This summer is really starting to get tasty! All of these drinks and not enough time in a day. Every time I think about this drink I start singing “Get your shine on….” and then annoy the crap out of anyone around me. I can’t help it. It’s such a catchy tune!
Obviously, this cocktail contains cherry moonshine, Ole Smoky Tennessee Moonshine to be exact. They sent me a few sample mason jars and while all of them were delicious the cherry was hands down my favorite. I think my favorite part about the cherry moonshine was the fact that it was a combination of moonshine and moonshine soaked cherries. It’s a drink and a snack in the same jar. Who’s with me?
The great thing about this cherry moonshine summer cocktail is that it packs a sweet punch with a fizzy finish. I love it soooooo much! I make my own seltzer water using my SodaStream but you can easily just pick up a bottle at your local supermarket. Just make sure to get plain flavored so you don’t hide all that delicious cherry moonshine flavor.
Oh, and can we talk about the color of this cocktail? It’s like fruit juice for adults. And if you’re out of lemons, limes work perfectly in this cocktail!
