My favorite cocktail at the moment are Mojitos.  I just love the combination of tart lime juice and fresh mint.  There is nothing more refreshing.

A while back, I started making flavored moonshine.  I started with this Apple Pie Moonshine and followed it up with this amazing Peach Moonshine.  These cocktails are absolutely incredible!

Then I thought, why not try to make a Mojito Moonshine?!  I made a big batch and took it to a family party.

Just fill up a glass with ice, pour the ‘shine and add a slice of lime and a sprig of mint for garnish.  You can even sugar the rim if you feel so inclined.

This recipe is very easy to make.  Just be sure to factor in that you need to let it sit for a few weeks before you drink it.  It needs time to mellow out and become one with the cranberries.  Patience, friends.  It’s worth the wait.  I promise.

A word of warning…use caution when drinking this cocktail.  It is extremely potent.  It’s best to start with a small glass and sip it slowly.  It can hit you pretty hard.

      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!)
