Everybody knows that if you’re looking to brighten up a big bowl of candy you have to mix in at least one bag of sweet, colorful Skittles. The little chewy treats are basically a guaranteed good time too ’cause you get to tilt your head back and toss them into your mouth and pretend you’re a candy-loving seal or something. But while the candies by themselves are most definitely delicious, when their tangy, outrageous flavors — and psychedelic colors — are infused into a nice cold cocktail, you get a concoction that vibrates with different wavelengths of light and gets you in the mood to sing like Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz. So in honor of tasting the tipsy rainbow, here are five of the sexiest Skittles cocktails you’ll ever see.
1. Skittles Vodka
Vodka is amazing, of course. But infuse the clear alcohol with all stripes of the Skittles rainbow and you add a whole new realm of flavors and rich, almost radioactive, colors to the essential liquor. In the clip below, we show you how to make some very simple, yet very sexy, Skittles vodkas that you can use for little fruity flavored shots, or in other mixed drinks that call for sweet tastes.
2. Smirnoff Ice Skittles Bombs
Next up we have a full array of Smirnoff Ice Skittles Bombs, which are explosively colorful and again, super easy to make. All you need to do here is drop your favorite flavor of Skittle into a Smirnoff Ice and bang, you have a tall bottle of brightly colored brew (or maybe liquor if you’re outside of the States). Try throwing these bad boys in the freezer for a while if you want to slush up all this sexiness.
3. Skittles Slushies
Speaking of slushing up Skittles drinks, here we have our Skittles Slushies. You know that richly colored and flavored Skittles Vodka we mentioned up top? All you need to do is take any one of those flavors — or all of them, we won’t judge — throw it into a blender with some ice, and blend it all up into a nice chunky-yet-smooth booze bath for your mouth. And yes, your tongue will be turning the same color as whatever you’re drinking.
4. Skittles Popsicles
Kick up the frigid factor of your Skittles cocktails a few notches with these Skittles Popsicles. Trust us when we say these frozen treats will have you looking slick while you lick the rainbow. To make them, all you need to do is grab some of that Skittles Vodka, pour it into some popsicle molds, and add in lemon lime soda. Once they’re fully frozen, these popsicles are perfect as a cold treat on a hot day.
5. The Sour Skittles Rainbow
For this final take on the Skittles cocktail, we have something that will make you tipsy, brain frozen, and all puckered up at the same time — it’s The Sour Skittles Rainbow, and if you have some of those masochistic taste buds that love getting slapped with some sourness, this is the drink for you. Blend up some Skittles-infused vodka with ice as well as a few other ingredients, and the result is a real tall glass of prismatic booze-infused deliciousness.
