This Mojito Moonshine recipe is a kicked up version of one of my favorite cocktails.
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.
This stuff was a huge hit! It’s got all of the flavor of traditional Mojitos but with a good, solid moonshine kick!
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 have quite the collection of flavored moonshine recipes. You can get them all in my eBook, How to Make Flavored Moonshine. You’ll get 16 moonshine recipes with step-by-step instructions and photos and 34 cocktail recipes you can make with the flavored moonshines. You can find out more about my ebook here.
