      I put in Fridge for the first 3 days to get everything married together, but once I jar it up, I put mine in the basement where its cool (50’s) and dark. During the winter when I make it I throw it right out on my deck in the snow in the post with lids on. I’ve actually left it out there for almost 2 weeks before I jarred it up. Even under freezing temperatures it never froze. I think when I do it that way it tastes so much better, not sure why.

  1. I love these Moonshine recipes, but I don’t know how to serve them? I would like to make some up for Christmas gifts and put tags on jars telling how to serve. Example: Is Pumpkin served warm? The cranberry warm? Is the Mojito served over ice straight or mixed with soda, etc? Thank you for your reply.

    • I usually enjoy them straight out of the jar but you can easily mix them to make other cocktails. You can serve them warm, just remember that some of the alcohol may evaporate out.

        I usually do straight out of the jar as well. When I bring jars to a party or gathering I will generally bring small plastic shot glasses and just pass them out with the jars. They never last long

  2. This sounds so good and I’d love to make it but I’m confused about one of the ingredients. Is “2 oz containers of limeade 59” correct? Do you mean 2 ozs from a limeade container?

    The recipe is not very clear on the limeade portion. Can you give me that measurement please? (Just finished making a 24-quart batch of strawberry lemonade shine – bring on summer!)
