Then strain in into a pretty bottle.

  2. Hey Paula,
    Thanks so much for the party. Have a great weekend.

  3. This sounds amazing! I love cherry jelly beans and am going to make this drink soon! Quick question...the ingredients say cranberry juice, but the directions say apple juice. Just curious which one you use to make the drink. Thank you!!!

    1. Hi Aubrey,
      I tried to email you, but you were a no-reply blogger. I used both, I'll go in and fix it now. I preferred the cranberry juice. I thought it tasted better. Thanks for bringing this to my attention.

    2. Thank you so much for letting us know! I will be making this drink this week! :)

  4. This sounds like a cool drink! Funny, the other day we visited our daughter and they were having a party that night. She showed me the gummy bears they had soaking in vodka, said it's the new 'jello shooter' idea. First I've heard of it and now I see this recipe!
