Gummy bear martinis arent meant to be a set-in-stone martini, and drinkers can customize the drink in various ways. One obvious way is to switch up the flavors of vodka involved in the cocktail. A great option would be a pineapple or pear vodka, for example, to introduce a fruity aspect to the cocktail. Of course, one can also add some freshly squeezed fruit juice instead such as grapefruit juice, or watermelon juice, which would complement the sweetness provided by the gummy bear garnishes. This is one cocktail that allows adults to have fun and feel like a kid again. Celebrate your second childhood today with a gummy bear martini!
