Moonshine nowadays is another name for an unaged whiskey, sometimes also called silver whiskey or white lightnin’. Here’s a simple moonshine recipe for the fighter in all of us:
2 Black Eyes (by Greg Mays)
- 3 oz moonshine
- 1 1/2 oz blackberry liqueur (I used Clear Creek)
- 4 dashes of Fee Bros. Whiskey Barrel Aged Bitters (buy at Amazon)
- stir with ice and strain into 2 chilled cocktail glasses
- garnish with brass knuckles and a switchblade
Make sure you make 2 of these. Otherwise, you’ll just have one black eye, and what’s the point of that?
