These Alcohol Gummy Bears (or as I’m calling them Rummy Cherries) are a fun adult treat for summer entertaining. They are easy to make and delicious too!

Happy Friday! I’m currently on my way to Vermont to attend a little house warming party for a friend who recently bought a home up there. My friends and I packed into a car yesterday to make the 9+ hour trip. (I’m actually writing this post on Wednesday, so let’s hope the trip went well.)

Anyway, in addition to some of my Out-of-this-World Corn Dip, I thought I’d make a fun treat to bring to the party. Since it’s hard to travel with cocktails, I decided to concoct an alcoholic treat of a different kind.

If you’ve been following IBC for a while now, you may remember I posted about Rummy Bears / Worms (or in our family, Wurms) in a Weekend Wanderlust last year.

Basically, you soak gummy candy in alcohol for about 24 hours. So simple, totally delicious, and a really fun for any party.

Any gummy candy will do. We’ve used gummy bears, gummy worms, gummy coke bottles, and now gummy cherries. You can also use any kind of alcohol; I’ve used rum and vodka. Based on my experience, I think the vodka is a bit stronger tasting than the rum. However, some folks prefer that. One of my favorite combinations is gummy coke bottles and cherry rum. They are like little Cherry Cokes.

If you’re wondering where to get unique gummy candy, check your local super market or super store. I also just discovered that Amazon sells them in five pound bags. Sweet!

Anyway, I’m going to give you a recipe, but they are pretty self-explanatory.

That’s it!


We'll email this post to you, so you can come back to it later! Plus, I'll send you more inspiring ideas I think you'll love!

These do have a short shelf life, so you’ll want to eat them up at the party. FYI: If you leave them in the sun, they will melt. If this happens and you put them in the refrigerator, they will turn into one large, jar-shaped gummy.

As you can guess, your friends and family are going to get a kick out of them. Give them a try and let me know what flavor combination you like the best in the comments below.

Also, I know this goes without saying, but these are an adult treat and should not be consumed by anyone under the legal drinking age.

All right, I think that’s enough for today. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! See you back here on Monday when I’ll be revealing my little antique dresser makeover.

  • 1 cup gummy candy
  • 1 cup alcohol I used rum, but you can use whatever you’d like.


  • Add the gummy candy to a bowl.
  • Pour in enough alcohol to just cover the gummies. (About 1 cup.)
  • Let them soak for 8 hours (up to 24). Stir them occasionally to prevent them from sticking together.


These are best enjoyed right away. Want to make them ahead of time? Cover with plastic wrap and store in the refrigerator for up to two days.
You can also skewer the alcohol soaked gummies with a cocktail pick and serve them as a garnish to a cocktail.

  1. I made this before using gummy Lifesavers and vodka served on toothpicks. They were a hit and the remaining liquid made for an interesting drink!

  2. Intriguing! This idea really fascinates me (I love Weingummi) aaand the next weekend might be the perfect time to test these with friends. Thanks!
