How to make Skittles Vodka
Maw vodka picture up a couple qfuoys ago. So N thoughtit show you
how to r) Enjoy!
You will need,-
one "rs liter bottle (l used Stall - you don't need the most
expensive vodka, but do avoid the cheap ones)
e as ounce flasks or bottles
one 1 pound bag
Five empty plastic water bottles
Bowls fur separating the Skittles into flavors
A measuring cup (not pictured)
Coffee filters or paper towels
You' ll also want to cover your with newspaper or freezer paper - this
can get messy. ' a and batch, here' s the you
need to how: I used so skittles to is , which yields about 8 ounces of
infused vodka. moo want to make 1.; , or 3
Step . Separate the colours
Simply seperate the flavours you'll need so breach.
Step n Bottles
Fill your water bottles with 6 ounces ofwgtka each. It
doesn' t need to be exact - you can always even it out
later by poo ing in a bit more vodka to the ones that
come out with less.

Step Add the Skittles
Meurthe Skittles ifone flavor into one infusion bottle,
then meurthe next flavor into the next i fusion
bottle, and so on unil all five bottles havea pile on rules
soaking in .
vou could certainly be more sop cated than I was here,
and use a funnel to pour the Skittles breach flavor into
one lithe bottles. The reason I did it this way was that I
felt it would be easier to wash each flavor or Skittles off
my hands befire moving onto the next one than it than to
get that flavor out ofthe funnel each tattie- that plastic
tends to hold onto the flavors, skin doesn-
Step 1,: Shake 'em, shake 'em, shake 'em
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 idea to shake them
again then, especially 'fyne' re making a bigger
batch. My Skittles all dissolved overnight.
once they' re all dissolved, you'll

Step 5: Strain
Thereaver strain this starland metall the
white gunk out. Some people prefer paper towels, but I used
come haters and round they worked just as well. I put a funnel
dea measuring cup.
Then I put row coffee filters in the funnel. les hard to say
exactly how need, since totall
exactly the same. I' ll tell you one thing I did learn, though:
orange and green needed more (ultra ion 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 ofit. so Wynn find you haven' t
strained it thoroughly enough, the good news is: you can
always tix that later.
Then I poured one ortho infusions into my strainer setup. I had
to pour about a quarter or my infusion in, then wait for some or
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 infused vodka. Then I dumped the
funnel and come filters into one ofthe bowls lad used earlier rm
counting out Skittles, to catch drips as I carried it over to the
sink. I washed everything out fur refusing (except the (offer
filters, ofcourse - those I just rinsed before disposing or, 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 thick, and it shouldn' t have been - thais why I ended
up having to outfitter it. Then I rinsed the funnel out again.
Repeat this Process for each flavore.
