Gummy Bear Shot Recipe

Gummy Bear Shot Recipe

Candies like the classic multi-colored gummy bears are timeless favorites. Their sweet, juicy, and fruity flavors must’ve made your childhood fun and memorable. Now, the Gummy Bear Shot allows you to enjoy all of these familiar flavors with an interesting twist. 

What Does A Gummy Bear Shot Taste Like?

Interestingly, the gummy bear shot itself doesn’t contain gummy bears at all but is actually a mix of different beverages such as cherry vodka, lemon-lime soda, peach schnapps liqueur, and pineapple juice, which all create a good, gummy-like flavor. Experimenting with other fruit-flavored vodkas can recreate other familiar gummy bear flavors like raspberry, orange, pineapple, or strawberry. To complement the shot, actual gummy bears are usually added as a garnish, adding more flavor and appeal to the cocktail.  

Another variation is called the white gummy bear shot. It uses the same ingredients except for pineapple juice, which is replaced by Sweet and Sour Mix, and it specifically uses raspberry vodka.
