When it comes to making fancy mixed drinks, the craziest I usually get is putting Sprite in my moscato to make it fizzy. If it has more than three ingredients that means it's going to cost more than $15 and, you can kindly count me out.
Alcohol is supposed to be fun and happy, not make me face the fact that I don't know how to properly measure out vanilla extract.
Thankfully, those insanely difficult-to-make drinks are typically not anything I'd actually want to drink (other than sangria, obviously). But a new recipe has recently surfaced the interwebs that has me running to my nearest grocery store ASAP.
Three words: champagne gummy bears.
That's right, everything your weird, alcohol-infused imagination could conceive is actually happening. There's finally a classy way to enjoy alcohol and yummy kids' treats that's more than just filling your slurpee with vodka! DREAMS CAN COME TRUE.
What's even more amazing about this deliciously boozey treat is that it really isn't that hard to make, AND you only need a few ingredients to make it. So stop reading, go to the store, stock up on gummy bears, a bowl, Saran wrap, and a bottle of Champagne or Prosecco.
I'm not kidding. I'll wait.
Okay now that you've returned here's what you do to make the most amazing thing you'll probably ever create (slight exaggeration):
- Place the gummy bears in the bowl.
- Pop your bottle and pour it over the gummies, making sure to completely submerge them.
- Cover the bowl with Saran wrap and put the whole thing in the fridge overnight.
AND THAT'S ALL FOLKS. YOU'RE DONE.
But if you're feeling like you need a legitimate excuse to tell your mom or boyfriend why you've recently purchased a pound of gummies, allow me to assist you.
Options include: they were on sale, you're throwing an kids-themed adult party, you're depressed, you're the happiest you've ever been, you're going to a New Years Eve party and you're looking to spice it or you're just about to have the ultimate night in alone with your cat.
So if you had any real plans to be productive, then screw 'em.
The only thing on your to-do list tonight is to make champagne gummy bears. You're welcome.
