    Don’t call it pineapple. Call it orange. Very similar to a dreamcicle one I’ve made minus the cream.

  2. When I made Apple Pie I used a one Mason jar of shine and one 750ml of vodka. Do you think the same could be done for this recipe but use rum instead of vodka? I don’t see why not. I’d have to double the other ingredients as well.

    • Apple Pie Moonshine is best made with real Moonshine, but Everclear is about as close as you can legally buy. In TN, you can buy Moonshine in a Liquor store, but it is not as strong. Living in the area where Popcorn Sutton made his Shine meant a lot for me. May he rest in peace.

  3. The recipe states to add shredded coconut but the amount isn’t listed in the ingredients. How much do you add? Sounds devine!

    Reply
  4. So question… your recipe calls for 4oz of cream of coconut but then in the directions it shows coconut water and shredded coconut. Can you clear up that little bit of confusion please? Everclear is pricey so I want to make sure I get this right the first time! 🙂 THANK YOU!!!!!

    Reply
  5. Any one know how much shredded coconut goes in this? Also, in the ingredients list it has cream of coconut, and in the instructions it has coconut water, are they interchangeable, is that a simple mistake, or are both supposed to go into this? I just want to make it the right way. Thank you.

    Reply
    • The recipe has been updated. The first I made it, I used the shredded coconut but didn’t like it so I removed it from the recipe. And, it’s cream of coconut, not coconut water. The recipe is now correct.

    These are some of my favorite flavors combined! I’m new to moonshine… do you just drink it straight then or do you mix it with something before you drink it?

    Reply
    • I can answer that, real Moonshine is extremely strong, but can be sipped straight if you have something to chase it with. Everclear is also strong. Another option in this recipe would be to use Bacardi 151 Rum.
