My husband sent me this link http://mixthatdrink.com/skittles-vodka-tutorial/ the other day. He is crazy for Skittles and all sorts of artificial fruit flavors. We were intrigued. We went and got all of the supplies, invited a ton of people over, and decided to have beer-butt chickens (always delicious) and Skittles vodka. We decided, ok I decided because I love chocolate martinis, that we should also try the chocolate flavors.

We didn't have any of the fancy flasks like in the tutorial, but they can be purchased at The Container Store if you want to try this and your husband gets all psyched about how cool the flasks look despite the fact that there is nowhere remotely nearby that you can purchase them. I finally convinced him that, due to the time constraints, jelly jars would do and none of his friends would make fun of him. Jelly jars turned out to be the perfect size, cheap, and available! Plus, I feel they lend more to the "I made my own liquor" feel...you know, like moonshine!

We used the coffee filter method. We sort of had to push it through the filter at the end. Our fingers were all sorts of fruity colors. My dog still kept trying to lick them even after I had washed and scrubbed them, so you might want to wear gloves. My husband did the lemon and chocolatey flavors and looked as though he had a severe lifelong nicotine addiction.

I also recommend mixing them. They are strong and sugary on their own. It was definitely fun for a party. We are going to try some different vodka infusions next time. Let me know if you try this.

my roomies and i have been meaning to try this. and even though they think it sounds disgusting, i can't wait to try the chocolate flavors, either. which i don't think i would have thought of if not for you.

so thanks. Wink

they look really nice, i would love to give them a go but maybe make them for someone else as skittles make my asthma go crazy  Sad
can i just ask what did you use to make the chocolate and vanilla ones?? are there chocolate and vanilla flavoured skittles or did u just use plain chocolate and vanilla?
also, when mixed could you taste the flavours properly or did it just taste really sweet?

sorry about all the questions!!
