A trend has been making its way around the blogosphere recently of spiking candy with vodka. It’s pretty easy to set up. First, get your favorite “gummie” style candy and put it in a bowl. Next, fill the bowl with vodka until all the candy is covered. Finally, let it sit covered in the refrigerator for 3-5 days, stirring a couple of times every day. When it’s done, the candy will be swollen with vodka.
Taking it the opposite way for candy spiked vodka, hard candy like Jolly Ranchers can be dropped into vodka for added flavor. Just let the candy sit in the vodka at room temperature until it melts. This process can take a day, though, so plan in advance!
