Ingredients for Gummy Bear Shots

To create the perfect gummy bear vodka shot, you’ll need to gather a handful of ingredients. 

  • First and foremost, you’ll need Gummy Bears – choose your favorites or mix and match for a colorful display.
  • You’ll also need Cherry Vodka, which acts as the base for the shot. Raspberry Vodka will work too if you are in a pinch. 
  • Peach Schnapps
  • Pineapple Juice – We stock our bar with little cans of pineapple juice. Since this Gummy Bear Shot Recipe call for only ½ ounce, it cuts down on waste. One 6 oz. pineapple juice can covers 12 shots. 
  • Lemon Lime Soda – This is to top off the shot. It adds a little fizz and sweetness. Sprite or 7up soda work great. 

Finally, you’ll need shot glasses to serve your creations in. Also, how can you resist these cute cocktail umbrellas

Once you have all your ingredients, it’s time to shake up some vodka shots and get the party started!

To get started add ice, cherry vodka, peach schnapps, and pineapple juice to a cocktail shaker. Shake for a few seconds.

That’s it! All that is left to do is shoot! 

Variations to Try

To keep things interesting, switch up your gummy bear vodka shots by experimenting with different flavors and colors. 

  • Instead of using cherry vodka, try using flavored vodka such as blueberry, raspberry, or lemon. 
  • To create colorful shots, mix and match different gummy bear flavors and colors. 
  • Swap out the pineapple juice for sweet & sour mix and you have a White Tea Shot

Presentation Tips

Now that you’ve mastered the art of creating the perfect gummy bear vodka shot, it’s time to focus on presentation. The way you present your shots can make a huge difference in how they are received, and with a little creativity, you can turn a simple shot into a work of art.

One of the easiest ways to elevate your presentation is to use different types of glasses. Instead of using standard shot glasses, consider using mini cocktail glasses, vintage glassware, or unique shot glasses. 

To recreate the Gummy Bear Umbrella Garnish you will pierce the gummy bear at an angle through its neck and slide him up the umbrella pole. And those are the gory details. 

You can also experiment with adding additional or different garnishes. Instead of an umbrella use a stick of rock candy, or even sugar around the rim of the glass. Another option would be to use gummy worms or cannabis gummies.

Another way to enhance your presentation is to play with color. You can use specific colors of gummy bears for your shots to match the theme of your party or event. For example, you could add orange and black gummy bears for a Halloween party or red and green for a Christmas party. 

Remember, the key to a successful presentation is to experiment and have fun. The possibilities are endless, and with a little creativity, you can turn a simple shot into a visually stunning masterpiece.
