Many of the tutorials involved flavoured vodka, which I can imagine works super well and is defo worth trying out. I opted to hark back to my past and bought a bottle of Apple Sourz; not only does it remind me of my student days, but I’m totally addicted to that fake apple taste. I figured if I was going to make alcoholic candy, I may as well go all out and make it real classy 😉
Whilst my main batch of bears was soaking in that, I also tried a few cocktail options to see how they came out. A few lined cupcake cases work perfect if you fancy testing out a few different combinations without breaking the bank. So, all you need to do is pop your bears in a bowl or jar, put in enough booze to cover them all, clingfilm / saran wrap closed and sit them in your fridge for 2 to 3 days till the alcohol has virtually gone. I found that it was good to give them a stir each day so ensure each one got good coverage and I wasn’t left with a big gummy lump at the end!
