Warm this Winter with the Perfect Holiday Cocktail

Though moonshine is meant to be drunk straight, here’s a cocktail recipe to keep you warm this winter.

Moonshiners Mark and Digger are known throughout Tennessee and southern Appalachia for producing some of the best moonshine in the region. Whether recreating Popcorn Sutton’s legendary recipes, mixing their own mash, or brewing a batch of matrimonial moonshine, the duo have established themselves as local legends, carrying on the traditions of their predecessors.

Though they prefer their ‘shine straight, here’s one of their favorite holiday cocktail recipes — the Peppermint Gimlet.
