Drippity Drop Ciroc

Makes 10 servings

1 750 ml bottle of peach flavored Ciroc vodka
1 pack of gummy bears
2 liters Sprite

To make Ciroc-soaked gummy bears: Place regular gummy bears in bowl and pour 1/3 bottle of Ciroc over them. Let soak overnight or for at least three hours (because you do everything at the last minute).

To make individual drinks: Remove gummy bears from bowl and place in goblet of your choosing. Add 1.5 oz Ciroc and 6 oz Sprite. Pretend you are not consuming the alcoholic version of your favorite Capri Sun flavor.

…And for every other character, just drink some Alizé.
