Moonshine – a whiskey that’s as versatile as vodka and can be enjoyed over ice or mixed in a cocktail. Historically, moonshine was an illegally-made spirit distilled from corn, wheat, rye, barley and/or sugar – unaged, clear in color and high proof. In Virginia, Franklin County was the center of American liquor production and became known as the Moonshine Capital of the World once Prohibition was declared. Today, moonshine is a spirit that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways!
This summer the mixin’s easy with our featured cocktail recipes! Take a classic Margarita mix and add rum to craft a “Rum-arita.” Or mix your Piña Colada with moonshine and put a twist on a seasonal delight. For something bubbly, try a spirit and soda with the garnish of your choice. To craft an easy summer cocktail, all you need is one of our cocktail mixers, your choice of spirit and a garnish to enjoy!
