It's no secret that Hubby and I enjoy a good margarita. So why not expand on that?! Margarita Moonshine is the perfect combination of margarita flavor, with a backwoods kick. If you're a fan of margaritas, then you should definitely to try this moonshine. You will love it!
'Tis the season... A quart of Margarita Moonshine would also make a great Christmas gift. If you start a batch now, you should have just enough time to let it mellow, before giving it to friends and loved ones.
- 2 cups Sugar
- 8 cups Water
- 2 cups Everclear
- 2 1/2 cups freshly squeezed Lemon Juice
- 1/2 cup freshly squeezed Lime Juice
- 1 1/2 cup Margarita Mix
- 1 Tbs Sea Salt
Pour half of the amount of water into a large saucepan. Heat up the water and mix in the sugar until completely dissolved. Remove the pan from the heat and allow it to cool completely.
Meanwhile, juice your lemons and limes. (We like to get a little pulp in there too, but make sure you remove any seeds.)
Stir the now cooled sugar water mixture, along with the rest of the water, Everclear, lemon, lime, margarita mix, and sea salt into a gallon jug.
You can now transfer the mixture into smaller containers if you like. (We prefer to use the quart sized glass jars.) Place the moonshine in the refrigerator and let it rest for at least a week before you drink it. (It will be EXTREMELY strong at first, but will mellow out as it sits.)
Shake well before serving.
Makes 1 Gallon
Pass it around... and Enjoy!
