Cranberry moonshine recipe

cranberry moonshine -

My cranberry craze continues!  Only this time, I’ve added some hooch.  Refrigerate overnight or let it sit for a few weeks to mellow.  Either way, it produces quite a kick!  Please enjoy responsibly – too much moonshine can make the toughest of men lose what sense God gave them.  Just like the time I found the old timer up the road, sitting in his garden without his pants.  But that’s a story for another day.
