There are a lot of different recipes to make Skittles shots, but they do have some things in common. They are all fruity, tasty and they all taste like the colorful little candies you love so much. Try one or try all of them! Another idea is to infuse vodka with the individual flavors of Skittles and serve those straight, but otherwise, these are our best recipe recommendation

Skittles Shot 1

Pour one shot of flavored vodka and one shot of soda. You can choose from apple, grape, strawberry or any other fruit.

Drop three skittles into the soda while you take the shot of vodka. Make sure to choose skittles with similar flavors.

Chase the vodka with the shot of soda.

Skittles Shot 2

Pour ¼ oz. of apple, grape, watermelon and cherry schnapps into a shaker over ice.

Shake it to mix. Strain.

Make this in large quantities for a party. Make sure to use four parts each of the schnapps. Pour into shot glasses.

Skittles Shot 3

Pour 1/2 oz. of plain vodka, 1/2 oz. of cranberry juice, 1/2 oz. of sweet and sour mix, 1/4 oz. of creme de banana and 1/4 oz. of grenadine into a shaker over ice.

Shake it to mix. Strain.

Pour into the shot glasses.


Try experimenting with different ingredients to see what works best for you.


Avoid drinking and driving. If you are making these shots at a party, make sure that you have people who can give those drinking a ride home. Don't drink to excess, which can have harmful health effects.
