Enjoy Your Favorite Wine In A Bite-Sized, Snackable Way

If you enjoy taking vitamins in gummy form and also love wine, we have good news for you: It is possible to savor your favorite wine blends in a chewy treat — and you can make them at home. Wine gummies have been turning up at baby showers, weddings, and birthday gatherings — and for good reason. The snack-sized treats are delicious, fun to eat, and can be customized with your preferred brands of booze. 

You can make your own wine gummies at home with sugar, powdered gelatin, and your wine flavor of choice. Add various shades of food coloring if you want to spruce up the appearance of your gummy candies for a specific event or celebration. Your treats will need to sit for an hour after being poured into the mold of your choice, but once made, they can be kept in airtight containers to be enjoyed later on or distributed as party favors to guests.

Your favorite wine blends in gummy form

Wine, port, sherry, and gin gummies first appeared in London in the late 1800s, but the gummy candies didn't actually have any alcohol in them. They can — and do — now, though. In fact, plenty of brands currently sell gummies with booze. And if you choose to make them for yourself at home, you can decide exactly which ingredients to use and how much of those ingredients you want to include.

The combination of wine, gelatin, sugar or honey, and corn syrup with the optional addition of citric acid will yield chewy gummies that can be snacked on or gifted with ease. Though including wine in the recipe will increase the alcohol content of the gummies you whip up, you'd need to eat quite a few of these bite-sized treats to feel drunk. Still, keep these candies away from the kids and let adults enjoy the Champagne, rosé, or Merlot-flavored treats for themselves.
