Tequila Avión Gummy Bear Jello Shots 

(Makes around 10 2oz shots)

 Ingredients:

1 cup – Tequila Avión Silver

1 cup – Gummy Bear Syrup * 

1/3 cup – Powdered Gelatin (This is about half of what you’d normally use in a Jello shot, but since there’s gelatin in the Gummy Bears, you don’t need so much.)

 

Method:

Add the Tequila Avión to the Gummy Bear Syrup while it’s still hot enough that it hasn’t started to set. Slowly whisk in gelatin, so that there are no big clumps.  Prepare your serving vessels by spraying the insides of them lightly with olive oil cooking spray, so the shots will release more easily when they’re set up. Transfer the mixture into a pourable container and pour into the prepared serving vessels.  Place vessels in refrigerator and let set up (about 2 hours). When they’re fully set, they’re ready to enjoy!

Recipe For Gummy Bear Syrup

(Makes about one cup)

1 cup – Gummy Bears

1 ½ cups – Water

1 pinch – Citric Acid

1 pinch – Salt

Method:

Prepare a double boiler. Add the Gummy Bears and the water to the top of the boiler. Next,  let Gummy Bears slowly melt into the water, stirring occasionally. Once they are completely incorporated, transfer the mixture into a separate saucepan. Add citric acid and salt and bring to a boil. Boil for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Once the mixture has reduced to 1 cup, you’re ready to build the shots.
