Skittles Moonshine

  • Author: Alex Morgan


Skittles Moonshine – a colorful and flavorful libation that promises to dazzle your guests with its rainbow hues and irresistible taste.


  • 1 (750 ml) bottle of Everclear (or other high-proof alcohol)
  • 1 cup Skittles candies (separate into colors if desired)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar


  1. Prepare the Skittles Infusion:
    • Separate the Skittles candies by color if desired, placing each color into its own small jar or container.
    • Pour Everclear over the Skittles candies in each jar, ensuring that they are completely covered by the alcohol.
    • Seal the jars tightly with lids and shake them vigorously to dissolve the candy coating into the alcohol.
    • Let the jars sit at room temperature for at least 24 hours, shaking them occasionally to help dissolve the candies.
  2. Create the Simple Syrup:
    • In a saucepan, combine water and granulated sugar.
    • Heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sugar is completely dissolved to create a simple syrup.
    • Let the simple syrup cool to room temperature before proceeding.
  3. Combine and Mix:
    • Once the Skittles candies have infused into the alcohol for 24 hours, strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a large mixing bowl or pitcher to remove any remaining candy debris.
    • Add the cooled simple syrup to the infused alcohol, stirring to combine and create the Skittles moonshine mixture.
  4. Bottle and Store:
    • Transfer the Skittles moonshine mixture into clean glass bottles or mason jars for storage.
    • Seal the bottles or jars tightly and store them in a cool, dark place until ready to serve.
  5. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Serve the Skittles moonshine chilled or over ice as a colorful and flavorful party drink that’s sure to impress your guests with its rainbow hues and irresistible taste.


Enjoy responsibly, and be cautious when consuming high-proof alcohol.
