We love boozy gummy bears for family parties and holiday dinners - they are sweet, easy to prepare, and full of flavor.
These are a unique twist on a classic Negroni Cocktail - perfectly balancing bitter, herbal, and sweet flavors.
If you love gin and Campari - you’ll REALLY love this recipe!
These candies are NOT child friendly and contain a cup and a half of liquor, so please keep away from tiny hands. Do not serve at a party or dinner where kids are present - it is too easy for kids to confuse or forget.

What is a Negroni
Negronis are a traditional Italian cocktail with one part gin, one part vermouth, and one part Campari.
Traditionally, a negroni uses sweet vermouth - but since we are adding to candy, for this recipe we are using a dry vermouth to better balance the flavor.
Campari is a bitter liqueur, with a bright red color thanks to the botanicals it is made with. It’s similar to Aperol, but a bit more bitter.
How long to soak gummy bears
Spiked gummy bears should be soaked for at least 8 hours, up to overnight.
To keep gummy bears from turning into piles of goo, we recommend soaking slightly stale gummy bears - and letting them soak longer.
What gummy bears to use
We prefer using organic, fruit-based gummy bears for this recipe, since the flavor will be more natural and less artificial.
As the gummy bears soak up the alcohol, processed sugar flavor can get a bit weird - we LOVE haribos for snacking, but for this recipe, we prefer brands like Black Forest, Smart Sweets, or bulk fruit juice based gummy bears from your organic grocer's bulk section.
We suggest letting your gummy bears get slightly stale before using - it helps them from turning into goo.
