How To Make Dishwasher Vodka At Home
The ingredients you will need include:
- A bottle of vodka (preferably one with a tight screw cap)
- Pack of favorite candies, be it skittles, Jelly babies, or Werther’s Originals
- A dishwasher
- Keep about 3/4th vodka in the bottle. Now, smash your candies a bit with the help of anything you like.
- Put your smashed lollies in the 3/4th filled vodka bottle and screw its cap very tightly. Wrap the vodka bottle in a clean wrap to prevent the contents of the bottle from leaking.
- Now, put the vodka bottle on the top shelf of your dishwasher. Don’t put detergent in the dishwasher detergent box. Leave it empty.
- Run your dishwasher at the highest heat setting. You can use the rest of the dishwasher too while doing this.
- Once the cycle is finished, carefully remove the bottle as it would be hot. Shake it a bit if you see any undissolved solids in the bottle and keep the bottle straight to let it cool down.
- Shake it well again once it has reached room temperature. Serve it chilled by using crushed ice. You can keep this bottle in the refrigerator and chill it down completely to enhance its flavor.
- You can serve the flavored vodka from the bottle as well. If you find candy solids in it, you can strain the vodka before serving it too.
Which Candies To Use For Vodka?
For making dishwasher vodka, candies are as important as the selection of vodka and using the dishwasher.
Using some candies can waste your vodka. How cheap it would have been, you will miss out on the chance to enjoy it neat as well. Therefore, the right selection of candies is important to make your try foolproof. Some of the different flavored candies you can use include:
Use skittles only if you have the patience to separate all the colors individually. Adding mixed colored skittles will turn your dishwasher vodka into an ugly looking dark brown and black color.
Choosing colors like green or yellow would result in better color flavored vodka.

Besides these, you can try varied flavored candies of TJ MAXX, Marshalls, Home Good, Pear drops, Jolly ranchers, and experiment with other candies as well on your own.
This vodka could also act great as a go-to drink for Christmas, Halloween, and New Year parties as well. Plus, you save yourself from the hassle of preparing a vodka cocktail as well.
How Do Dishwasher Vodka Works?
When you run your dishwasher at its hottest setting, which may vary from 60 degrees C to 70 degrees C, this heat is enough to melt down the candies inside the bottle and infuse better flavor into the alcohol. This temperature is perfect for heating alcohol, too, without burning it off.
Shaking it well after completing the cycle and putting it in the refrigerator to chill further complements vodka’s taste with candies providing a distinct yet flavorful aroma and touch to it.
Moreover, you don’t have to stick to one kind of flavor with dishwasher vodka. You can experiment with the different flavors of candies and get sweet and tangy surprising taste every time.
