Oops, too slow…looks like Mike beat you to the punch! We were perhaps a little city slicker at the Hillsville ABC store the other day, when we saw a whole section of moonshine. OK, the giggling and pointing was city slicker….me making Mike pose for this stellar shot? Smacks of tourist. But we’re not, we’re here to stay…muahahaha!!!
When we checked out (with gin for the blueberry shrub, vodka for the limencello, bourbon for Mike’s old fashioneds and apple pie moonshine), I’m pretty sure we came across as lushes. The fact that it was barely 11AM probably made it a bit worse. Our very friendly check out woman even made a crack about Mike’s loose-handed signature and his state of constitution at that point.
BUT! All of those alcohols were purchased for a good cause!! Recipe testing! Anyhow. Since this is a post about moonshine, I have a confession. I haven’t had that moonshine yet…
Did you catch that? I said “that” moonshine, which implies I might have tried a different one. And I did. Secret moonshine, and it was reeeeeeal good.
Have I mentioned I love it here? It’s beyond cool.
