I love candy.
I love cocktails.
Skittles vodka anyone?
I first came across this idea on Pinterest but according to a quick google search it is everywhere on the internets!
Who knew that there were so many smart people out there?
I followed the directions at THIS SITE and I suggest you do the same. It’s a fairly straight forward process, but her directions made it easy for me.
I wasn’t making a huge batch of the vodka, because..well…I need to be able to function tomorrow, so I scaled the recipe down.
I bought 5 little tiny bottles of vodka. They’re so cute!
But I will tell you I felt a bit like a suspicious character purchasing 5 tiny bottles of vodka at the liquor store…so I did what I always do, over-explain myself, which makes the whole scene exponentially more suspicious and awkward than if I had just pretended I was an alcoholic.
When I finally got home, I busted open my nice big bag of Skittles.
You can let them sit overnight…mine took about 6 hours since I made such a small batch. If you shake the bottles every so often it helps the process speed up.
When the Skittles are dissolved strain the vodka.
I used a coffee filter over a cup that I secured on with a rubber band.
Then transfer the vodka back into the mini bottles using a funnel.
Now, if you’re not hard core and don’t like drinking straight vodka, flavored or not…you can mix the Skittles vodka with just about anything.
I gave the orange vodka a try with a bit of orange juice and some Sprite.
It was tasty.
