Now, before I start this Instructable (my first!), I have some sources to cite. First, I made skittles vodka or "Love Potions" as Grymee (http://www.instructables.com/member/Grymee/ ) calls it. Here is Grymee's guide http://www.instructables.com/id/Love-Potions/ .
And this guide is almost a copy of courtnix's (http://www.instructables.com/member/courtnix/ ) Instructable. You can find it here http://www.instructables.com/id/Drunken-Gummies-Vodka-Infused-Gummi-Bears/ .
Now that that's out the way, lets begin!

Step 1: Skittles Vodka
For the skittles vodka you will need :
skittles (duh) not pictured
vodka (duh) people recommend using at least a decent quality vodka, but forever a rebel, I used the cheapest one in the supermarket.
a bottle in which the vodka will dissolve the skittles
some sort of fine filter (I used coffee filters) to filter the vodka once the skittles are absorbed
a container (like a jug or bottle) to store the vodka once you've filtered it
Ok, as I said, Grymee has a much better and more in-depth guide to this, but for our purpose, we only really need to do it roughly.
First, separate the skittles by colour. You'll probably need quite a lot. I did roughly a quarter of the bottle was full of skittles, then obviously fill it with vodka.
You leave this for about 24 hours, giving it a good hard shake every so often.
Now, you'll be left with a nicely coloured vodka with a foam-like substance at the top.
Now, you don't want a scoop of that in your gummis, so this is why we need to filter it. As you can see in the picture, i put my filter into a funnel, funnelling into a jug. You may need to filter it a few times to get all the gunk off. This can take a while, but for what we are using the skittles vodka for, you don't need to worry too much about how well you filter it.
Once you get it all filtered, we can move on to the gummi section!
