Moonshine Mixers You Should Know
Moonshine Mixers You Should Know!
Just in time for the Holiday’s here is 7 Moonshine Mixers You Should Know.
MOONSHINE MIXER: GINGER ALE
Combining moonshine with ginger ale is as close to drinking moonshine neat as you’re going to get. The sweetness from ginger ale will just help it go down a little smoother. To highlight moonshine’s distinct flavor, combine moonshine with ginger ale and enjoy with your pals while camping or around a bonfire. Adding ginger ale to flavored moonshines is also a great choice. For a quick cocktail, try it with our apple pie moonshine, in a 2:1 ratio of ginger ale to moonshine. Perfect for the holiday.
MOONSHINE MIXER: COKE
You can never go wrong with the undeniably refreshing and bubbly taste of coke as a mixer for any libation. Since moonshine is whiskey, adding coke is just playing on the old favorite of whiskey and coke. Certain sweeter, corn-heavy moonshines have cola notes, so combining moonshine with coke is as natural as a Kentuckian to have whiskey, bourbon, and moonshine on hand. Moonshine and coke can be enjoyed year-round and is perfect to serve at a last-minute gathering with friends and family.
MOONSHINE MIXER: GRAPEFRUIT JUICE
Always a favorite for cocktails, grapefruit juice’s bright and bitter notes pair well with moonshine, bringing out the best of both beverages. Serve moonshine and grapefruit juice with a grapefruit wedge as a poor man’s Paloma at your next Taco Tuesday. Or, try something a little different by combining equal parts grapefruit and our apple pie moonshine (yes, you read that right) in a salted-rim highball glass with a lime wedge—ideal for those last summer days before fall.
MOONSHINE MIXER: ORANGE JUICE
Sweeter than grapefruit juice, but just as bright in flavor, orange juice is a fresh, upbeat moonshine mixer. Use orange juice with moonshine for your pals that have a sweeter tooth. For a poolside concoction that will make you feel like you’re sunbathing in Kokomo, try a Coconut Sunrise—a refreshing blend of coconut moonshine, grenadine, and orange juice garnished with maraschino cherries and shredded coconut.
MOONSHINE MIXER: LEMONADE
No other beverage is more distinctly summer than lemonade. Moonshine’s power and lemonade’s sweetness is as perfect a pair as sunshine and tan lines. For an easy one-two knockout punch, combine equal parts of moonshine and lemonade in a pitcher to enjoy at your next summer cookout. For an easy batch cocktail ideal for a tailgate on a hot day, use frozen lemonade and sparkling lemonade for an easy batch cocktail, Lemon Blueberry Moonshine Slush.
MOONSHINE MIXER: ICED TEA
A close second to lemonade in the most-distinctly summer beverage, iced tea is a great moonshine mixer. We recommend using bottled iced tea as opposed to a home-brewed version, as it easy to overdo the combo. Try equal parts sweet tea and apple pie moonshine, garnished with a lemon wedge, for an easy-breezy libation to be enjoyed on a lazy summer day. Or, combine iced tea, lemonade, and moonshine for a boozy Arnold Palmer to be enjoyed after completing the back nine.
MOONSHINE MIXER: OTHER WINE & SPIRITS
It seems like a no-brainer, but you can never go wrong with using another alcoholic beverage as a mixer in a cocktail. Mix equal parts of Sweet Vermouth and moonshine for a strong, stirred drink to be enjoyed after a long week. Or, try a Moonshine Margarita, using lime juice, simple syrup, and Triple Sec in a 1:2 ratio to moonshine, perfect for fajitas with family and friends.
