Gummy Bear Shot Ingredients
Gummy Bear Shot Preparation
- Mix all the ingredients together in a shaker.
- Serve in a shot glass.
- Float a gummy bear in the drink as a garnish.
Not sweet enough? Here’s a version that’s closest to a jelly shot. Be careful with the gummy bears, though, you might end up eating a lot of vodka-spiked gummy bears than drinking a vodka gummy bear shot.
Do not add too many gummy bears as they soak up the alcohol. For a 1.5oz shot, add 3oz vodka and 2 gummy bears so you have enough to mix with your shot. Be sure to plan ahead if you want to serve this drink. This one takes time, at least overnight of steeping the gummy bears in vodka.

The Rise in Fame
The gummy bear shot is an American drink that is fairly popular in the states of Michigan, Nevada, Arizona, Ohio and Colorado. Other countries that showed interest are Canada and the United Kingdom.
The gummy bear shot made a brief stint in the news when a new bartender was interviewed for a Herald.net article and she mentioned the shot as one of the new but popular drinks in their bar. What’s interesting in her recipe is instead of lemon-lime juice or soda, she used muddled lemon and lime for the shot. I’m sure the shot tastes better since muddling results in the release of volatile oils and bits of the fruit into the shot, giving it a more intense flavor and character.
The Perfect Pair
Vodka goes well with savory pancakes like this Cheddar and Scallion Savory Pancakes. It also works well with smoked fish such as Grilled Smoked Haddock with Spiced Potatoes and Spinach and Smoked Mackerel Fishcakes. Pickled vegetables are also paired well with the gummy bear shot. The crisp, sour vegetables balance the sweet shot.
