    There’s nothing like a homemade gift to wow your friends and family during the holidays.  All it takes is a little time, a little planning, and a little work to make fabulous holiday gifts for everyone on your wish list.  During the next week I’ll be sharing five easy and wonderful homemade holiday gifts that I am personally giving this year for Christmas.

    First on the list is Skittles Vodka, perfect for those that enjoy flavored martinis or like to add a kick to an alcoholic beverage.  My favorite part of this flavored vodka is the brilliant colors of the finished vodka.  Another great twist is that you can make Skittles Vodka in any flavor that you can find the candy in.  I made lemon, lime, strawberry, and orange. 

     When giving the vodka I tied a ribbon around the lid and tied a bag of Skittles to each jar.  I’m also attaching a drink recipe to each flavor vodka.  This vodka is quick to make and is ready in a week.

Skittles Vodka
1 bottle vodka
10 fun sized packs Skittles

4 or 5 pint sized mason jars

1.  Divide the Skittles into colored piles.  Put all the Skittles of one color into each of the jars.  (I did not use purple because I hate grape flavoring).

2.  Fill each jar with vodka leaving 1/2 inch of room in the top.  Put the lid on and shake the jar for a minute.  Let it stand overnight.

3.  Continue shaking the jar each day for a week.  After the week is up either skim the sugary foam off the top or strain the mixture through cheesecloth.

4.  Tie a ribbon around the lid, attach a package of Skittles, and a recipe for using the flavored vodka.  Keep the lid on tight and use for up to 3 months.
