    Kind of hoped someone might have posted some tips to help. :( All help is greatly appreciated.
    CC2 = £8687.86 ([STRIKE]£10000[/STRIKE] )CC1 = £0 ([STRIKE]£9983[/STRIKE] ); Reusing shopping bags savings =£5.80 vs spent £1.05.Wine is like opera. You can enjoy it even if you don't understand it and too much can give you a headache the next day J

    I've made these kinds of things before, and never had to worry (or just never bothered, as it was only going to get me drunk - aaahhh days gone by, eh) about using any particular vodka. Vodka in itself seems to be pretty much-of-a-muchness really, they all taste the same to me as I never drink it straight. I'd just go for the cheapest one you can find.

    You can buy these fairly readily 'off the shelf' at the Polish shops which are springing up all over. The Poles themselves tend to drink it straight but there is a sort of niche market. Zubrowka is the best known make.

    I am very lucky to have a "make your own beer and wine shop" fairly local (website:http://www.hopshopuk.com/), so I'd get my bottles from there - the ones with the proper rubber-bung-thing-attatched-to-a-wire-flip-top kind of lid. They also come on fancy bottles of Grolsch beer.

    If you're going to use the same bottle as the vodka came in, you should just need to put the empty bottle (while the vodka is in another container - jug or similar) in a bowl of hot water with some washing up liquid in it. Leave it for a while, and the label usually just ends up floating off. If you're left with any sticky stuff, that should come off easily with isopropanol, or videohead-cleaner.

    If I want to make skittles vodka, do I just put skittles into a bottle of vodka and leave them to disolve? Or do I need to do something to them first?

    Hi xzibit,

    This is one of the original skittles vodka posts which might help you.

    Edit: just found another one.......it says to take the green skittles out.

    If you have one of the brita water filters, when it is at the end of life, use it to filter your cheap vodka and it makes it a lot smoother tasting. This then seems to make it take on the flavours that you add.

    So far we've made:
    Toffee Vodka (3 packets of crushed worther's originals)
    Skittles Vodka (large packet of skittles minus the green ones)
    Cherry Vodka (on cheap in Sainsbury's at the time)
    Raspberry Vodka (again, cheap in Sainsburys)

    Now all we need to do is find some cheap nice bottles!
