Sobriety Checkpoint: Skittles© Infused Vodka
Hmmm. Sounds delicious, right?
What could be better than your favorite little, sugary candies in vodka?!
Well, addROC and I found out, a lot of things are WAY better than this supposed sweet treat.
We got the idea from this video:
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
3 Bags Skittles©, with the GREEN and PURPLE candies removed
500 ml Bottle of Vodka
1 Sieve or Cheesecloth
Pour out or drink the top 2 oz of vodka from the bottle. Pour Skittles© into bottle. Shake bottle with Skittles© until most of the color has bled out of the candy. Let the Skittles© soak for 24 hours. Using a small sieve or cheesecloth, strain solids from vodka bottle. Pour infused vodka back into bottle.
Or not. We didn't like the flavor very much, and, we're not really sure what kind of mixer is appropriate for this spirit, we tried Lemon-Lime soda, which didn't really do it for us.
So, try at your own risk...it was still a nifty little project...but for now, I think I'll stick to enjoying the one thing Skittles© always does right, advertising!
