WHAT MAKES THIS GUMMY BEAR SHOT SO GOOD?

  • A gummy bear shot is the perfect combination of sweet and fruity! We had this at a bar once and had to recreate it! 
  • It is fun! Who doesn’t love an adult drink with a favorite childhood candy! The shot tastes just like candy, so be careful as it goes down quite easy!
  • This gummy bear shot is easy to make and perfect for any get together, party or a simple night in! Have fun experimenting with different flavors of gummy bears!

TIPS AND TRICKS FOR A GUMMY BEAR SHOT

  • Grenadine is just for color! I like the gummy bear shots to be bright red (like a gummy bear) but feel free to skip it if you don’t have any on hand. 
  • Lemon lime soda adds a bit of effervescence to cut through the strong alcohol flavor in the shot. I like to use Sprite, but feel free to use your favorite brand! 
  • Make this a mocktail but using: gummy bears, cranberry juice, peach juice and Sprite!
  • Infused gummy bears!  Take this shot to the next level but infusing your gummy bears in vodka! Simply soak bears overnight or for at least 8 hours at room temperature! I use just enough vodka to cover the bears. 
  • If you make this in your shaker, do not add soda to the shaker, pour that directly into the glass.
