I joined BabyCenter.com when I was pregnant with Goose, and within BabyCenter there is a group called Crafty Mamas which I joined. A couples months before Christmas they started a post called "Homemade Gifts" where I found this gift idea...
So what is the gift you ask??? Jolly Rancher Vodka!
Here's how I made it:
- Jolly Ranchers
- 5 Mini-Vodka Bottles
- 1 Large Bottle of Vodka
Empty out our mini-vodka bottles and use Goo-Gone to clean off the labels, and wash them with soap and water. Alternatively, you could also purchase empty clear glass flasks for this. I personally could not find inexpensive glass flasks, so that's why I opted to go this route.
Unwrap your Jolly Rachers and place in your flasks/bottles. I used 3 of each color for my 2.5oz bottles. Next, fill your bottles with vodka. Make sure to leave some space at the top because as the Jolly Ranchers dissolve, it will fill the bottle more. Now you just let them sit on the counter until the candy dissolves!
Here's what they will start to look like:
And what they will look like when they're all done!
