3 Recipes to Make the Perfect Moonshine Cocktail

Today is World Moonshine Day (yes, it’s a thing), so we decided to hit up with Pacific Moonshine to share a couple of cocktail recipes that’ll help you enjoy the most notorious of spirits in style.

Born and bred during the lockdown in Byron Bay, Pacific Moonshine is the lovechild spirit of Brookie’s Gin and Stone & Wood. Bursting with flavours of tropical fruits such as fresh pineapple, lychee, passionfruit and mango, along with hints of malt on the nose. The taste is citrusy and dry with a medium to long finish on the tongue. This makes it a perfect pair for a sweeter soda and, if you’re feeling fruity, a splash of juice.
