Tropical Skittles Vodka

So I decided I'd make some Tropical Skittles Vodka. I decided to buy Smirnoff Red Label 375ml bottles for each flavor, for 5 bottles it cost me $11.99 a bottle with taxes and deposit it cost $60.45. I used 3 medium sized Skittles bags that cost about $2.38 each, so x3 so about $7.80. I also used 5 empty water bottles. Waiting for the Skittles to dissolve and straining it back in to its original bottles took about 3 1/2 hours.


So I separated each color in to glasses as shown behind the bottles...


With 3 bags of Skittles I put them in bottles and it was all pretty close measurements, I think the blue and green had the most but pretty close


I put them in the sink with hot water so the skittles can dissolve faster. I took them out every so often and shook them, I had to drain the water once and fill it back up with hot water cause it started to cool down a bit. When they start floating on its side they are pretty much done dissolving for the most part.


Straining the Banana Berry with a funnel and a coffee filter


Strawberry Starfruit with a fresh coffee filter


...Pineapple Passion Fruit again new coffee filter.


...Kiwi Lime


... and Mango Tangelo


...and pretty much what they turned out to look like. There was like a shot left out of each so I decided to test them out. They taste like skittles

It taste pretty sweet, I think it would go good mixed with ginger ale or sprite, or a straight up shot

I wish I had friends to drink this with

Was the skittle flavour in it very strong? I've read about this online before and it seems like most people tend to do this over a 24 hour period so they can strain out the old skittles and replace them with a fresh batch of skittles.

yeah I can really taste the rainbow and yeah I saw that too but I'm guessing its just only to dissolve the skittles, cause there was no skittles left in there when I strained it, just wax and sugar. it really does have the taste of skittles and vodka. pretty sweet

I'm going to try making this out of Jolly Ranchers next but I might try the regular flavors first. I still never tried this yet, only tasted it, its still in the freezer as we speak.

Where did you get the vodka from?

BC Liquor or some other place?

Also, anyone know where the cheapest place to get it from?

Haha its so true. I'm russian and I was there a few years back and we were doing shots of vodka with rye bread, hunks of smoked sausage, and pickles. Absolutely delicious.

lol. That's like my father expect we're polish so he'll drink Belvedere, Zubrowka or straight up Spirytus.

That's pretty cool though. If I was a kid and I didn't know what that was I'd probably mistake it for some juice lol.
