How many of you are like me and love summer because of the fun fruity cocktails? Please tell me I am not the only one. Maybe it is because I am already dreaming about our fall trip to beautiful blue water and sandy beaches. I know that beach time will be here before we know it but man it seems so far away. Guess I need to make my own tropical goodness in my backyard…mom style. How you ask? Pulling out the kiddie pool, find my new sunglasses, make a refreshing summer cocktail and kick back with a good beach read. Sounds pretty awesome to me. Before making my go to drink I decided I would try something new for a change. I love getting creative with flavored alcohol and making delicious drinks. Recently, I was introduced to Sugarlands Distilling Company and their amazing Moonshine…yes Moonshine! And from now on there will be moonshine in my summer cocktails.
Sugarlands Distilling Company Moonshine – Perfect For Creating Summer Cocktails
Located just outside the Great Smoky Mountains in downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee lays a fully functioning distillery and entertainment venue called Sugarlands Distilling Company. Sugarlands offers an award-winning line of spirits including moonshine, cream liqueurs, rum and rye whiskey. Each of these spirits are packaged so vintage like in their own mason jars.
I was able to try two amazing moonshine spirits and both of them are so great. Pina Colada Moonshine and Blockader’s Blackberry Moonshine. While I love blackberry I was so excited to try the Pina Colada Moonshine. Nothing screams summer cocktails better than Pina Colada! YUM!! This Sugarlands Pina Colada Moonshine is a great combination of pineapple and coconut. There are so many different cocktails that you can make with this Pina Colada Moonshine such as a coconut Bellini, coconut margarita, pina colada. This spirit from Sugarlands is smooth and sweet and honestly could be enjoyed alone over ice or blended like this delicious Tropical Dream I made.
Looks absolutely refreshing right? SO GOOD!!
