Gummy bears – the universally adored sweet, once a staple of the fabled ’1 penny’ selection (which no longer exists due to the topsy turvy financial world in which we live). Things were much simpler back then. But now, it’s time to reignite the childish love for gummy bears, but inject a slightly more adult theme. And by ‘a slightly more adult theme’, we mean vodka.

Summer is the time of year where party hosts are always aiming to pull out the stops and provide a talking point, a focal attraction to their shindig. Gummy bears will do that.

Here’s how to make drunk gummy bears:

  • Enough gummy bears to keep you all entertained
  • A sealable container (i.e. tupperware) to hold the gummy bears
  • Enough vodka to cover the gummy bears, and then a little bit extra

Simple. It is important to add enough vodka to cover the gummy bears completely (and add a little bit extra for good measure – they swell with pride vodka)

Once you have drowned your sweet friends, it’s time for them to chill out in the fridge for a while. 5 days is recommended, although they seem to stop absorbing after 3.

After 5 days, remove your container, and bask in the alcoholic wonder that is your drunk gummy bear creation.
