Put bears in a glass container.  (Mini bears on the left, regular size on the right)  I use mason jars, they are handy to store and shake up.

Today I am making two different flavors of bears.  Fluffed Marshmallow & Green Apple. (Do Not Mix!!  These are in separate jars) I have tried in the past with plain vodka, rum & coconut rum, all good.

Pour vodka over the bears to cover.  Mix up.  This is where a mason jar comes in handy to just shake up the jar.

I store mine in the refrigerator.  Every few hours I give them another shake.  Let infuse for at least 24 hours.  The bears will soak up all of the alcohol the longer they sit.
