Moonshine was a term used in describing distilled spirits that had high proof.  In the past, moonshine was considered illegal which is why the distillation process of moonshine was done at night to avoid discovery. Even if it is considered as illegal liquor, moonshine was an important source of income for Appalachian residents.  These days, moonshine is no longer illegal except if it is distributed without payment of excise tax.  Nevertheless, there are now several brands of moonshine that are legally sold.

A very popular cocktail drink is the Moscow mule.  Using moonshine though in the making of the drink takes the cocktail drink to a new level.  Through the use of the Blumer’s Moonshine, you can enjoy the reinvented Moscow mule throughout the evening.  check http://minhasdistillery.com/how-to-make-a-moscow-mule/ for more recipes.
