After seeing this post on Gizmodo, about getting drunk off gummy bears, I had to give it a try myself! Being both, a gummy candy connoisseur, and an avid drinker, this was right up my alley. In fact, I frequently consume the two together already; albeit separate. Until now!
Reading the article on Friday night, I promptly checked my gummy candy supply. I wasn’t able to find official gummy “bears”, but I did have some gummy Lifesavers, and the classic “Swedish Fish”. I dumped a hand-full of each in a small bowl. For the gummy Lifesavers, I stuck to the plan, and filled the bowl with Svedka vodka. However, I pulled an audible on the Swedish Fish. Swedish Fish have become one of my favorite accompaniments for whiskey, so I filled their bowl with Jameson Irish whiskey! (Side note: “Sour Patch Kids” are also an excellent side dish for whiskey, creating a nice whiskey sour effect!) Both bowls were covered with some static-cling plastic wrap, and put in the fridge.
