My Fellow Inebriates,
What a shocking color! They’re sexy, they’re vivid…But why would we do this? What on earth are we doing to perfectly good vodka?
First of all, what do Skittles taste like? Plenty of Skittles came home in the old Halloween bags this year, so I had a chance to sample them.
Skittles are super-sweet, pseudo-fruity little pebbles, chewy with hard shells. Main constituents: “sugar, corn syrup, and hydrogenated palm kernel oil along with fruit juice, citric acid, and natural and artificial flavours.” Mmmmm!!
So of course I’m ready to devote a giant bottle of Stolichnaya to the creation of Skittle Booze. Aren’t you?
It all raises the question of the age group liquor is marketed to. Certainly I’m on board with the whole idea, being a Skittles-generation bear, but my parents are too old to consider it. It’s too fun for them, too hip, too young. It crosses the line into candyland liquor that they can’t reconcile with a very dry gin martini.
Basically, they’re being killjoys again and telling me I can’t make Skittles Vodka. So I want YOU to do it, friends, and tell me all about it!
