Gummy Bear Sangria
So let’s make drunky bears and put them in sangria because we all know that gummy bears + fruit = Wow!
1 1/2 gummy bears
about 1 1/2 vodka
1 bottle white wine
1 c apple juice
1/2 to 1 carbonated water
2 large apples, sliced
1 lime, sliced, plus more for garnish
place your gummy bears in a jar or container, reserving a few to stick on top of some wooden skewers for serving. pour enough vodka in to cover your bears, cover the container, and let them soak at room temperature for eight hours, or overnight.
(…you’ll then have gummy bear infused vodka and vodka infused gummy bears and you might wonder if that’s inception or osmosis or both or neither (?))
strain the gummy bears, reserving the vodka for another use. you may even want to add some of that vodka to your sangria to make it extra extra boozy.
in a large pitcher, punch bowl, or hipster jar , combine your drunky bears, wine, apple juice, 1/2 cup fizzy water, apples, and limes, and stir. taste and add more fizzy water, if desired. chill and/or add ice for serving. serve with lime slices and wooden skewers topped with gummy bears. cheers!
