These delicious watermelon moonshine cocktails are perfect for a hot summer day!
National Watermelon Month is the perfect time to enjoy some refreshing watermelon drinks! We’ve gathered some delicious watermelon moonshine cocktails to help you stay cool for the hot days of summer.
At 92% water, watermelons live up to their name – making them a great part of both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages. Midnight Moon’s Watermelon Moonshine and watermelon cocktails in-a-can kick both summer fun and thirst-quenching refreshment up a notch.
Many of our moonshine recipes pair well with fresh watermelon. Midnight Moon 100 Proof, Lightning Lemonade, and Blueberry moonshines taste great in watermelon cocktails.
Midnight Moon Watermelon Moonshine – It doesn’t get more summer than this.
Midnight Moon Watermelon is a refreshing blend of our legendary moonshine recipe and watermelon, delivering a 70-proof spirit that tastes like summer.
Like all of our moonshines, this distilled spirit is made from 100% American corn and handcrafted in small batches.
However, we use a state-of-the-art distillation process to make a superior quality spirit that’s very clean and ultra-smooth. This means that our moonshine recipe does not have the harsh, heavy corn taste people often associate with this category.
It’s then blended with ultra-clean water that has been through a seven-step filtration process, and the result is a very smooth spirit with a subtle sweetness from the corn.
Midnight Moon Watermelon Moonshine comes in a 750ml mason jar and a 50ml mini mason jar. When attending a party, always BYOM: Bring Your Own Moon. Bringing a mason jar of Midnight Moon Watermelon to any event will make you a favorite party guest. We recommend keeping mini mason jars of watermelon moonshine in the freezer to help beat the heat.
