How to make Skittles Vodka
Maw vodka picture up a couple tfguys ago. so N thoughti" d show you
how to o Enjoy!
You will need;
one 1. 75 liter bottle (I used Stall - you don' t need the most
expensive vodka, but do avoid the cheap ones)
Fivee. s or bottles
one x pound bag
We empty Plas K water bottles
Bowls for separating the Skittles into flavors
A measuring cup (not pictured)
coffee filters or Paper towels
You' ll also want to (aw: your workspace with newspaper or freezer paper - this
an get messy. ' a different sized , here' s you
need to know: I used so skittles to is , which yields about 8 ounces of
infused vodka. Hwy want to moire at timestream, 013 times that, just multiply your
Step v. Separate the colours
Simply seperate the flavours you'll need so ofence.
Step -Setting up your infusion Bottles
Fill your water bottles with 6 ounces each. it
doesn' t need to be exact - you can always even it out
later by pouring in a bit more vodka to the ones that
come out with less.
Step 3: Add the Skittles
Meurthe Skittles nu) one infusion bottle,
then meurthe I les into the next infusion
bottle, and so on u _ all five bottles havea pile
soaking in the vodka.
You could certainty's more sophisticated than I was here,
and use a funnel to pour the Skittles ofence flavor into
one ofthe bottles. The reason I did it this way was that I
rel would be easier to wash each flavor of Skittles off
my hands before moving onto the next one than it than to
get that flavor out ofthe funnel each _ e- that plastic
tends to hold onto the flavors, skin dneirf .
Step 1,. Shake 'em, shake 'em, shake 'em
Now your infusion bottles all have Skittles in the
bottom. Give each bottle a good shake -the more,
the better. In my picture here, you can seethed the
colored candy coating has already rubbed off into the
vodka, but the white insides ofthe Skittles still have a
lot redissolving to do. After shaking them, set them
aside for a few hours. les a good I ea to shake them
again then, you're maki g a bigger
batch. My Skittles all dissolved overnight.
once they' re all dissolved, you'll
notice a lot oowhite muck nitrating
at the top. we' ll take care ohms in
Step 5: Strain
Thereaver strain this metall the
white gunk out. Some people prefer paper towels, bull used
Found . I puta funnel
insidee measuring cup.
Then I put four coffee filters in the funnel. les hard to say
exactly how many youll need, since not all coffee filters are
exactly the same. I' ll tell you one thing I did learn, though:
orange and green needed more filtration than the others. I
discovered I thought I , and found a
little bit oowhite stuff still floating in those two flavor's. No
problem, though: Hus! strained them again through one more
coffee filter, and that took care of it. so Wynn find you haven' t
strained it thoroughly enough, the good news is: you can
always didthat later.
Then I poured one ofthe infusions into my strainer setup. I had
to pour about a quarter of in fusion in, then wait for some of
it to soak through, then pour another quarter in, until I was
done. (Mme strainer clogs with white gunk, use a spoon to
scrape the white gunk out ofthe way.) In the end, you'll have
about 8 ounces h infused vodka. then I dumped the
funnel and coffee filters into one ofthe bowls lad used earlier for
counting out Skittles, to catch drips " I can over to the
sink. I washed everything out for refusing (except the coffee
filters, ofcourse - those I just rinsed before disposing of, so the
sugar wouldn' t attract ants).
Then I took the liquid from the measuring cup and poured it into
a flask, via the funnel. vou can see here that the green
is a little t I and it shouldn' t have been - that's why I ended
up having to I .Then I rinsed the funnel out again.
Repeat this process for each flavor.
Step 6: Chill Serve
Now you' got 5 flasks or bottles of Skittles infused vodka:
Stick them in the freezer for several hours - overnight is fabulous...
