Champagne Haribo cocktail

Signe Johansen / 10 October 2016

Signe Johansen puts an eccentric twist on a classy favourite with this Haribo cocktail.

Champagne Haribo cocktail


Serves 6

  • 180 ml peach liqueur
  • Haribo of choice (I like a mix of gummy bears and Tangfastics)
  • 75cl bottle of sparkling wine, cava or Prosecco of choice (or champagne if you’re feeling flush)


At the risk of you thinking I’m a complete dilettante let me just say that not only is this drink tremendous fun to serve, but you can of course use other sparkling wine. Champagne and Haribo just has a nice ring to it and, as with most cocktails, came about more by accident than design—I had an abundance of Haribo left over from a party and a mini bottle of champagne in the fridge.

1. Pour 30ml of the peach liqueur in each of six champagne flutes and add the Haribo—one or two of each type.

2. Top up with fizz and stir a little so the Haribo start to bob and dance about.

3. Drink. And watch out for those tipsy Haribo—they’re the best part!
