How To Make Skittles Vodka 

Easy Skittles Vodka Recipe

You will be amazed at how easy this is to do! It makes the perfect gift for any occasion too! 

Important Note! 

This recipe is to make one jar of Skittles vodka and you should separate the five colors because if you put all the colors in one jar, the resulting color is hideous.

So, if you would like a jar of each color, you will need to repeat this recipe for each color and jar.

Sort the Skittles

Easy Skittles Vodka Recipe

Begin by sorting the Skittles by color.

This separation is crucial for creating distinct and vibrant layers of flavor in your Skittles Vodka.

Add Skittles to Jars

Easy Skittles Vodka Recipe

Place the sorted Skittles into separate glass jars, dedicating one jar to each color.

Pour Vodka into Jars

Easy Skittles Vodka Recipe

 Using a funnel, pour the vodka into each jar, ensuring that the Skittles are fully submerged.

Seal the jars tightly with their lids.

Shake and Mix

Give each jar a good shake to initiate the infusion process.

The sugar coating on the Skittles will dissolve into the vodka, creating a flavorful and colorful concoction.

Infusion Time

Easy Skittles Vodka Recipe

Let the jars sit in the fridge for at least 24 hours but preferably up to 5 days.

You can periodically shake the jars to help the Skittles fully dissolve and infuse their flavors into the vodka.

Half way through the timeframe, turn the jars upside down and then turn then right side up the day before they are finished.

Strain the Mixture

Once they’re ready, pour each jar through a cheesecloth or similar item, for straining, to remove any unwanted debris from the remaining Skittles pieces. 

Bottle the Rainbow

 Use a funnel to pour the filtered Skittles Vodka into clear glass bottles for a striking presentation.

 Serve and Enjoy

 Your Skittles Vodka is now ready to be enjoyed!

Serve it over ice, use it as a base for colorful cocktails, or get creative with your own mixology experiments.

Tips For Making Amazing Skittles Vodka 

Easy Skittles Vodka Recipe

Keep stored inside the jar, with the lid, inside the fridge, for up to 1 month.

This will not freeze. Do not store outside the fridge or it will alter the taste of the drink and not for the better.

If you combine more than one color together, the outcome isn’t what you think it will be.

Take it from me, it will taste good, but look awful. This is why I separate the colors and only do one color per jar.

You’re welcome to add more or less Skittles to each jar, based on your flavor strength preferences.

Using a quality vodka will result in a better outcome.

Using cheap vodka with terrible flavor will result in a terrible outcome.

In other words, the vodka you choose makes all the difference in the quality of the final product.
