Jello shots are a delicious and effective way to get the party started. They are a pain in the ass to make, and they are also cliche. Even some bars offer jello shots.
Vodka gummies are simple to make, look cool, and are delicious.
To make vodka gummies, here’s what you need:
- vodka (I use Costco’s Kirkland Vodka, which is the same as Grey Goose; Smirnoff works, too);
- gummy bears (get an economy size, as once you make these, you will always want to have them);
- a container to put the gummy bears in (something like this is great, as the lid seals, making your gummies portable);
- a container to put the finished gummies in (3 oz. solo cups from your grocery store work, although these are better).
How many gummies and how much vodka do you need? There’s no need to screw with ratios or measuring cups. The recipe is simple, “You need enough vodka to cover the gummies.”
Here’s what you do:
- Put the gummy bears in a plastic container, mixing bowl, or zip-lock bag;
- Cover the gummies with vokda;
- Put the gummies in fridge;
- Leave the gummies in fridge for 2-5 days (the longer you leave them in there, the fattie the little bears will get);
- Mix the gummies once or twice each day.
After a few days, line your gummies up like the voka-bearing bear soldiers that they are.
If you have left overs, great. Put them in a zip-lock bag and throw them into the freezer. The vodka gummies will remain fresh for months if not years.
When you bring a girl to your place, instead of offering her a glass of wine (yawn) or a shot (too obvious that you’re trying to get her wasted), ask her, “Ever have a vodka gummy? I have some leftover from a party.”
Even if the girl is “too sophisticated” and “over my partying days” to take a shot, she will not be able to resist the gummies. (It’s candy, after all.)
Once you start making these, you will want to keep your freezer stocked indefinitely.
