Skittles Infused Vodka, one of our highly requested vodka infusions. Unlike many other infusions, there are not many alternatives to the flavors of a Skittles vodka besides making it yourself; I don’t think Skittles are big advocates of making alcoholic spirits with their product–but we are!
Making the infusion is fairly easy: split the colors and fill 1/3rd of of a jar with a color. Repeat for all five colors and let them sit for 24-hours until all the product is absorbed into the vodka. This leaves you with a white gooey sludge floating on the top of the vodka which requires filtration.
The second phase of our Skittles vodka is to remove the white sludge from the top. This product is chalky, oily and sticks to most of the things it touches, including coffee filters. So, we took the Aeropress for a ride and, wow, this thing made the job easy! While I do plan to use this in a week or so to filter my latest coconut rum infusion, it got the job done for our skittles vodka in short time. Each vodka bottle (375ml absolute bottle) took six-minutes to filter out with the Aeropress–a worthy time!
Overall, there is how we went about creating our Skittles Vodka, infused with real skittles and filtered with an Aeropress.
