Introduction: Prom Night Shooter

Dashing and daring,
Courageous and caring,
Faithful and friendly,
With stories to share.
All through the forest,
They sing out in chorus,
Marching along,
As their song fills the air.

Gummi Bears!!
Bouncing here and there and everywhere.
High adventure that's beyond compare.
They are the Gummi Bears.

-----------------

Here's a fruity tasty layered shooter for all those who like tropical drinks.  The layering is a simple result of varying densities in the liqueurs/liquors.

Note:  Don't drink if you're underage.
 

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

You'll need:
-Shot glass
-Grenadine (Density: 1.18)
-Coconut Rum (Density: 1.04)
-Red/Orange Gummi Bears Soaked in Triple Sec

Note:  Add gummi bears to a glass mason jar.  Fill mason jar with Triple Sec until the liqueur is 1-2" above the gummi bears.  Soak at room temperature for 12-24 hours.  The gummi bears will double in size.  Be sure to slosh the gummies around in the jar every so often or else they'll stick to one another and will tear when you try to pry them apart.

Step 2: Gummi Bear

Place gummi bear in the bottom of the shot glass.
 

Step 3: Grenadine

Add just a tiny bit of grenadine to the bottom of the shot glass.
 

Step 4: Coconut Rum

Carefully pour the coconut rum down the side of the shot glass.

Note:  You can use a spoon if you're concerned about the grenadine mixing with the rum.

Nice, and very pretty. I went to a party thrown by a bunch of sorority girls several years ago, and they were serving something very much like this, only without the Gummi Bear. Oh, and they were using highball glasses. They called it a "Pink Panty Pulldown".

That was a great party. I think....

Sorority girls, ah yes- "So one time at...."   LOL

I'm hoping they also used ice.  Phew.

Oh yes, there was ice. I attribute my survival of the party to the ice, in fact. Those drinks wuz strong.

The final texture of the gummi after soaking is amazing.
