Toast to the summer with this Blackberry Moonshine Cocktail recipe, with a sweet and spicy kick. This is what you get when you mix a little bit of the South with a little bit of beach vibes. Enjoy this along with my summer entertaining ideas and you’ll be all set for happy hour or theme parties.
This blackberry moonshine cocktail is a southerner-tropical fusion of flavors
As a Southern-bred gal I’m quite familiar with the iconic spirit, Moonshine. Practically everyone I know has a story about it. However, this is not your wayward uncle’s moonshine!
Today I’ve got the perfect summer cocktail for you, incorporating the Blockader’s Blackberry Moonshine. This drink gets its sweetness from pineapple juice plus a little kick of heat from a dash (or 2) of cayenne pepper. It’s a great balance of flavors with a slight fizz from club soda.
When to serve this blackberry moonshine drink
Serve this drink at a Southern style dinner party or include it in your tropical themed party ideas. The flavors make it so versatile. I would even say that the color and leaf garnish would make this a great drink for this peach botanical garden party.
The line of Moonshine from Sugarlands Distilling Company in Gatlinburg, Tennessee is smooth and infused with flavors like Root Beer, Old Fashioned Lemonade, Blueberry Muffin, and even Maple Bacon! There’s something for everyone, and I’m eager to try more varieties.
The moonshine comes in classic Mason jars with a twist-on lid with pouring spout for easy pouring. Offer some fruity mixers and let guests mix and match their own cocktails.
One thing I must emphasize about the Moonshine is how smoothly it goes down. It’s such a nice spirit on it’s own that you can easily serve it on the rocks all by itself for a refreshing happy hour sip.
And here’s another drink to try. It’s a salty dog strawberry moonshine cocktail.
