There’s no match quite like Summer & Moonshine
Where White Lightning strikes, our glasses are sure to follow! These Moonshine Cocktails are the perfect shareable cocktails to pass around with your friends and family this summer.
Moonshine, also known as “White Lightning”, used to be completely illegal to make [and still without the right permits]. But now, many former bootleggers, turned licensed distillers, have been building the market for legal moonshine over last decade or so.
Moonshine on its own can be pretty strong – after all it is a high-proof distilled spirit. It’s what I like to refer to as a head shaker the first time you sip it. Luckily, manufacturers infuse moonshine with all sorts of flavors if the original taste isn’t to your liking.
If you consider yourself a True Blue American, you’ve probably have tried moonshine at some point in your adult life. But if you haven’t, these moonshine cocktails are a great place to start!
