Mixer and Mingle Fridays: Taste the Spiked Rainbow

Oh boy have I got a drink for you this week...
Skittles infused vodka
Quit turning your nose up for 30 seconds and let me explain!

Get out your infusion jar that you use for sangria, pour the Skittles in, and then add the vodka! Easy as that. If you don't want skittles floating aroudn the bottom of your infusion jar, then make it in a cheapo jug, let it sit overnight and strain the liquid into your jar later to serve!

As a rough guesstimate use about 60 Skittles for every 6 oz of vodka.

I'll warn you - this looks like mud water. It tastes like the rainbow though!
If you want to make it a little prettier, you could always make seperate containers per flavor (You will end up with very brightly colored vodka with a serious punch of flavor!)

Enjoy it straight, as a bomb with energy drink, mixed with Sprite, on the rocks, or make some funky martini's... the possibilities are endless!

*It's not necessary you use Absolut Vodka, but I don't recommend using the cheap stuff!

This sounds delicious. I think I would probably seperate out the colors and make several different bottes of the infused vodka. Such a great idea!

I've totally done this before and it is WONDERFUL! We just took it as shots and since it was St. Patick's Day, we used all the green skittles!
