This Chart Shows You 10 Different Foods You Can Soak In Alcohol For Sweet And Boozy Treats

Move over, gummy bears! You can make so many delicious boozy treats.

While I definitely consider myself a picky eater, I have never shied away from the suggestion of soaking pretty much anything in alcohol in an attempt to make a boozy treat. All the fruits. All the candy. I am not, however, very creative and tend to stick with the same type of alcohol for the, er, experiments.

Times are a changin’, though, my friends, and it’s all thanks to this brilliant chart by Delish that shows 10 different foods and what alcohol you should be soaking them in. No more gummy bears in plain vodka for this girl, from here on out it is all Twizzlers and kiwi-strawberry vodka.


Take a look at Delish’s suggestions below and then please feel free to join me in trying all the recipes. Right. Now. The website helpfully posted the chart on their Facebook page, where it has become quite popular (I mean, duh). It’s racked up more than 49,000 shares, 27,000 reactions and 9,000 comments!

Watermelon and tequila? Green apples and caramel vodka?! Did I mention this is brilliant?

Delish says if you like piña coladas (and getting lost in the rain … ?), then the pineapple soaked in coconut rum is perfect for you. And if you’ve ever had moonshine cherries, obviously, cherries in spiced rum is right up your alley. You also can’t go wrong with the double-watermelon taste of watermelon gummies with watermelon pucker (hello, summer!) or strawberries with whipped cream vodka!
