Don't Be Skittish About These Skittles Shots.


Hello fellow gelologists,

Happy New Year? For those in warmer climes, I hope you enjoyed champagne by the beach. For those of us in the cold, we had to content ourselves with ugly Christmas sweaters and gelatin shots.

Based on a suggestion from Allison in Connecticut, I made some Skittle liquor.

Skittles Liquor
Dissolve 8 Skittles pieces into 1/2 cup vodka and 1/2 cup peach schnapps in a glass container. Let sit for four hous. Strain using a coffee filter. The alcohol will have a brilliant color and nice tangy flavor.


From there, I made six different gelatin shots, one for each of the rainbow vodkas.

Red
3 oz box Strawberry Banana gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup of red Skittle liquor

Orange
3oz box of Orange gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup of orange Skittle liquor
2 Tbsp Triple Sec

Yellow
3oz box of lemon gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup of yellow Skittles liquor
2 Tbsp Limoncello

Green
3oz box of lime gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup of green Skittles liquor
2 Tbsp Southern Comfort

Blue
3oz box of berry blue gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup of blue Skittles liquor
2 Tbsp coconut rum

Purple
3oz box of grape gelatin
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
1 cup of purple Skittles liquor





Have a Happy January First!
