Moonshine, a once forbidden southern spirit has recently made it's way into the mainstream with several brands launching their own high proof versions. As a neutral grain spirit, it does not have much flavor on its own which is why it makes the perfect blank canvas for some fun fresh infusions. We chose to pair tart fresh blueberries with basil to make this infusion stand out from the crowd. Try it served over ice with club soda, or mixed with some homemade lemonade.

  • 1/2 Pint Blueberries
  • 5 Large Basil Leaves
  • Moonshine Whiskey


  • Measuring cup
  • Knife
  • Muddler

How to Mix

  1. Place the blueberries and basil leaves into the bottom of a 1.5 Pint Mason Jar and muddle gently.
  2. Fill the rest of the jar with an unflavored moonshine of your choice (we used Firefly Moonshine) and seal with lid.
  3. Give the mixture a good shake to distribute ingredients, and let sit in a cool dark place for up to 5 days, shaking occasionally.
  4. After 5 days, strain ingredients out through a fine mesh strainer, and place your infused moonshine into a sealed jar.
  5. Infusion will keep for several weeks refrigerated.
