Alcoholic gummy bears are all the rage these days with people soaking the little bears in spirits such as Vodka and Gin. If you’re not a fan of chewing these boozy delights but still enjoy the sweet taste then this cocktail recipe could be a winner at your next party.
The beauty of this cocktail is that it’s simple to make and all you need is a classic cocktail shaker, ice, a strainer a few shot glasses and you’re all good to go.
This drink is popular among young and old drinkers as it packs a punch as well as a delightfully sweet aftertaste, but be careful, they can certainly taste like more.
The main component of the drink is Southern Comfort. The spirit is a popular choice due to its slow release of spice on the nose which is followed by sweetness and aromas of fresh red fruit.
The sweetness continues long onto the palate with a subtle hint of fruit becoming stronger, to add a kick there is a little spice hit towards the end.
This is followed by the addition of Amaretto which has a distinctive flavour of almond and marzipan. It’s not to everyone’s taste but it does work very well in this particular drink.
Grenadine and Melon Liqueur are then added, with the Grenadine used as the colour component. Finally, there is two parts orange juice and two parts pineapple juice added before it is shaken with ice and strained into the required number of shot glasses.
If you want to add a little extra touch to the drink you could drop a gummy bear into the shot glass for a bit of garnish. This could be pre-soaked in Southern Comfort or just leave it plain.
