It’s time to eliminate any negative connotations we may have about moonshine. It’s been revamped recently and is no longer condemned to the Prohibition era. It’s for everyone now. Midnight Moon Blueberry moonshine is the star of this cocktail. Make it during the summer when fresh blueberries, also making an appearance in the recipe, are at their freshest. We think it will be perfect for late evenings, rocking on the porch waiting for the next round of fresh breeze.
