Gummy Bear Martini


Gummy Bear Martini
Gummy Bears were invented by the Haribo Company in Germany decades ago, and have since become a true confectionary classic.  In the U.S., Haribo makes 5 flavors/colors (raspberry-red, orange-orange, strawberry-green, pineapple-colorless, lemon-yellow), and have spawned other gummy shapes such as worms, spiders, Smurfs, and frogs (just to name a few).  Our cocktail highlights the Raspberry flavor, and also blends a few other tasty ingredients, to deliver a sweet treat that certainly has a little kick to it.  Feel free to mix up the ingredients to include your favorite flavors.  We hope you enjoy our featured cocktail, the Gummy Bear Martini...!!!
2 oz. Chambord (or any Raspberry liqueur)
1 oz. Vodka
1 oz. Cranberry Juice
1 oz. 7-Up
Lime Wheel for garnish
10 Gummy Bears
Combine the 3 spirits and the Cranberry Juice in an ice filled cocktail shaker.  Cover, shake well, and strain into a chilled Martini glass.  Add the chilled 7-Up, and stir.  Drop 5 Gummy Bears into the glass (an added bonus of infused treats that will be waiting for you when you finish your drink!), and skewer 5 more on a toothpick, and lay them across the rim.  Add a Lime Wheel for garnish, and have some fun with this classic candy cocktail, the Gummy Bear Martini.  Cheers!
