09 #HappyHourClub: Prosecco Tipsy Gummy Bears

Hello prosecco and gummy bears! I have to say I'm in love with this new combo. Forget rum or vodka, it's all about something a little more fun and bubbly. It's so good even Carrie Bradshaw would be skipping around in her Louboutins. Plus this ultra chic version of drunken tipsy gummy bears features Sugarfina's Champagne BearsLos Angeles' favorite candy shop. Now grab your favorite prosecco and get ready to party with this recipe.

Grab your gal pals and get ready for a sweet treat I've dubbed Prosecco Tipsy Gummy Bears. This is the perfect edible for any poolside or beach side girls day. What you'll need for this combo? Sugarfina's Champagne Bears and a bottle of prosecco, actually make that 2 bottles. That way you'll have enough to toast the day away.

#HAPPYHOURCLUB Cocktail: Prosecco Tipsy Gummy Bears

Ingredients:

Instructions:

Grab a medium size bowl and add your gummy bears. Next pop that bottle of prosecco and pour in enough of this bubbly goodness to cover the sugary but gluten-free bears. Cover the bowl (or Mason jar works nicely too). Place in refrigerator and let those gummy bears soak in the sweet prosecco. I let mine sit for about 24 hours. My patience needs some work. You'll see the bears swell up into nice glossy plumpness. The best way to serve these bears? With party picks so you don't have a gummy mess on your new manicure. Cheers!
