Cocktail Gummy Bears

2017-09-08

Ingredients

  • Cocktail Gummy Bear:
  • Any Standard 3½ - 5oz. Cocktail Recipe, plus
  • ½ oz. Water
  • 1 Tbsp. unflavored Gelatin Powder
  • 2 tsp. Sorbitol Powder
  • 1-2 drops Food Coloring (optional)

  • *May substitute ⅛ tsp. Citric Acid for any Lime or Lemon juice.

  • Most any Spirit or Liqueur:
  • 4 oz. Spirit or Liqueur
  • ½ oz. Water
  • 1 Tbsp. unflavored Gelatin Powder
  • 2 tsp. Sorbitol Powder
  • 1-2 drops Food Coloring (optional)

  • Add cocktail ingredients, water, gelatin, sorbitol, and any food coloring to a medium sauce pot. Over the lowest heat, stir constantly until the gelatin is dissolved (3-5 minutes). Do not boil. Remove from the heat and fill silicone gummy bear molds. Let sit on the countertop for 30 minutes. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours. Unmold prior to serving. Mix a few drops of mineral oil to the finished Gummy Bears to prevent them from sticking to each other. Yields about 100 Bears. Best when consumed within 2-3 weeks.

Turn your favorite cocktail or spirit into a delightful alcoholic gummy bear! It’s quite simple, just follow our instructions and you’ll be on your way! Make yourself a Negroni Gummy Bear or, alternately, pop a Gin Gummy Bear, Campari Gummy Bear, and Sweet Vermouth Gummy Bear onto your tongue and you’ll mix the cocktail in your mouth with each chew. The only downside of alcohol and the gelatin/sorbitol backbone which form gummy bears is that ethanol binds very poorly with the sugar-alcohol/collagen matrix. Thus, the alcohol easily evaporates from the gummy bears, leading to a mere 2-3 week shelf life. Of all the curses which plague humankind, this weak affinity is perhaps the worst, meaning you’ll need to consume these tasty beauties within 2 weeks, and keep them in an airtight container until then. But give it a go, its fun and delicious! Cheers!
