I am going to apologize in advance for this, but I want people to get as big a head start as possible on this weeks "drink", and I've been procrastinating on doing a full write up on it. Go buy this shit tonight and get it in the fridge as soon as possible:
- Take one package of Haribo Gummi Bears, and pour it into a bowl.
- Pour in enough liqour to fully submerge the bears.
- Cover with lid or plastic wrap, and put back in the fridge.
- Let soak for 3-5 days (or as long as you can, which will be 48 hours if you start tonight, and watch on Thursday)
More alcohol will not mean stronger bears. Think of them like sponges. When you put a sponge in water, it is only going to soak up so much water, before it can't soak up anymore. Same with the bears, they won't keep growing and soaking up liquid, they reach an equilibrium, and that's that.
Now, most people use vodka for this, but that doesn't really make them groovy the way that we want them to be. If we want them to add a bit more interest, I think you should soak them in Absinthe.
I know, I know, I know. Absinthe isn't really any more groovy than vodka, but it does have a stigma, or at least a historical stigma, of causing a halucinagenic state. I know that isn't actually the case, but just bear with me (heh) and give it a whirl if you're feeling frisky. Otherwise, soak them in whatever you please. I think Tequila, or Rum or even Gin would work great. Pick your favorite and do as you please.
