Pick your Poison: Alcoholic Skittles Milkshake

Pick your Poison: Alcoholic Skittles Milkshake


Did someone say Alcohol?! And Skittles?! And Milkshake?!

Put them together in a blender and you get this little beauty!

Sweet, Fruity, Milky, and with a little Alcohol Kick at the end. Super fun for parties and BBQ’s and certain to give you that real novelty factor.

I used Tropical Skittles as that’s what we had knocking about, but any skittles would work perfectly. They would just give you a slightly different flavour.

Come get your milkshake on people! It’s almost summer!


(To make 4 tumblers of Milkshake)

1 packet of Skittles

6 Scoops of Ice Cream (I used a mixture of vanilla and strawberry)

500ml Cold Milk

100ml Vodka (I used Smirnoff Vanilla Vodka)*

*If  you want to make this milkshake kid friendly, just leave out the Vodka! It’s a really lovely one for them to have as a treat and my kids loved it!*


  1. Place the Skittles, Ice Cream, Vodka and Milk in a blender.
  2. Whizz for a couple of minutes in until you stop hearing large skittle pieces crashing about (It’s often better to pulse the blender on and off a few times to start with, just to get it going).
  3. Once finished, pour into tumblers and stick a straw in to slurp it up!
