above: strawberry-orange & raspberry flavored vodka flasks
Over the weekend it was Purim, the Halloween/Carnival-esque holiday of the Jewish year. In honor of this festive debauchery, some friends came over, and we drank a good deal of these homemade candy-flavored vodkas. Mixed with gingerale or tonic, with a little lime on the side, they were amazing. I also made a Fruit Punch flavor, which wound up being pretty popular and never made it into a photograph (but really, they're all pink, so you get the idea).
I got the cute little glass flasks at the Container Store - I love them.
If you want to make your own Jolly Rancher vodka, I used about 8-9 pieces of candy per ~250ml of vodka. I used empty water bottles to dissolve the candies into the vodka (because I gave them a few good shakes in the process), and then funneled the end product into the flasks. Super easy!
PS - I'm so glad it's March, I have so many exciting things coming up this month!!
