Skittles Infused Vodka
Infused vodka’s are expensive in speciality stores and even more draining on the pocketbook when going out for a night on the town. Try your hand at making Skittles Infused Vodka.
Infused vodka is all the rage. I see it popping up everywhere. It’s nothing new. There is just something about infusing with the tropical candy that caught our eye.
One of my girlfriends and I enjoy trying new drinks out. I am the light weight out of our group. One or two hard alcohol drinks and my head in spinning. I can drink beer and tequila, without a problem.
In our social circle we would rather sit around a campfire then go to a bar or club; with the exception of our once a month happy hour. So, when a friend of ours was telling us how his brother-in-law made Skittles vodka, it peaked our interest. The two of us got together and we tried our hand at infusing vodka. with Skittles.
It’s not difficult by any means. You sort the colored candy. Drop 240 of each into each bottle and fill with vodka leaving them sit for hours.
The flavor soaks into the vodka and your left with some white pebbles on the bottom of the bottle. You strain the white sediment from the top using cheesecloth and enjoy!
Men seem to enjoy the apple and cherry flavored vodka and women the watermelon, cherry and blue raspberry. The blue raspberry is hands down my “flavorite.” I enjoy mixing it with pink lemonade.
After infusing with Skittles, I have my sights set on Jolly Ranchers and Lifesavers. Guess my summer will be infused with sweetness.
It was a fun and tasty experiment . I will surely make more in the future.
