2 Black Eyes Cocktail

2 Black Eyes Cocktail

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 BittersĀ (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?
