If you’re looking to add a fun twist to your cocktails, why not incorporate gummy candies into the mix? Gummy cocktails bring a burst of flavor and a playful element to your drink, creating a unique and memorable experience. In this post, we will explore how to mix candy and drinks to create delicious gummy cocktails.

  1. Gummy Infusions: One way to incorporate gummy flavors into your cocktails is by infusing gummies in alcohol. Choose gummies that complement your desired flavor profile and place them in a jar with your favorite spirit. Allow the gummies to infuse for a couple of days, and then strain the mixture to remove any remnants. You now have a delicious gummy-infused alcohol that can be used in a variety of cocktails.
  2. Garnishes: Another way to incorporate gummies into your cocktails is by using them as garnishes. Skewer gummy bears, worms, or other gummies on toothpicks or cocktail picks, and place them in your drink. Not only do they add a visually appealing touch, but they also impart a hint of flavor as they soak in the cocktail.
  3. Gummy Syrups and Purees: Transform gummy candies into syrups or purees to incorporate into your cocktail recipes. Heat gummies with a small amount of water until they melt, creating a syrup-like consistency. Stir the mixture to ensure it blends well. You can also blend gummies with a bit of water to make a puree. These syrups and purees can be added to your favorite cocktails to infuse them with sweet, fruity flavors.
  4. Flavored Rims: Give your cocktail glass a sweet and colorful touch by rimming it with crushed gummy candies. Dip the rim of the glass in a simple syrup or citrus juice, and then roll it in crushed gummy candies. The rim will add a pop of flavor and a whimsical touch to your drink.
  5. Gummy Martini Skewers: Skewer gummy candies on a cocktail pick or skewer and perch them on the rim of your martini glass. This not only adds a playful element to your drink, but as you sip, the gummies will infuse the cocktail with their flavors.

Remember to have fun and experiment with different gummies and cocktail recipes. Get creative with flavors, colors, and presentation to take your gummy cocktails to the next level. Whether you’re hosting a themed party or simply want to enjoy a whimsical drink, gummy cocktails are a delightful and tasty choice. Cheers to adding a fun twist to your cocktail experience!
