Vodka Gummy Bears


There's really nothing else to say other than these are oh so great and always a party hit. You should make them. Now. And I totally give credit to Wendy, my most favorite Guatemalan on the planet, for introducing these to me. I don't think my life would have ever been complete without them, or her for that matter.

You'll Need

1 glass bowl with airtight lid.
Gummy Bears - how much is up to you.
Bottle of Vodka.
Fruit Punch.

DAY 1:  

You can use as many bags of gummy bears as you'd like. In this case, I used two. It later proved not to be enough.. they are so addictive! And don't skimp on the bears.. buy the good stuff like Haribo, not the cheapo bargain bin kind. Blech.

Bears in the bowl, then drown those babies with vodka. You'll want to pour the vodka in to just above the surface of the bears.
Stir, stir, stir, put the lid on and stick it in the fridge.
This ends Day 1.

DAY 2:

Its now the next morning and you'll want to check in on your little bears. By now some of the vodka has been absorbed by the bears. They had themselves a little party!  Stir them up and top them off with a little more vodka, and stir again.  Put the lid back and and stick them back in the fridge.

At the end of your day, you'll want to stir them again.

DAYS 3 thru 5 (or 6):

Repeat the AM and PM stirring every day. Its preferable for your entire bear soaking process to run a full week.. but if you are short a day or so, its not the end of the world.  

The night before your big day, you'll want to top the bears off with some fruit punch. Don't forget to stir, cover and place back in the fridge.  The next morning you'll stir and by evening you'll get to enjoy the yummy beary goodness.  There will likely be liquid still in the bowl.  Drain the bears out and drink it damn it!

 Mmmmm behold, bears drowned in vodka.
