Here’s a lemon drop moonshine recipe that anyone can enjoy. And you don’t need a still to make one!
Sure, sounds like a shortcut, but the pleasant citrus tang atop the hefty spirit hit will make it up in full. The ingredients are easily source-able from any grocery store, preparing and mixing the moonshine takes about 30 minutes, so it’s definitely worth trying it out.
Just make sure to keep the mixture in the fridge for a couple of days at least. The longer it sits, the mellower is the taste.
- 2 Cups of Sugar (granulated)
- 6 Cups of Filtered Water
- 2 Cups of Moonshine (or Everclear if you're lazy!)

- Pre-heat water to about 86°F.
- Mix the sugar into warm water with a spoon until is completely dissolved.
