Back in college we used to do something similar but we used jolly ranchers candy. It would dissolve fully and no need to strain. Enjoy.
Thank you Meli for sharing this recipe!
I use UV Vodka for Skittles Vodka, it is cheap http://bestvodka.net/best-vodka-under-10-dollars/
Delicious!! Thanks for the unique, fun recipe!
I just came across this recipe and can't wait to try it! Skittles are newly vegetarian too, so it's fun to be able to eat them again. I'll come back and review.
