Gummy Bear Jello Shots

It used to take days to make Vodka Gummy Bears with the old method. During this time, bears had to be drank with vodka, covered with foil and kept in the refrigerator for a couple of days. We’re lucky now that we can do it easily and quickly. If gummy bears are soaked in vodka, the alcohol is absorbed, and they become a delicious fruity flavored vodka gummy bear.

This tasty treat can be made in a shorter time, and is easy to make. It is also very easy to do, and the bears come out a bit more firm and less slimy. Just 10-15 minutes are required to prepare the gummies and put them During the rest of that time, you are letting them soak while you prepare something fun to do. It has never turned gooey or been small for me, but this is based on my experience with the Haribo brand (linked above). Their work with Svedka, Smirnoff, and Absolut has been excellent. If you’re just going to drink vodka for a few hours, you don’t need something super expensive because you won’t be tasting it much. I do not believe this project calls for top shelf vodka.
