People Are Making Squashies Vodka In Their Dishwashers And It Feels Like Freshers All Over Again
We all have memories of pouring a bag of Skittles into our illegally-procured vodka as teens and watching the colours dissolve and swirl into a mesmerising boozy mess. Good times.
Well now, we have the adult version - and we're SO keen to try this.
First shared by Facebook user Damion Styles, Squashies vodka sees the pink and white gummy sweet dissolved into the alcohol to transform it into a sweet milk and raspberry-flavoured spirit.
Unlike Skittles, which would gather at the bottom on the bottle as colourless white shells, this time the Squashies need to fully dissolve into the vodka - and the trick is to use a dishwasher.
"So... I thought I'd try the old vodka squashie trick. So glad I did. It's makes lush strong shots on their own," wrote Damion on Facebook.
Explaining the technique to Tyla, Damion says to get your bottle of vodka and begin by tipping out some vodka into a separate container. Then, pour in a bag of the sweets and top it back up with the remaining vodka if there's room.
"Put it in the dishwasher for a normal cycle," he explains. When you remove it, you'll find the heat from the wash has magically dissolved the sweets, creating a bubblegum pink vodka drink.
"Chill it in the fridge then drink it," Damion says. It's as simple as that.
Damion suggests drinking the drink as delicious-tasting shots or having with tonic, lemonade or cream soda for a mixer drink.
He warns: "If you try storing it a few days it's starts to jellify, so best to drink it within a couple of days."
If it works with Squashies then surely the same technique will work with a tonne of different gummy sweets? Imagine some Haribo Tangfastics, cherries or milk bottles in there.
We're 100% going to be trying this!
