Mixed Drinks with Skittle Vodka




So now that you have made your Skittle Vodka I am sure you are wondering what the heck to do with it, right??  That is a very easy answer – anything you want!  

Here are a few mixed drink recipe ideas – a few pretty basic ones and then a couple fancier ones. 


All of these were made using a standard shot glass as the measuring cup.

Diet Coke and Citrus Vodka - add lime or lemon Vodka to diet Coke.  Ratio will depend on how strong you like your drinks – I usually add 1 oz of vodka to 4 oz of pop

Flavored Sprite – pick any of the vodka flavor(s) and add them to Sprite (mixing the red Skittle and purple Skittle vodka was my favorite!).  Again the ratio will depend on personal taste but I do a 1:4 oz ratio. 

Hard Strawberry Lemonade - Add red Skittle Vodka to lemonade. 

Hard Lemon Iced Tea - Add yellow Skittle vodka to iced tea.


These last two are a little fancier and would be perfect with a little umbrella in them on the beach! 

In a tall glass with ice.
Mix:
1 ½ oz of red Skittle vodka
2 oz pineapple juice
1 oz orange juice
3 oz Sprite


In a tall cup, fill it half way with ice.

Layer:
½ oz lime Skittle vodka
½ oz orange Skittle vodka
½ oz red Skittle vodka

Add:
3 oz orange juice
3 oz Sprite

Stir and add a splash of Grenadine



The last two drinks don't have names - it was a hmm what do I have in the fridge kind of mixing - so I am going to leave it up to you to name them!  Leave a comment with what you think the names of the last two drinks should be!  


Have you made Skittle vodka yet?  If so, what do you mix it with?

    1. Hi Amanda! I have never heard of that brand of vodka before but if you make Skittle vodka with it (receipe here: http://www.nelsnook.com/2013/01/how-to-make-skittle-vodka.html) you will have to let me know how it turns out!

    2. Great ideas. Boring sometimes just having shots of Skittles vodka.

      I'll be using some of these ideas around Xmas! :)

  2. Can I use orange skittle vodka in place of a orange vodka in drinks like 007 or would it be too sweet?

    1. Hi Kaitlyn,
      Sorry the for the delay with my response. I have used it in place of other flavored vodkas - it does add a little more sweetness so usually I just add a little less of whatever else I am mixing it with.

      If you try it let me know what you think!
