Don’t you wish you could have moonshine for every occasion? Well, you can.
You know that TV show “Moonshiners”? Well, Tickle from the Discovery Channel show about illegal moonshine brewers in the Appalachian Mountains made a Christmas-specific ‘shine perfect for the holidays.
Check out how Tickle makes a peppermint moonshine.
Moonshining is a serious (illegal) business. Obviously, they still do it in Appalachia and Discovery is capitalizing on moonshining activity. Whatever you think about this show, you can’t deny that you want to have a taste of that peppermint moonshine.
If you want to make some for the holidays you can substitute bootleg moonshine for Everclear or an 80-proof vodka.
Blend up some candy canes and add it to your alcohol over medium heat. Once it is well incorporated, put it in a mason jar with some fresh peppermint and let cool.
Enjoy responsibly and merry Christmas!
