Moonshine is amazing. We get some moonshine that's in a mason jar every year for our rugby banquet, and I steal it while blacked out every year. Great way to forget that I ever became a CS major.

I'm pretty sure that I'd drink all the moonshine, throw it up, and never eat Moonpies again.

50-100 proof is NOT moonshine.

It's not moonshine. It's nasty unaged whiskey in a jar.

Not far away, Steve & Paul's family made some of America's finest sour mash whiskey based on recipes dating back to the 1700s.

In other words, they buy it from MGP in Lawrenceburg, Indiana, just like most other fake craft whiskey. And then pour some artificial flavoring in like Absolut. Combining the best of two hallowed liquor traditions in one convenient place!

I've had it. It tastes absolutely godawful, and that's as somebody who somewhat-likes Moon Pies. (Although British-style Wagon Wheels are better.)

And I agree, it's also weak and watery, and shouldn't be called moonshine.

I'm pretty sure that somewhere I have an unopened bottle of Goo Goo Cluster liqueur. It's from the late 80s -- someone bought it in the French Quarter and then left it at my house. I'm short on shelf space so it's not out, which is a shame because it's got pretty good WTF value for visitors.

I would consider moonshine to be defined by "is it legal?", IE if you have to distill it by moonlight in the woods. In which case, this is not moonshine. However, I see no reason why an illegal still owner cannot dilute his or her product and still consider it moonshine.

Sorry. Did Russian standard with custard go too far?

I had a thimble shot once.  I didn't know the guy who gave it to me so I asked him to take a shot first thinking I didn't want to go blind.  That little bit got me a buzz.

Moonshine is distilled alcohol (usually corn mash) made in pot stills,  that taxes weren't paid on.

The crap they're selling as "Moonshine" is bulk distilled neutral spirits that they couldn't get away with selling as bottom shelf vodka, but they put it in a mason jar and slap a home-made looking label on it and they can sell it for $35-$55 for a 750ml. Bonus, they add cheap artificial flavors to hide the low quality.

Also, I heard this morning mention of a stadium which is selling alcohol-infused cupcakes, but I can't remember where it was or even whether it was MLB or NFL. For that matter, I'm not even sure what "alcohol-infused cupcakes" involves -- is that just something like my grandmother's rum-soaked fruitcake?

Another question suddenly comes to mind: can you bake with powdered alcohol? This is important.

50 proof? fark off.

Back in high school (I live in nc) we drank legit moonshine a buddy's uncle made. It actually wasn't terrible tasting. Different kind of drunk, though, and it wasn't long getting there.

It's moonshine because mason jars!

I'm down here in NC for a while, and I've seen that here.

We're yet to have it in Maine, but I'm sure we'll be seeing it soon.

I know a guy who makes his own. Once you've smelled the heads, you know to never drink them. It's almost an instinctive "hell no".

We're not seeing that message nor had any other reports of it. Might want to check your security settings.

Salmiakki koskenkorva is an taste. I know I was skeptical. And yet most of my friends who try it like it. Sweet, salty, astringent, boozy.

Better than the promised narcoleptic 9 year old on Adderall web page that subby promised, I was totally underwhelmed.

I've been there for their tour, and they give several free samples.  They come in a variety of fruit flavors.  I remember there was one of them that I branded "very dangerous" because it did not have the bite that most moonshine products do, but all the proof and after effect.  Went down very smoothly.... a veritable "liquid coma" waiting to happen...

Only if you happen to think S'mores and a Moon Pie are the same thing -- which they're not, even slightly.

Not even close... Moon Pies are fossilized marshmallows epoxied in between two slightly sweetened, round pieces of cardboard.  S'mores are teh great... that's the graham cracker, chocolate and marshmallow treat heated over an open campfire

Close, but not quite. S'mores don't usually contain chocolate. They contain Hershey's, which is a similar color, but bears almost no relation to actual chocolate.

So that's the raham cracker, brown sugary wax and marshmallow treat that's more often heated in a microwave or a garden barbecue pit, but occasionally somewhere near a campfire.
