Taste the RAINBOW!!!
What? Skittle flavored vodka . . . yum! :) I found this while surfing the web and just had to give it a try.
What you will need is:
The formula that was on the web:
60 Skittles to 6 ounces of vodka, which yields about 8 ounces of infused vodka.
There are a couple of ways to do this but here is the way I did mine.
Get your empty water bottles and place the skittles in different water bottles separating them by flavors. (So all the lime ones are in one water bottle and all the grape ones are in another).
Next, fill your water bottles with about 6 ounces of vodka each. This doesn’t need to be exact; you can always even it out later by pouring more vodka to the ones that have less skittles. I wanted my vodka to come out a bit sweeter so I added a little less vodka to the water bottles.
Now for the fun part, shake, shake, shake! Shake the bottles vigorously, the more the better! By this time your skittles' candy coating should be coming off and the skittles should look white. After shaking them let them rest for a while but always return to give them a good shake, do this several times throughout the day. You will more then likely have to leave them overnight to dissolve. Mine took about 24 hours to completely dissolve (but I did make a bigger batch). Once they are fully dissolved you will notice some skittles residue floating at the top of the bottles, don’t worry about this, it gets filtered out.
There are many different ways to filter out the residue. I used a coffee filter and found out it worked quite well. I used a measuring cup to hold my filtered liquid and placed a funnel in the cup then place a coffee filter in the funnel. Pour one of your skittle-flavored vodkas in a few tablespoons in at a time. I found the filter does get clogged so with every pour after the liquid was filtered I got a new coffee filter. I filtered every color twice to make sure all the residue that was on top of the liquid is gone. If you find you still have stuff floating on the top of your liquids you can always filter it again.
Repeat the process with each flavor. (Make sure to clean your materials you used before going on to the next flavor)
Now put your liquid in 5 different flasks and place them in the fridge to chill. Then serve!
These wonderful liquors are pretty tasty and sweet on their own (you can always dilute it with water or ginger ale) but they are almost pure vodka so they do have a kick.
Here are some different ways to serve them:
Get creative and let me know how you serve them.
