Skittle Infused Vodka
Yes, another infusion of vodka. They're easy, and my particular reason for this one is to make a slime-y green cocktail which will be showing up on my blog within the next few days. I used the green ones because, well, I wanted to make a slime green drink, but you can use whatever color your heart desires. The cool thing about using skittles, is that it actually makes the vodka a little sweeter. There are endless amounts of things you can use this vodka for. I'll have a few recipes at the end of this how to for you to try.
Step 1: Step 1
What you need:
Skittles (half a cup or so)
Contain with a tight fitting lid, tupperware or mason jar, whatever you have laying around is fine.
Step 2: Step 2
A picture says a thousand words. Simply Pour your skittles into your container.
Step 3: Step 3
If a picture says a thousand words a moving one says a million. Pour your vodka in with your skittles filling it up to the top.
Step 4: Step 4
Seal your lid extra tight and give the jar a good shake. Look! It's already turning green! Place your jar in the fridge for at least four hours. The longer you let it sit the strong it will taste like skittles though. I had mine sitting in my fridge for 3 days. The longer you let it sit, the more the skittles dissolve. So if you desire to, I suppose you could let it sit in the fridge until the skittles are complete dissolved.
Step 5: Step 5
Last step here we go:
After letting it sit for the time you'd like, strain it into another container. It will be a good solid green color (or whatever color skittles you used). This works great for drinks that you want to be a certain color, but don't have the color liqueur to match. I'll be updating my blog with a great slime green cocktail very soon so keep an eye out. ;)
