What is a Dutch Bros OG Gummy Bear?

A Dutch Bros OG Gummy Bear is one of the most popular drinks that you can get at Dutch Bros. It is a drink that takes you back to your childhood with its gummy bear-inspired flavors.

You’ll find hints of pomegranate, watermelon, passion fruit, and grapefruit in an OG Gummy Bear drink. This drink can either be iced or blended depending on your preference and it comes in three different cup sizes.

You can either get a small, medium, or large cup. If you are a fruity drink lover, you might still find that a large OG Gummy Bear is not enough. It is also a non-caffeinated drink which is great if you don’t like coffee!

If you order the drink at Dutch Bros, a small OG Gummy Bear has 210 calories while a medium and a large have 290 and 390 calories respectively.

Imagine gummy bears but in liquid form. It might sound weird but it has sweet and tangy flavors that will keep you coming back for more.

Ingredients Needed

Dutch Bros Gummy Bear has simple ingredients that you can find in your local grocery store or even on Amazon. You also don’t need any special equipment since this drink does not have any caffeine. No fancy espresso machine or any other brewing device is needed for this drink!

One Can of Soda Water or Sparkling Water

You can use sparkling water for this. A flavored one can also work but since you’ll be adding syrup to the drink, plain sparkling water works just fine. If you are using flavored soda water, try getting a flavor that matches well with the syrup.

One Can of Red Bull

Dutch Bros has a “Rebel” line on their menu and these are beverages with energy drinks included. No, Dutch Bros don’t actually use Red Bull in their drinks. Instead, they use their own energy drink called Blue Rebel.

Unless you live near a Dutch Bros location, you’ll have a hard time finding cans of Dutch Bros Blue Rebel as they only have them in-store. You won’t find anything online so a Red Bull is your closest choice.

You can opt for the sugar-free or regular Red Bull. It’s all up to your preferences. You will need one 8.4 oz of Red Bull but, you can use the taller cans. Just make sure your glass is tall enough for it.

Flavored Syrup

The secret to a delicious OG Gummy Bear is in the syrup. Dutch Bros uses Torani syrup for their drinks but you can use whatever brand you have in your home. 

But, for a more authentic drink, Torani is your best option.

If you want a copycat of the OG Gummy Bear, you need to use pomegranate syrup, passion fruit syrup, watermelon syrup, and grapefruit syrup.

Of course, you can mix and match and create your own version of an OG Gummy Bear but those are the syrups Dutch Bros uses for the OG Gummy Bear.

Ice

It is a cold, refreshing drink so you’ll need ice for this drink.

Equipment Needed

As I mentioned earlier, you don’t need any brewing device or other special equipment for this. All you need is a tall glass, a straw or spoon for mixing, and a blender.

If you don’t have a blender, that’s totally fine. Instead of a blended drink, you can just make an iced version of the OG Gummy Bear.

Dutch Bros OG Gummy Bear Recipe

If you have all the ingredients and equipment you need, it’s time to make an OG Gummy Bear! You’ll only need 5 minutes to make this drink.

To make an OG Gummy Bear:

  1. Fill in your glass with ice.
  2. Add one pump of each flavored syrup into your glass. That's pomegranate syrup, passion fruit syrup, watermelon syrup, and grapefruit syrup. If your syrup bottle does not have a pump, add half a tablespoon each and adjust according to your taste.
  3. Fill your glass with Red Bull (or Dutch Bros Blue Rebel) until ¾ of the way.
  4. Add a splash (more or less depending on your preference) of sparkling water into your glass.
  5. Mix everything together and enjoy!

For the blended version, place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until the consistency is the same as that of a smoothie.

If you don’t want to add sparkling water, use the whole can of the energy drink. Alternatively, you can also opt not to put Red Bull and just use soda water.

If you want to be more adventurous, you can choose different flavored syrup or add in different flavored soda water. You can also experiment with the number of syrup pumps you can put in the drink.

Since it is a drink you’ll be making at home, you have the liberty to add and replace ingredients. If you also want to stick to the recipe, you can also do so.

Final Thoughts

While ordering at Dutch Bros can be an experience in itself, recreating their drinks at home can be one too. This can also be useful if the nearest Dutch Bros store is an hour’s drive from you.

With how easy the OG Gummy Bear is to make, you’ll probably end up making it at home all the time. You also don’t have to leave your home to get the ingredients as you can have it delivered right to your doorstep!

The Dutch Bros OG Gummy Bear is just one of the many drinks you can try recreating at home. Other Dutch Bros drinks you can try copying using recipes I've already written are the Dutch Bros Rebel, Dutch Bros Kicker, and Dutch Bros Golden Eagle.

Try your hand at making these drinks and let me know how it goes!
