The Quickest Way to Make Skittles Vodka

Ingredients

  1. Vodka
  2. Skittles, colors divided

Directions

  1. In clean, airtight glass jars (we used mason jars), fill each halfway with Skittles. Top with vodka, then seal. Allow to infuse overnight. Alternatively, speed up the process by running the jars through a dishwasher on a standard cycle with no soap (but be sure the containers you are using are airtight).
  2. After the Skittles have (mostly) dissolved, strain each of the colors separately through cheesecloth or a coffee filter to strain out any remaining particles, starting with yellow, then orange, then red. Use separate filters for green and purple so the colors don't bleed. Wash the bottles thoroughly, then return each strained Skittles vodka to the bottles. Cool in the fridge or freezer.
  3. To serve, simply pour into shot glasses and go for it!
