If you’re a big fan of Skittles and vodka, you now have an opportunity to “Taste the Rainbow” while it mops the floor with you. I’m talking about an intriguing little recipe I stumbled across a couple days ago referred to as “Skittles Vodka” and am really curious to give this a try. If you’ve done this before or have tasted it, drop me a line here on the KW Blog and tell me about your experience. If you’re seeing this recipe for the first time (like I am) and you beat me in trying this out, let me know how it goes.
From what I’ve seen, there are two distinct ways to infuse your favorite vodka with that oh-so-nice Skittleicious flavor: You can try the “all in” approach, which involves dumping all the different flavored Skittles into one bottle of premium vodka, or you can painstakingly separate the Skittles by flavor and put them in individual containers (or glasses).
The basic concept is to soak the Skittles in the vodka for a period of about 24 hours. Personally, I’d push for a little more time than that – just to be sure. After this is done, filter out the sugary sludge at the bottom of your container by pouring the dissolved concoction through a filter into another bottle before chilling and serving. [Note: I’ve read that the bleached-white coffee filters may make it taste funny… so you are probably best to use an unbleached filter.]
Give it a shot… or two. 😉
