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!
