Feel like a kid again with a sweet shot that'll bring back some of your favorite childhood memories. If you were a fan of gummy bears — particularly blue ones — then you're going to love the sweet, nostalgic blue gummy bear shot.

How to Make a Blue Gummy Bear Shot

Sure, you can infuse gummy bears with vodka. It's definitely one way to go. Or, you could sip on a shot that tastes like a blue gummy bear that has way more booze than a gummy bear filled with alcohol. Whichever you choose (Both. Choose both.), we won't judge. 


  • ¾ ounce peach liqueur
  • ¾ ounce raspberry vodka
  • ¾ ounce blue curaçao
  • Ice


  1. In a cocktail shaker, add ice, peach liqueur, raspberry vodka, and blue curaçao.
  2. Shake to chill.
  3. Strain into a shot glass.

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.
  • Us raspberry rum (or even tequila) 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 blue sugar for an extra pop of blue.
