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

Watermelon Martinis Eclipse in Chelsea is my favourite cocktail bar in London. Forget the music, forget the groups of beautiful people lounging on the sofas, there's one reason this place tops my list. The watermelon martinis. Naan Owning a dairy goat means having a lot of dairy products on hand at all times. A while back, I got a little carried away and made a gallon and a half of homemade yogurt at one time. We’ve been eating it every day in various different forms: with berry sauce, on cereal, as fruity frozen yogurt, and in my secret pancake recipe. Naan, a traditional Indian flatbread, is one more way to use up extra yogurt.

Here are some of your favorites and most likely some you’ve never seen.

The Visual Miscellaneum One of the best perks of blogging here is all the free stuff people send me. Like, today, for instance, I opened my mail and found one of the more attractive books I've ever laid eyes on. It's by David McCandless and it's called The Visual Miscellaneum, a Colorful Guide to the World's Most Consequential Trivia. (Right up our alley, eh?) McCandless is a London-based writer and graphic designer who thinks the best way to absorb information is by mapping facts in colorful and cool/quirky ways.

Scottish Farmhouse Eggs Decided to mix things up and do a recipe. This is one I’ve made forever and I’m not 100% positive where I picked it up. It is always a crowd pleaser for brunch or breakfast.

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.

Chocolate Guinness Goodness Recipe at Epicurious Editor's note: This recipe was developed by Shane Philip Coffey, the chef at Alias restaurant on New York City's Lower East Side. This rich and luscious dessert came about because I needed a special dessert for a St. Patrick's Day tasting menu. I was on a mission to use my favorite beer, Guinness, something I consider to be one of Ireland's gifts to the world.

Watermelons: Nature's Keg Still pumping your watermelons full of rum? What is this, summer camp? It’s time to grow up and start converting your watermelons into kegs. The instructions for the Watermelon Keg come from none other than the National Watermelon Promotion Board—which surprisingly is an actual thing. Essentially you slice off a thin layer from the bottom end, slice open the top, scoop out the meat (or liquefy with booze), and jam a spigot in the front. Presto!

Braided Spaghetti Bread & The official blog of Americas favorite frozen dough We are carb lovers at our house, so when I saw the Braided Spaghetti Bread recipe in the Rhodes Home Baked Family Favorites with frozen dough cookbook I knew we would love it. This is a really simple recipe; it just takes a little planning for thawing the dough. It will take 2-3 hours for the bread loaf to thaw to room temperature or 1-2 hours for the rolls to thaw to room temperature. You will need:

Pepperoni Pizza Monkey Bread How do you make bread even better? You stuff it with pepperoni and cheese. Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!)
