Flavoured Vodka Part Two

24 Oct

Searching for flavoured vodka on the internet brings up many ready-made concoction (birthday cake flavour anyone?) and lots of recipes that involves simply adding skittles to bottles of vodka but the main points of praise for these seems to be you end up with coloured sugar water- not what I’m looking for.

But in the interests of research – and those with a sweeter tooth than mine- I’m going to make one of the popular variations on the internet- Werther’s Original Vodka.

The recipe is simple enough- crush up 1/2 small pack of the sweets (this turned out to be 13 of them) and add to 350ml of vodka.

A lot of the recipes involve putting the whole bottled concoction into a dishwasher to speed up the process but I have 8 days until we’ll be drinking this so I’ve got time to let them naturally dissolve. If after 5 or so days it’s not happening I may rethink and use heat to speed it all up.
