Blueberry Brandy Recipe

Blueberry Brandy Recipe - HowtoMoonshine


Blueberry season may be over, but with this mouthwatering moonshine recipe, the taste of summer can last forever. 


Blueberry Brandy Moonshine blends the juicy flavours of blueberries and cinnamon with a perfect balance of alcohol to get that refreshing and warm summertime taste!




Have you ever had an exceptionally delicious blueberry pie, blueberry cheesecake, blueberry muffin, or really blueberry anything and wished you could consume it in a liquid, intoxicating form? Well, boy, do I have a recipe for you!


I’ve made many different blueberry recipes in my time, but I’ve never heard of Blueberry Moonshine until someone mentioned the concoction earlier this summer. Since I adore anything blueberry flavoured, and blueberry liqueur happens to be an all time favourite, I knew I had to try to repeat this recipe immediately. 


This homemade blueberry brandy is simple to make. The hardest part is waiting while it cools!


While you can use both fresh or frozen blueberries to successfully make homemade blueberry brandy, I prefer to use fresh blueberries as much as possible. I also use a can of blueberry pie filling to give the moonshine that sweet and sugary finish. 


Tart and refreshing, this ain’t your mama’s average moonshine. 



Gone is the painful burn you’d expect in that old-timey, prohibition-level moonshine. This homemade blueberry brandy is an Everclear-Vodka concoction that will smack you right in your moonshine-loving face, but it goes down easy with a full blueberry sugar flavour for the tongue to savour.

Blueberry Muffin Moonshine is supposed to be a slow sip drink and not a gulp-it-down-as-quick-as-you-can drink like other homemade moonshine recipes tend to be. This drink is smooth yet strong and can be stored in jugs or mason jars, just like the real deal.

In addition to the delicious taste, this recipe will make your whole house smell like blueberry cinnamon heaven!

Recipe Notes

1. Store in the fridge! The moonshine is ready to drink immediately but the taste will improve significantly if you let it sit and mellow in mason jars for two weeks

2. Use a cheesecloth! I prefer to strain out the blueberries and leave just the liquid

3. If blueberries are not in season, you can use canned or frozen blueberries


 Tools to Make

I guarantee you already have the necessary tools to make this moonshine!

  1. A stovetop pot for boiling
  2. A strainer, like a cheesecloth, for getting the blueberries and cinnamon sticks out
  3. Mason jars or jugs

If you want to make your own alcohol, get a Moonshine Still Kit.

Investing in a quality moonshine still kit is one of the best decisions you will ever make if you are planning on making moonshine alcohol on your own.


Home DIY moonshine kits just don’t cut it because these devices never give you as much control over various aspects such as temperature, pressure level and time.  Your production methods can have a huge impact on the taste of your moonshine.

With a quality moonshine kit you can fine tune your technique until you can produce the perfect blend of Blueberry Brandy Moonshine every single time. These kits are also ideal for making a wide range of other types of alcoholic beverages and recipes as well.

If you are looking for a great moonshine start kit, we recommend our 5 Gallon Stovetop Kit.

This Blueberry Brandy Moonshine is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser at your next dinner party, and also makes a great gift!

Unlike several homemade moonshine recipes that you can find online, this Blueberry Brandy Moonshine is strong and leaves a harsh feeling in your mouth and throat. The alcohol is not covered by the blueberries but rather accented by the sweet and tart fruit. This drink is most enjoyable when taking light, slow sips.
