You may have seen or attemped Skittles-infused vodka, but if you're looking to spook your tastebuds (this Halloween or otherwise), then you've got to try these Sour Patch Kids rainbow shots, made from infusing the sour-sweet candies into vodka. Yes, they will make your mouth pucker, and yes you'll want to have a bowl of the kid-shaped gummies to chomp on once you've braved your colorful shot.

Sour Patch Kids-Infused Vodka

Ingredients

  1. Vodka
    Sour Patch Kids, colors divided

Directions

  1. In clean, airtight glass jars (we used mason jars), fill each halfway with Sour Patch Kids. Top with vodka, then seal. Allow to infuse over a week, shaking the jars periodically. 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 Sour Patch Kids have turned white (signally all the color and flavor is infused), 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 blue so the colors don't bleed. Discard the gummies (they taste awful). Wash the bottles thoroughly, then return each strained Sour Patch Kids vodka to the bottles. Cool in the fridge or freezer.
  3. To serve, simply pour into shot glasses and go for it!
