Drunk Gummies

If you like Drunk Gummies you may also like White Russian Chocolate Pudding or Margarita Jello Shots Served in Lime Wedges and Watermelon Punch served in a Watermelon!
I typically stay away from refined sugars (they make me itchy) but while I was recently visiting my sister I saw a tray of gummy bears in her fridge. When I asked why she kept gummies in the fridge she replied "because they are drunk". I had to give them a try. They were great, you don't even taste the vodka!

Drunken Gummies are super easy to make. All you need are two ingredients: Vodka and Gummy Bears!! Simply put the gummies in a baking dish or Tupperware, cover them in vodka and leave them in the fridge for about a week. As you can see below the gummy on the right has a nice swollen belly full of vodka.

*Please note this recipe includes alcohol and is intended only for adults over the age of 21. Please don't eat these and drive, operate heavy machinery or text.

Just read in the paper that this is the new way teens are getting drunk. And parents don't notice when the vodka is hardly missing....so be careful!

A drug counselor spoke to our school faculty about the new rage of these for teens!

sue said...

I think you could use any hard liquor. I kept my gummies in the frig for three Weeks! They were quite tasty!! for spring I am going to try the butterfly gummies:)

Laura said...

Fabulous and WAY easier than making jello shots (uh, I think I just had a college flashback). Glad I found you via pinterest :)

I have to try this. Drunk Gummies LOL:)

Do the gummy bears get "gooey"? Are they still solid when you pick them up?

Mrs. D said...

My gummies were a little sticky, but they stay solid.

Tristyn said...

Do you use an entire bottle of Vodka? or just until the gummy bears are saturated in the alcohol?

Mrs. D said...

Just enough Vodka to cover them.

k24d said...

Want to try this, but my event is tomorrow....do u think the gummies will be drunk enough in 24hrs?

Mrs. D said...

I am not sure how much they will absorb in 24 hrs. Give it a try and let me know how it goes. Maybe they will just be buzzed gummies instead of drunk ;)

k24d said...

Haha ok I will give it a whirl!

How many gummies do you need to eat? Like how strong are they?

Nicohow said...

I use haribo gummy bears , pour them in the glass tub and pour vodka or coconut rum and fill the glass tub til it just covers the gummy bears. Don't touch them for at least five days. They will not be ready.
This is great to do with gummy worms as well. Swedish fish was a fail. You can do this with any form of liquor just remember this gummy bears are little shots of what ever you pour in there and also fruit flavored. Enjoy

Do you drain any excess liquid, if there is any, when you serve them?

Hmmmm just may be the way to take coconut rum on my cruise!

I just made them with whipped vodka for super bowl Sunday! Can't wait to try them.

This is awesom!

Do you think Putting them in the freezer would help? I wanna have these ready for super bowl

Mrs. D said...

I think freezing would slow down the process...

lauren said...

after they soaked did you put them on a plate or tray or anything to dry out so they weren't slimy when you picked them up?

Mrs. D said...

The gummy bears were a little sticky, I didn't do anything to dry them out after they soaked.

Gonna have to try these. They look yummy

Stacey said...

How were the drunken gummie's made with Whipped?

Anonymous said...

mine turned into a complete slimy mess

Mine worked great! We put them in a flat tupperware container and used enough vodka to cover them, then put the lid on and put them in the fridge. We shook it every once in a while to make sure every bear was getting an equal amount of the vodka. They were a little slimy but overall tasted great! It only took 24hrs. so fun and easy! thanks for the idea!

Amanda Sublett said...

I have made them and put them in the freezer instead of fridge... this way, when I took them out a few days later, they had absorbed the coconut run and vodka (I made two bowls, but were NOT slimy or sticky

YUM

binks said...

Gummies with the Whipped Vodka is the BEST!!

MissyG said...

Do they need to be refrigerated once they are done absorbing the liquor? Going away and wondering how they'll stay in a sealed tuperware container but not kept cool....

Thanks!!

Mrs. D said...

@MissyG my sister just traveled with them and they started to melt and clump together. So keeping them cold is best. Maybe put a freezer pack in with them....

BrandyE said...

I tried but missed the part about putting them in the fridge, they got all slimy and all melted together. I am trying again.

Anonymous said...

Hi! When you go to eat these, are they slimy or gooey at all?

Anonymous said...

You don't want to put vodka in plastic. it eats at the plastic and makes it poisonous. You only want to use glass or metal.

Cakemama8 said...

What in the world is whipped Vodka???
As for those that received a slimy result, maybe it is the brand of Gummies you used? Just sayin...

Jodili said...

Did anyone leave it for only a few days? I have a party on friday and am not sure if it would be worth trying if they won't be ready, what about the freezer??

Rochelle said...

how would you dry them out?

Anonymous said...

do you have to eat alot of them to feel buzzed?

Anonymous said...

Can you use Swedish Fish instead?

I have my gummies in the freezer as we speak. I put them in on Monday evening and need them for a party on Friday. I tried them frozen and they are really hard and don't taste that great. I was thinking about defrosting them Friday morning, what do you think?

Kim said...

I put the gummies in the vodka and into the fridge on a friday night, and by sunday night they had sorta mushed together in a blob. I was able to separate them for the most part with a spoon and then put them back in the bowl with some fresh vodka. I think they need a good jiggle rather frequently. I was using Brach's gummy bears. They are somewhat slimey. Good luck!

i think a 6lb bag is 6-7 usd at costco also if they are a lil slimey/sticky after the freezer you could prob sprinkle sugar or powdered sugar on them to be less sticky and coat them a little. just a thought

Gummies of any kinda are incredibly high in carbs and sugar, and you are adding booze to them?!

(31g carbs and 21g sugar in 17 Haribo gummy bears)

You are some brave ladies.....

nicolesprinkle said...

I just made gummy body parts and worms for halloween!

Anonymous said...

I've done this before, it worked out great. The trick is to use the Hairabo (might've got the spelling wrong) bears, not a store brand and to stir them once a day to prevent the bears clumping too much. Definitely use a flavored vokda for best results because the bears will lose their natural flavoring because of the alcohol.

"Whipped" is a new flavor of vodka.

Anonymous said...

wonder how fruit flavored snacks would work

Mrs. D said...

Fruit snacks sounds like a fun option, let me know how they come out!
