A treat for adults only…no kids!

Standard

We do a lot of entertaining over the summer… I think the combination of john and I both being on holidays for the summer, and the fact that we have a pool means we get a lot of visitors. Which is a big part of our decision to buy our house. So I think I will share some of the things I have been trying for entertaining this year…I am all about preparing things ahead of time. I really try to avoid being stuck in the kitchen, missing the party. Here is something I tried yesterday that was sooo easy, unique, and delicious.

My biggest weakness, bar none, is candies. So when I saw this I had to try it!
Please note…these candies are for adults only. I had to save some in a separate bowl for the kids to eat.
Basically you need gummy bears and vodka.

Here’s where it gets tricky… Pour the vodka into the gummy bears and leave it… I even poured the vodka right into the container…That’s it. I tried a couple after about 5 minutes, they tasted pretty good…strong. But after I let them sit overnight, they soaked up all of the excess vodka. I ended up adding about a cup and a half of vodka in total! They did get a little sticky, and slimy, so I spread them out on a tray…

I just passed out them out like that, but if I wanted to be fancy, I could serve them like this…

I had some left over and i have added a little more vodka a little bit at a time, and they are still soaking it up! They are very slimy and sticky though…next time I am going to serve them with some fancy tooth picks…
