ok this might sound weird but i made up a new drink i was board the other day and pour a handfull of skitles in to a waterbottle. for ****s and giggles i poured rum into the bottle, twice as much and the skitles it took about 5 or 6 hours for them to disolve just sitting there, would have taken less if you had more rum or shook it. the suff will seporate but if you shake it up and drink it (good shooter) it is really really good, if youlike skitles, it sweetand you get a skitle after taste. its a rumskit!!!!!
