Drunken Gummy Bears

Gummy Bears for Grown-Ups?  Count me in.  I've seen some crazy "cocktails" on Pinterest and other places.  Everything from vodka flavored with Skittles to popsicles with champagne poured over them.  I think we've established by now that Mr. Devilish Dish and I like to have a good time.  We tailgate A LOT.  Football, baseball.  Um I've even been known to have a fun in a golf course parking lot.  And that's a stretch. Hanging out in a golf course parking lot is only slightly more fun than watching paint dry.  That being said, if there's a fun, simple treat that I can take to share with my friends, that is easy to transport, then I'm all over it.  I've been waiting for the perfect occasion to try out these goofy gummy bears.  Opening Day for College Baseball seems like an ideal celebration!
Yes:  they are the life of the party!
We didn't serve them in a glass really.
We just passed around the plastic container.
And some handy-wipes.  Because they
are sticky.  (But worth it!)
Disclaimer:  I'm not responsible for what
happens if you eat too many of these.
Look how much they "grow" in the vodka...

Be safe!
Have fun!
Try it with gummy worms next time!

Drunken Gummy Bears

1 package gummy bears
Vodka (enough to cover them)
container with a lid that seals well
fun friends

Place gummy bears in container.  Pour vodka in, just over the top of the gummy bears.  You just want them covered.  Place lid on container.  Let sit overnight or longer.  Enjoy!

NOTE:  I put my container in the fridge over night, and just flipped it over a couple of times to make sure all of the gummy bears were nice and soaked.  I've had people tell me they don't even bother refrigerating, and that they have soaked them for several days. 

Prep Time:  Approximately 5 minutes     Cook Time:  0 needs to sit 24 hours
