Gift idea time – skittle flavoured vodka!

The 1st of December is here! Which means only a few weeks of hand making gift opportunities left before crimbo! Here’s one I’ve done for a few of the ladies in my life! Skittle flavoured vodka!

I bought some 250ml Kilner clip top bottles, filled them with vodka and popped in about 20 of their favourite coloured skittle. It’s best to stick to one colour of skittle type in each bottle as it could look quite mucky in colour if you went for the fruit salad option!

Leave them to stand for about 3 days, and by the power of magic the skittles disappear! You’ll need to filter them a few times though to drain away some of the sugary sediment left at the bottom of the bottle. Either grab some muslin and pour the vodka over it into another container, or a paper coffee filter works well. When you’re done pour the magic juice back into your bottles and design a tag to go around the neck.

I wrote some serving suggestions of ways best to enjoy – with lemonade and ice or neat on the rocks!

Great prezzy for alcohol drinking chummys – it taste delicious and it will be made with lurrrrve 🙂
