Skittles Vodka Tutorial

Skittles Vodka Tutorial
Infusing vodka with Skittles is a very popular trend right now. There are a couple of different ways to do it. My way involves separating all the Skittles into their separate flavors and making five different bottles of Skittles vodka. For this project, you’ll need: One 1.75 liter bottle of vodka (I used Stoli – you don’t need the most expensive vodka, but do avoid the cheap ones)Five 8.5 ounce flasks or bottles (buy them from Amazon – here’s another that looks like a retro milk jug. For a Halloween party, serve these neon-colored concoctions in test tube shooter glasses.)One 1 pound bag of SkittlesFive empty plastic water bottlesA funnelBowls for separating the Skittles into flavorsA measuring cup (not pictured)Coffee filters or paper towels

The Astounding Design Of Eixample, Barcelona Constructed in the early 20th century, Eixample is a district of the Spanish city of Barcelona known for the urban planning that divided the district into octagonal blocks. Influenced by a range of schools of architecture, Eixample Barcelona was designed in a grid pattern with long streets, wide avenues, and rounded street corners. Despite being in the center of a thriving European metropolis, the district provides improved living conditions for inhabitants including extensive sun light, improved ventilation, and more open green space for public use. And of course, the result from the grid-like structure is astounding from above:

The 20 Best Movie Drinking Games It's St Patrick's Day, and no doubt the pressure is on to head downtown for a few jars this evening (or, if you're a student, when doors open). For the budding film fanatic, though, that cuts into viewing time, so here's the ideal way to keep inebriates and cinephiles alike happy. We've compiled some of the best movie drinking games from the collective wisdom of web-based boozers, as well as adding a few on our own. Sci-fi, gangster flicks, comedies and thrillers, classics and modern hits are all catered for. All of these will get you wasted while doing the public service of keeping you off the streets.

Drinking Game: Rez-a-Roller Everyone sits at a table, and takes turns rolling two six-sided dice. Direction of play starts counter-clockwise. With each roll there is an effect, one for each individual die, and possibly one for the combination of them. Single-Die Effects: 1 = Roller Drinks 2 = The Bitch Drinks (we'll get to that later) 3 = Person to Your Left Drinks 4 = Person to Your Right Drinks 5 = Social, Everyone Drinks 6 = You Pick 1 Person to Drink So, for starters, say you roll a 1 and a 5.

How To Make Vodka Infusions Lately I've gotten into creating infused Vodka. This basically means adding fruits, herbs, and spices to Vodka in order to create a uniquely flavored liquor. There are plenty of sites out there with tips for infusers, recipes for infusions, and cocktail recipes. Blow Pop Martini Jelly Shot Blow Pop Martini Jelly Shots, watermelon and sour apple flavors I blame my current candy-inspired cocktail obsession on Three Olives Bubble Gum Flavored vodka, 100%. Although it is unusual for me to steer towards sweet cocktails, I find myself completely overcome with infatuation for this spirit.

For example, one site listed the Bocci Ball (don’t know what it is, probably never will as in 12 years no one has ever ONCE asked me for one). Or the Freddy Fudpacker (aka The Cactus Banger) – once again NEVER HEARD anyone order either of these ever ONCE. I’m not naming any drinks on this list where the ingredients are the name i.e. vodka tonic, amaretto sour, or gin and juice. 1.

Cake Batter Martinis This has my name alllll over it. I know I just shared a big, fuzzy drink with you yesterday but before you go voting me off the island, hear me out. I.couldn’t.help.it.

I strive my hardest to develop recipes to share with you guys that are simple, easy, and most importantly – filled with accessible ingredients that you most likely have on hand.

Marinated Feta Recipe There’s lots of feta-like cheese out there, but only cheese made in Greece is considered true feta nowadays and you can’t call it feta anymore unless it was produced there. Like Champagne, which has to be made in Champagne or Brie de Meaux which has to be made is Meaux, it isn’t feta unless it’s made where it’s supposed to be made—in Greece. Although I’m not much of a font of knowledge about a lot of things, if it’s food-related, I’ll do in a pinch. If you want to make something that’s impressive and incredibly simple to put together, maybe I can help you out there as well. This is a favorite around here and once you make it, you’ll be rewarded in the days following with salty chunks of cheese infused in a sublime bath of fruity olive oil scented with summery herbs.

Brown Butter Double Fudge Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cookies Little bit of a mouthful there. But it’s like a cookie on top of another cookie! Yeah.

(45 ml) of vodka in each shot, respectively. Eat them responsibly. 1Start with a 3-ounce (85 g) package of Jello. Lime and orange flavors are ideal, as they will taste similar to vodka-based mixed drinks. Cherry may leave your Jello with a flavor reminiscent of cough syrup. Berry blue and grape are not recommended either. 2Mix the powder with 1/2 cup of boiling water.
