These adults-only rosé candies from The Whole Smiths Good Food Cookbook are summertime bliss in gummy form.

Yes way to rosé gummies! While most people think of gummies as a kid thing, I’m here to bust the lid off that myth. These gummies are exclusively for adults, and they make the perfect treat for such grown-up activities as book club (because who talks about the book, anyway?), bridal showers, and Thursday afternoons when you’re ready for the week to be over. I love the variety of silicone molds available today. Not only do they come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they make popping your gummies out a breeze. Pick your favorite and enjoy!


½ cup no-sugar-added white grape juice

2 teaspoons honey

1 teaspoon no-sugar-added dark red fruit juice, such as cranberry, pomegranate, or cherry

2 tablespoons powdered gelatin

½ cup rosé wine

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the white grape juice, honey, and red fruit juice. Heat over medium heat, stirring continuously, until the honey has dissolved and the juice is hot but not boiling, about 3 minutes. Very slowly sprinkle in the gelatin, whisking continuously to prevent any lumps from forming. Once all the gelatin is incorporated, pour in the rosé and stir to combine. Cook until just combined and warmed through, 20 to 30 seconds; you do not want to burn off the alcohol. Remove from the heat and pour the mixture into a large glass measuring cup.
  2. Use a spoon to skim any foam or clumps off the top. Pour into silicone candy molds and refrigerate for 2 hours, or until set.
  3. Remove from the molds and serve. Store refrigerated up to 4 days.

Makes 3-4 servings
