Peppermint Patty moonshine recipe is a sweet and indulgent dessert drink that is guaranteed to be a hit at any holiday party!
It is pretty much a given that once word comes out that you are a moonshiner, you are likely to start having friends and family lined up at your door chomping at the bit to give it a try.
While some can handle a shot of white lightning, most are far too big of wimps to handle anything that strong. For those people, we have moonshine cocktails. When it comes to the holiday season, we like to indulge our sweet tooth.
Sip With Caution
Of course with all the sweetness of this cocktail there is still a kick of moonshine. Make sure anyone indulging knows to take it slow. While you may not be able to taste the moonshine, you will certainly feel it!
Overindulging in moonshine is unfortunately very easy to do. No matter how good this cocktail tastes, it is meant to be sipped. It is also important that everyone knows this drink is, in fact, a cocktail, as kids could easily mistake it for a delicious dessert.
Where Can I Get Moonshine?
Moonshiners know that the best way to get their hands on some good, strong alcohol is by distilling it themselves at home. Nowadays, this can be accomplished with a few basic kitchen supplies and ingredients found in any grocery store.
Learn How to Make Moonshine
While the ingredients and supplies are often easy to come by, learning how to moonshine is not something that can be done without proper instruction.
The reason for this is simple, making moonshine without proper knowledge and instruction is simply not safe. You could be putting something potentially dangerous in your body or risking your own safety without the proper safeguards in place.
That is why at How to Moonshine we believe that it is important to not only sell quality craft stills but also help our customers through every step of their moonshining journey. We offer in-depth manuals, how-to guides and step-by-step recipes. We even have a free 'How to Moonshine' ebook!
The Right Still for the Job
We also offer a variety of moonshine stills to suit every level and type of moonshiner. Some shiners simply want to make sugar shine and flavor it to replace the many expensive liquers in their bar.
If this is you, the Mist 1 Gallon Air Still is your perfect match. The Mist is about the size of your kitchen kettle and just as easy to use. It features a plug and play design which means you can get moonshine at the press of a button!
For those who want to perfect the perfect white lightning, we have the Copperhead All-in-One Moonshine Still Kit. The Copperhead features a stainless steel body and copper coils. This combination makes the still both easy to clean and maintain as well as able to neutralize any sulphur in your mash.
The Copperhead is also able to do double duty as both a still and a fermentor. This means less equipment for you to buy and store!
The Perfect Addition to Any Holiday Cocktail
No matter what still you choose, the moonshine you make will be the perfect addition to any holiday cocktail.
