Sugarlands Distilling Co. has been sponsoring the podcast for the last few episodes or so, and I have been thinking of creative ways to use moonshine in cocktails.
Tequila cocktails are usually a very good fit, as blanco tequilas and moonshine are most similar in their flavor palates, and I’ve made Moonshine Margaritas pretty often. I started to think about the classic cocktail recipes, too, and test out drinks that would be a good fit for moonshine as well, and recently on the podcast, we made a Mooonshine Collins that was awesome. Here’s how you do it:
- in a collins glass filled with ice, add:
- 2 oz Sugarlands Silver Cloud Moonshine
- 1 oz lemon juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- stir well, add more ice to top off, then top with club soda and stir briefly
- garnish with a cherry and a lemon wedge
