Looking for the perfect recipe to pep up your outdoor party?
If you like your sips how you like your summer — long, sweet, full of fruit, and livened up with some delicious alcohol — this is the strawberry lemonade recipe for you!
This recipe is a go-to when I’m having company over in the backyard and I want to offer a sweet, refreshing moonshine to pair with the fresh air.
Strawberry puree, fresh lemon juice, and crisp moonshine combine in a drink perfectly made for sharing with friends at a bonfire party or BBQ.
If you have friends like me who are picky about the drinks at parties — vodka is too harsh, rum is too strong, water is too watery — just set up a big jar of this lovely concoction at the drinks table, and let the good times roll.
Easy to make and even easier to drink, this adult juice recipe is sure to please at your next get-together.
Drinkers who enjoy something easy always go for this berry twist on the popular Lemon Drop Moonshine recipe.
Friends of mine who don’t normally drink moonshine usually pour themselves another one!
The natural sugar from the berries and the tang from the lemon goes perfectly with the crisp, clear notes of the moonshine — no matter your tastes, there’s something for everyone in this refreshing lemonade recipe.
The ingredients are easy — fresh fruit, sugar, water, and moonshine. That’s it.
This explosion of flavour just takes some strawberries, fresh lemon juice, sugar, water, and everclear — even better if it’s fresh moonshine you made yourself! It takes only a few minutes to whip up a large batch, and thanks to the sugar and alcohol content, it keeps for absolutely ages.
Save a bit of summer in smooth, super drinkable moonshine form.
One great thing about this recipe — if you don’t finish it off at your party, it sits great for months. In fact, the flavour just gets better and better over time.
Screw on the jar lids tight, and it’ll still be good up to 2 years later. I like to split it up over several mason jars, so I can bring it out as needed when I have people over. Once you crack a jar open, keep it in the fridge for up to 6 months.
Throughout the winter, having a batch of berry lemon moonshine stocked away will help you make it to spring.
It’s tough to get your fruit in over the winter months — this recipe definitely has tons of fruit, so it’s got to have vitamins, antioxidants, and all that kind of thing in it, right? I’m waiting for the dietitians to get back to me on that one, but in the meantime, this recipe is ideal for some long-lasting fresh, juicy refreshment that’ll put some summer back in your soul.

A word to the wise — it’s sweet, delicious, and easy-drinking, but I use 190 proof moonshine! You’ll definitely be smiling wider and wider the more you sample it throughout the evening.
It’s a good idea to sip it slowly, because under all that delicious fruit there’s plenty of alcohol content that packs quite a punch.

2 pints strawberry
4 cups fresh lemon juice
12 cups water
4 cups sugar
5 cups everclear (I prefer 190 proof)
In a large pot, mix water and sugar on low heat until fully dissolved.
Let it cool down to room temperature.
Add strawberry puree, lemon juice, and everclear moonshine (3-5 cups to taste).
Stir your mix until fully blended.
Strain out the pulp.
Pour the mix into mason jars or a big jug, and keep it in the fridge for a few weeks. The more it sits, the more flavour you lock in!
When ready, the recipe gives you 6 quarts plus a bit. Sample to make sure the balance of moonshine & fruit is to your preferences!
You can skip the cooking by splitting the ingredients into a bunch of mason jars, and add the 5 cups of moonshine in. Let sit for at least 2 weeks. Shake daily.
For beautiful presentation, throw in some lemons and strawberries to swim around in the pitcher or jug. Cut up some slices on the side for guests to add to their mason jars as garnish.
Be careful, there’s plenty of alcohol content behind all that fruit! ‘Shine responsibly!
