What do you do when you only have moonshine soaked cranberries, off brand powdered no-calorie lemonade, and nary a clean glass glass in the house? Make Redneck Auntie Cape Codder AKA "The Don't Judge Me"
Junior's Midnight Moon moonshine is a family business based on Junior Johnson's original North Carolina moonshine recipe from the mid-1800's. The jar and label caught my eye at the grocery store the other day and demanded I bring it home to play. Okay, I'm as friendly as it is, and it's happy in my home and tummy.
Just for the few people who may not realize it....while it is a delicious cocktail, my calling it "Redneck Auntie" is a joke so if you feel the need to take it seriously and be offended, I won't necessarily feel the need to publish your comment.
My 17-year-old niece may give me hell on Facebook for using "HER" princess glass, but my older niece, who's only months away from drinking legally is going to LOVE this. I may even have to surrender the glass to her for her birthday (if Sydney will allow it).
Off to have another sippy cup of Redneck Auntie.
Redneck Auntie's Cape Codder AKA The Don't Judge Me
- 1 1/2 oz Junior's Moonshine with Cranberries (real cranberries--that's a fruit serving!)
- Splash of Lemon Lime soda
- Lemonade to fill the glass (or sippy cup)
- Optional: sugar to taste
Mix all ingredients together and enjoy. Depending on how tart you like it, you may want to add some sugar.
