I'm feelin' kinda low, Apu. Got any of that beer that has candy floating in it? You know, Skittlebrau?
Last night, just for fun, I bravely made the Simpsons concoction Skittlebrau. Apparently, while mine was just a whim, someone took the Skittlebrau premise seriously enough to try finding the perfect mix between alcohol and Skittles! Though I'm not as brave as that guy was, mixing it with Bicardi or Coors. I tried mine with Yuengling Lager, and it was okay. The Skittles began to dissolve very fast when they hit the brew, and by the time I drained the glass, most of the outer candy coating had dissolved away.
The dissolved sugar gave the beer a slightly funny taste, but it wasn't noticeable until you hit the bottom of the glass. The candies themselves were rather soft afterwards, too, tasting almost bland.
In the end, though, it was a worthy experiment. And it just goes to show that The Simpsons can corrupt and inspire us in many more ways than we imagined.
