While spooky spirits are visiting your home on Halloween, the adults can enjoy a pleasant potion! The “Gummy Bear Sangria” is the perfect drink to celebrate your evening.
1 1/2 cup of gummy bears
1 1/2 cup of vodka
1 bottle of white wine
1 cup of apple juice
1/2 – 1 cup fizzy 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. Now, cover the container and let them soak at room temperature for eight hours or overnight.
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 boozy!
In a large pitcher or punch bowl, combine your drunken bears, wine, apple juice, 1/2 cup of fizzy water, apples, limes and stir. Taste and add more fizzy water, if desired. Chill and add ice for serving. Serve with lime slices and wooden skewers topped with gummy bears. Cheers!
