Experimenting with Vodka & Skittles

A friend recently directed me to a site with an interesting idea...
and knowing how much I enjoy arts-ing and crafting and experimenting with new ideas, I am determined to begin this process ASAP.
If you like trying new things, like the occasional drink, or need an interesting gift idea then join me in my quest:
Skittles Vodka
  • Step 1: Seperate skittles into seperate colours (about 60 of each colour) - or if you're lazy and don't want to make 5 different batches just throw them all in together. Your vodka will likely be a questionable shade of brown...
  • Step 2: Fill 5 water bottles with 6 ounces of vodka each.
  • Step 3: Add the skittles.
  • Step 4: Shake the bottles. Vigorously. You want to see colour leaching off the skittles and into the vodka. Let the water bottles sit for several hours. Feel free to give them another shake every so often. Let them sit at least overnight. Let them sit, with the occasional shake, until the skittles are dissolved.
  • Step 5: Strain out the white gunk floating on top. Put a coffee filter into a measuring cup and strain the vodka infusion through it. Repeat for each water bottle. You may need to filter the vodka a second time, depending. Pour the filtered vodka into glass bottles. Put those glass bottles in the freezer for a few hours - then you're ready to mix and drink them!
