HoneyDew, Cantaloupe, and Muskmelon
Are you a fan of honeydew, cantaloupe, or muskmelon? We are. Nothing is better than a ripe, late-summer melon. They're sweet, refreshing and delicious. Are you also a fan of moonshine? Well if you like melons and you like moonshine, then chances are that you'll absolutely love this super simple melon-shine recipe. Though, remember, making and even having moonshine is illegal. If you're going to make this on your own, it'd be wise to use some store bought shine, everclear, or perhaps even vodka.
Make Some Melon "Moonshine"
Slice up one of your favorite melons (we gave you a few options above). Remove the rind and ditch the seeds. Add the flesh of the fruit to a quart jar of regular ol' corn whiskey (vodka if you must). OK, this next step is important. DON'T drink it! Not yet, at least. You need to leave it sit for a week before cracking it open. This requires some patience, but you'll get better results if you let it it sit for a week as opposed to a day. Your reward? If you manage to make it through the entire week without drinking you'll end up with one of the best tasting jars of shine you've ever laid your hands on.
Crack open a jar of this stuff and pass it around a circle. By the end of the night you'll have more new friends than you can count. Really, melon shine is one of our favorite types of flavored alcohol and we know you're going to like it. Enjoy!
