Rosé Gummy Bears are the Best Boozy Summer Treat!

The perfect summer guilty-pleasure

Summer sucks. There. You may now call me out for my dark and dank soul. But that won’t change anything! Because summer sucksI mean, the heat, the sunburns, the sweat (I like my sweat sports-induced, thank you.)… it’s hell.
But let’s get the cliché out of the wé – ’tis the season for Rosé. Wow, I rhymed! Good God, I can never rhyme for my life! 

And you know what else sucks? Hot Rosé. And that right there is a struggle. I mean, you want to consume this pinky elixir, and yet the hideous heat and humidity just ruin it! Well, allow my science-savvy self to assist you right there: the trick is consuming Rosé in ways that the heat doesn’t affect the taste.

Hence, my newest creations: Rosé Soaked Gummy Bears.

You may be familiar with the concept – probably soaked gummies in rum or vodka during college days. But this is the adult, classy, chic version of the old life hack. Soaking gummy bears in Rosé gives you a good measure of booze, flavor, and an extra dose of tipsy.

You need:
  • 2-3 bags of HARIBO gummy bears (I took out the green ones, just cause the colors don’t match…)
  • 1 glass Rosé (I used Mateus, but you can use any other. Just use a dark Rosé so the taste isn’t overpowered by the gummy bears’ flavors)
How to:
  1. Place the gummy bears in a bowl.
  2. Fill up a glass of Rosé. Start sipping, you’ve earned it.
  3. Fill up another glass of Rosé.
  4. Pour the second glass over the gummy bears.
  5. Let sit for 3-4 hours, or cover with cling film and stick in the fridge if you want to keep them over night. PS: Soaking them overnight won’t make much of a difference… Once they’re soaked, you’re good to go.
  6. Voilà! Serve them not-so-cold, cause the gummy bears tend to get a bit hard on the inside.

Try them out and let me know how it goes! Follow me on Instagram @AnotherGlassofRed and send the photo via DM. Waiting to see yours!

See you soon with another glass of red!
