My boyfriend loves skittles. I was searching for the perfect Christmas gift. This was a no-brainer. Clearly.
First, I sorted out the skittles, 70 to a bowl:
Next, prepped my work station:
Poured the skittles into empty water bottles:
Poured about 6 oz of Everclear into each bottle:
Give them a good shake, and they will look like this:
Shake them on and off for the next 18 hours. (you can leave them overnight).
Then, using a strainer over a coffee filter, rain the mixture into new container (can be the final bottle). The strainer takes out the ‘gunk’ that clogs the filter. This way, only needs to be filtered once.
Ready for the freezer. Seems to last years, but usually it is gone sooner than that. I wouldn’t mind trying with some of the other skittle flavors (tropical has a cool aqua color), or mixing colors.
