With so many vodka flavors out there, you may be thinking, Why should I make my own? Because this is about Jolly Ranchers! As many of you know, I don't do a lot of drinking, maybe a few fruity drinks a year, but another Vingler wanted to do a collaboration between DIY and alcoholic beverages. You can visit @MarshallEdgar's drinks collection here.

Supplies Needed:

vodka (unflavored)
airtight containers (Ikea has bottles like these)
Jolly Ranchers (about 10-12 pieces per small bottle)
Divide the Jolly Ranchers up by color, adding 10-12 pieces per bottle. This will help both the color and the flavor stay true to the candy. You can add more candy than this if you want something super sweet and intense.
Using a funnel, pour the unflavored vodka into the bottles.
After about one hour in the vodka, the Jolly Ranchers began to break down. This is the time you want to shake the bottle up. Let it sit over night.
By the next morning, give the vodka a good and vigorous shake. The candy should be completely dissolved and ready for cocktails!
If you enjoyed this diy, (and I hope you did), then I will be doing a few more in collaboration with @MarshallEdgar. You can see my other diy projects here.

I haven't actually tried it myself. I don't drink often. I created a DIY as par of a collaboration with another vingler. Sorry, @rodiziketan
oh, no worries, I was just curious. @DaniaChicago
I didn't know there were so many in the cocktails community. @MarshallEdgar said I said it was a good idea to branch out and explore other communities. It's cool. @rodiziketan
This is so hilarious to me because I remember back in my early twenties when we used to cram as many ranchers into our drinks as we could. This just brings back memories. I'm totally making this. >__< <3
LOL That's a great memory @Danse. Let me know how it turns out for you!
