) I was looking for a fun alcohol treat to bring tailgating with us last weekend, and a friend mentioned drunken gummy bears. Basically you take gummy bears, and soak them in alcohol for a day or two. The gummies swell to twice their size, and your left with an alcohol infused gummy treat. As someone who loves both gummy bears and alcohol, this was a match made in heaven.

You can use an alcohol that you please. I used cherry vodka, but any sort of flavored liquor would work well.

Gummy bears
Liquor of your choice (I used cherry vodka)

Place the gummy bears in a small container. Fill the container with liquor just to the top of the gummy bears. Allow the gummies to swim in the vodka for 24-48 hours.

Check out how big they get after soaking in the alcohol!

  1. My brother and sister are OBSESSED with gummy bears and they also happen to be college students so this post totally made me think of them. Interesting “recipe” and thanks for sharing!

  2. Oh to have this back in the college days…..Guess I will just have to pretend!

    Do you let them dry out to serve them? Don’t they get all slimy and stick together? Great idea I can’t wait to try it.

      Nope I just leave them in container and I used a tiny pair of tongs (they’re made for toast) to get them out of the container. I’ve also seen people sticking a toothpick in each bear and serving it on a platter. If you leave them in the vodka for more than 24 hours, they will get kinda slimy, so don’t make them too ahead of time. Hope that helps!

  5. I myself serve them with toothpicks . The gummy bear vodka is always a treat to drink, and the vodka gummy bears are always the first topic of conversation whenever a new party begins :-) I wonder how these gummies would taste using gin? Anyone tried that?
