Ringing In The New Year With Two Cool Cocktails

By: The Food Hunter

Wondering what drinks to serve your guests this New Years Eve? I've put together two cocktails using Ole Smoky Moonshine. Tennessee moonshine at its finest, Ole Smoky is 80% corn and 20% a secret ingredient that gives it a distinct character and a bold flavor. If you like whiskey, you will love Ole Smoky Moonshine.

I was given three varieties to sample: White Lightening, Peach and Cherry. All three taste equally good on their own or blended in cocktails; like the ones below. But don't take my word for it, mix one up for yourself and let me know what you think.

Peachy Old Fashioned
2 oz bourbon whiskey
2 dashes Angostura® bitters
1 splash water
1 tsp sugar
1 Ole Smoky cherry
splash of Ole Smoky Cherry juice
1/2 oz Ole Smoky Peach Moonshine

Mix sugar and bitters together in a rocks glass. Add in peach moonshine, bourbon and water. Stir to mix. Drop in a cherry and a splash of cherry moonshine juice. Fill with ice and stir.

White Lightening Espresso Martini
2 oz cold espresso
2 oz Ole Smoky White Lightening Moonshine
1 oz Kahlua® coffee liqueur
1/2 oz Frangelico liqueur

Pour ingredients into a shaker filled with ice, shake vigorously, and strain into chilled martini glass. It should be somewhat frothy.

Happy New Year!
