Introduction: The Drunky Bear Experiment

This is my twisted experiment on an Instructable by courtnix

WARNING: Contains alcohol, so please only make this if you are of legal age in your area.

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1: Material and Preparation

Materials you will need:

2 - 3 lb bags of gummi bears
1 - bottle of vodka
1 - bottle of rum
1 - bottle of tequila
1 - can of fruit punch juice concentrate
1 - can of frozen margarita mix
3 - 64 oz tupperware containers
something to stir with 
a marker to label each container

Now that we have all the materials start by evenly dividing the gummi bears into the three containers.

Next fill the containers with the three different alcohols until the gummi bears are completely submerged.

Then stir the gummi bears around and label each lid so that you know which flavor to add later.

Finally let them sit in the fridge or in a cool place for about 4 days stirring them 2-3 times a day. Note they will be hard to stir at first as the gummi bears will stick together, but it will become easier to stir as the soak up.

Step 2: Adding Some Flavor

Now that they Bears have soaked up most if not all of the alcohol its it time to add the flavor

Thaw the two can of frozen concentrate 

Then add the margarita mix to the tequila soaked bears and fill the rest of the container with water until the bears are submerged again. 

Follow the same steps with the vodka bears and the fruit punch concentrate.

The rum bears were another experiment instead of adding flavor to them I just added more rum and a little bit of water so that they wouldn't dissolve into a puddle of gummi goo.

Store and stir for four more days or until they have soaked up all the juice.

Step 3: Time to Consume

The drunky bears should be finished and ready for consuming. Be careful how many you consume, they are more potent than they taste.

    Thanks I've been meaning to do more experiments. I just lack the free time and booze, hopefully I can put another one out soon.

    Adding extra flavor with the concentrate and mix is such a good idea!

    Thank you, the next time I make them I plan on using either pina colada or strawberry daiquiri to the rummy bears to kick up the flavor.
