Certain combinations of things are practically fated to be together: peanut butter and jelly, nachos and cheese, Skittles and vodka. Skittles and vodka? Yes, and you can really taste the rainbow. Being a nearly flavorless high-proof alcohol with a vampire-like ability to suck the flavors out of things dumped into it, vodka can be shifted into a lot of flavor profiles, as we noted in our previous post on DIY infusions. Skittles are certainly not immune to such alchemical magic. Over at the appropriately named blog Mix That Drink, they’ve put together a detailed and photo-heavy tutorial for combining cheap candy and cheap vodka into a rainbow of palette-punching goodness. If you’re horrified by the idea of turning vodka, even the bottom shelf variety, into a fluorescent lime-flavored potion, don’t despair. You can easily swap out the swill for a bottle of the top shelf stuff and infuse it in a more gentile manner with anything you can imagine: vanilla beans, fruit, spices, and wherever your mind takes it.
