By now, youâ€™ve probably heard of some sort of candy and alcohol combination. We have covered several takes on the idea, including chocolate wine, a candy cocktail called a Fish Bowl, the infamous Skittlebrau, and a long list of candy cocktails. If you like Skittles, and you like vodka, Jose at Extra Tasty has a recipe tailored to you.
Iâ€™m not much of a hard-liquor drinker, so I havenâ€™t tried this recipe, but apparently the key to a tasty drink is keeping the green (lime) Skittles out of the mix. Another key is patience. If youâ€™re in the mood for a quick party drink, the Vodka Skittles recipe is not for you. However, if youâ€™d like to sit down on a Thursday night and get your Saturday buzz ready, hereâ€™s your chance:
- Get a bottle of vodka (size not specified, but Iâ€™d go with less than a gallon).
- Sort the lime Skittles out of two regular bags, then pour the remaining candy into the vodka (evidently, lime makes it taste bad)
- Let the concoction sit for two days, and voila! you should have a bottle of vodka fit for an adults-only candy party.
My question is, how in the world did someone come up with this idea, and how did they figure out the lime Skittles had to be removed? It must have been one die hard Candy Addict who would take the time to figure this out!
