½ cup heavy cream
½ cup Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Whisky
½ cup butterscotch syrup

Vodka Gummy Bear Pops
This recipe combines vodka and your favourite gummy bear candy. Adulting done the right way, eh?
1 1/4 cup Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka
1 1/4 cup gummy bears
3 cups clear soda
Soak your gummy bears in Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka for 24 to 72 hours. The longer the gummy bears soak, the more vodka they absorb while also growing in size!
Once they're completely saturated, stir to separate them. Then strain one-third of them out of the vodka and place in the bottom of your popsicle moulds.
Fill the moulds with the clear soda until just covered, about one-third full and place in the freezer for 60-90 minutes.
Once the first layer is frozen, add the popsicle sticks and add a second layer of strained gummy bears and soda. Freeze again and repeat a third time. The total layering/freezing process should take around 4 hours.
