Blue Gummy Bear Shot Variations
Give your blue gummy bear shot a different spin with any of these suggestions.
- Shift the flavor towards a blue raspberry note by using blue raspberry vodka.
- Use a pineapple liqueur instead of peach for a summery blue gummy bear shot.
- Raspberry rum or even tequila can be used in place of raspberry vodka. You can easily use a store-bought flavor or make your own raspberry-infused spirit at home.
- Infuse your vodka with gummy bear flavor! You can use all blue gummy bears or add a mix of other flavors, too.
Garnishing a Shot
A shot doesn't always call for a garnish, but if you're looking to add a little something, these are a great start.
- Garnish the shot with a traditional blue gummy bear or punch it up with a vodka-infused gummy bear.
- Opt for a citrus flair with a lemon or lime slice or wedge.
- Pierce a raspberry or cherry on a cocktail skewer.
- Rub the rim of the glass with a citrus wedge and dip the rim into a blue sugar for an extra pop of blue.
About the Blue Gummy Bear Shot
Don't worry. There are plenty of ways to make a rainbow of gummy bear shots quickly with a simple sleight of hand. Skip the blue curaçao and use a raspberry liqueur instead for a raspberry gummy bear shot or strawberry liqueur for a strawberry flavor. Or, give the shot that air of mystery flavor by using a lemon vodka instead of raspberry and orange liqueur instead of the blue curaçao. Want a pucker? Easily use a green apple liqueur and lemon vodka with the peach liqueur.
If you're someone who prefers to sip your alcohol and you want to savor the flavor of the blue gummy bear shot, there is no need to stress. Simply turn it into a cocktail! Use a full ounce of peach liqueur with the same amount of blue curaçao and raspberry vodka, then top off with a lemon-lime soda and garnish with a blue gummy bear-- obviously.
