Servings: 10
  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 750ml bottle of moonshine
  • 3 oz cranberry moonshine
  • 3 oz ginger ale
  1. In a small saucepan combine the cranberries, sugar, and water and heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Let cool about 20 minutes.

    To a jar add the cranberry syrup and the moonshine, stirring to combine. Cover and let the moonshine infuse for three days at room temperature. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding the cranberries. Transfer the moonshine to a clean jar and keep in the fridge for up to 2 months.

  2. In a glass filled with ice combine the moonshine with ginger ale. Garnish with a lime if desired.

Recipe Notes

If the moonshine doesn't fit in one jar, divide the mixture evenly between several jars. If fresh cranberries are not available, use frozen cranberries.
