Skittes flavors make this drink fun! It’s an easy easy drink made with skittles candy candy.
I recently attended a little family get-together where a basketball game from earlier in the day was the hot topic of conversation.
Being the non-sports family that we are, we just watched the conversation with curiosity.
As a kid, I used to really enjoy watching basketball, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve been less and less interested in it. Unless someone I know is on the team.
If I’m ever invited to any sort of game day gathering, I’m always way more interested the food and drinks that will be served than I am in the actual game.
It’s just one of the fun little perks of being me.
This family basketball discussion inspired me to make this fun drink with Skittles. This is so The Lizard, our son, and the only member of the family interested in watching televised sports, can have some friends over to watch the game and have a fun drink.
I’m totally in love with how easy these are. It’s not really even a recipe. Just Skittles and lemon-lime soda.
These are so fun to make with kids, because as soon as the candies hit the soda, they start to fizz and the color leaches out. Kids can make their favorite flavor / color drink, or even have fun mixing candies to create new color combinations! Kids can still eat the candies after the drink is gone, too.
It could be a fun way to celebrate team colors as well. Make your drinks in your favorite team’s color, or make drinks in two different colors for the rival teams! Here in Utah, the college team rivalry is pretty intense, so people would for sure choose the drink of their team color.
This is also a great drink for baby showers! If you want a lighter or more subtle color, use fewer candies. Since Skittles come it lots of different flavors and colors, you can practically customize it to your favorite party shades.
By the way, don’t you love this giant bag of Skittles? I found this 54 oz. size at Sam’s Club. It’s the perfect thing to have around for a big tournament-watching party! You can also connect with other Skittles lovers on the Skittles Facebook page, and follow the Skittles Tourney!
The real bonus for me, not being tied to any one team, is that I can drink any color or flavor of Skittles Soda I want! And I kind of want one of each.
