How to make Skittles Vodka
Haw vodka picture up a couple offars ago. So N thoughti show you
how to make youngen r) Enjoy!
You will need;
one an liter bottle (I used Stall - you don' t need the most
expensive vodka, but do avoid the cheap ones)
Five as ounce flasks or bottles
one 1 pound bag
We empty Plas K water bottles
Bowls for separating the Skittles into flavors
A measuring cup (not pictured)
or paper towels
You' ll also want to (ave! your wallspace with newspaper or freezer my - this
in/ illian can get messy. ' a and batch, here' s the you
need to how: I used so skittles to ls , which yields about 8 ounces of
infused vodka. want to make at , or 3 times thret, iust
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 met - 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 ifone flaw) nu) one infusion bottle,
then meurthe next flavor MS I les into the next Infusion
bottle, and so on u _ ll five bottles havea pile
soaking in .
You could certainly be more sophisticated than I was here,
and use a funnel to pour the Skittles ofence flavor into
one lithe bottles. The reason I 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 lithe funnel each _ e- that plastic
tends to hold onto the flavors, skin deem’ .
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 tithe Skittles still have a
lot redissolving to do. After shaking them, set them
aside for a few hours. les a good. 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 narrating
at the top. we' ll take care ofthis in
Step 5: Strain
Thereaver strain this stuffing metall the
white gunk out. Some people prefer paper towels, but I 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 this when I thought I was finished, 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 ifyou find you haven' t
strained it thoroughly enough, the good news is: you can
always for that 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
itto walkthrough, then 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 Bounces 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 as 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 . and it shouldn' t have been - thais why I ended
up having to outfitter I .Then I rinsed the funnel out again.
Repeat this process for each 'lavery.
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...
