Candy Cocktail: Vodka Skittles

By now, you’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.

I’m not much of a hard-liquor drinker, so I haven’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 you’re in the mood for a quick party drink, the Vodka Skittles recipe is not for you. However, if you’d like to sit down on a Thursday night and get your Saturday buzz ready, here’s your chance:

  1. Get a bottle of vodka (size not specified, but I’d go with less than a gallon).
  2. Sort the lime Skittles out of two regular bags, then pour the remaining candy into the vodka (evidently, lime makes it taste bad)
  3. 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!

    That reminds me of when Zima was popular – everyone put jolly ranchers in them to make their own “flavored” Zimas.

    Hmmm, not being a drinker of alcohol, and someone who loves to experiment with foodstuffs, I’d like to try this with some ginger ale or lemonade! I bet it does make a tasty vodka drink; I’d've loved it back when I indulged! Wonder what color it becomes…pinkish? Maybe if you ONLY used lime Skittles, it’d taste good and limeade-ish!

    Heh. If it sounds good and tasty, it’s probably the skittle part not the vodka. I’d like to try it with something like carbonated water, maybe even flavored carbonated water – see what that does. Or juices. It’s weird that the lime but not the lemon Skittles are a problem. They do have a very pronounced flavor, though, whereas the other skittle flavors are more like one another; maybe that’s the problem!

    I have tried this before and I left the green ones in. It wasn’t horrible tasting but it didn’t make me run out and by more and do it again… maybe i’ll try this weekend without the green and see if its any better.. :)

    I hear you have to skim the fat that floats to the top before drinking it so it tastes better. Kind of a gross thought.

    I meant to post this a million years ago, but I did my own take on this.

    I separated all the flavors, threw out the grape (not a big fan). Then I put the separate colors in poland spring water bottles. Adding the vodka to it I let them sit for a couple of days. Straining out the white floating stuff is kind of gross and messy, but it comes out so good! I usually let them stay in the freezer until I’m ready for them. (Hint: Orange flavored with sprite tastes like an orange creamsicle)

    Years ago, when we went camping with friends, we would make our own version of Skittles my drinking out of two bottles of Boones Farm flavored malt beverages at the same time – a green and a red. This process actually sound better since it’s with vodka. With summer camping season coming up here, I may have to give this one a try.
