Skittles Vodka and Sour Dough English Muffins

 Last night my daughter and I made Skittles Vodka . I have become a You Tube junkie. I am always looking for things I can make myself. When I first found this I wasn't sure about making it since we are not really drinkers. My husband said he could give it as gifts to the guys at work. That's all I need to hear.
 Don't they look pretty. The first step is easy. Just put 10 skittle to 1 oz of Vodka. The next step you can keep. This is a straining nightmare. First you have to strain it thru cheese cloth . Then three to four times thru coffee filters. Using your fingers to squeeze the liquid thru the filter.   Sounds easy,not so. First you have to wash the containers  and strainer after ( each time) you pour it thru the filter. It takes about 5 times of straining to get the liquid clear . That's a lot of washing dishes.
You are straining out the white film of the candy .
 And last but not least ,your hands will be stained from the color coating of the Skittles. Don't get me wrong the taste was really good. But not worth the work for me. The next batch will be made from Jolly Ranchers. NO STRAINING!!!!  We are also making Apple Pie Moon Shine.  I will probably keep some of that one for myself.
Thought I would let you know how the muffins turned out. They are a little denser then the regular one. But the flavor is very good. My husband loves them. Next on the menu is Apple Sour Dough Cake.


  1. Apple pie... looks so yummy... Do you have your own recipe? Please, share... thank you.

  2. Definitely something different. The English muffins look yummy.

  3. You are most adventurous trying all of these new recipes. I wouldn't want all that stain on my dainty fingers either! The scones look great. Oh, I would love for you to sit at my table with me. I wouldn't make you cook anything! :)
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  4. I've never heard of flavoring vodka with candy! Imagine the possibilities!

  5. Your English muffins are beautiful and Apple Pie moonshine sounds like something I would like. ;)

  6. Oh! I can only imagine the fun of taste testing at your house!! (:
