If you liked Slush Berries, you’ll love Bish Berries.
5 small peaches (or 3 large)
1 can pineapple chunks
1 bunch red grapes
1 bottle moscato
Dice the peaches. Drain the pineapple. Pick the grapes. Layer into containers. Fill with moscato. Seal and let marry for a few days.
Serve a few tablespoons into some sprite, tonic water, a peach daiquiri, or even into a chardonnay.
You can also throw a few pieces of fruit and moscato into an ice cube tray to freeze. Add them to your drinks just like the marinated concoction.
If you party at my house, “shots” is the word.
I normally start everybody with something sweet, but strong, like Tequila Rose.
The next round will be a semi-strong concoction I’ve made up on the fly, like Amaretto, OJ, and Crown Royal.
The third round will be an easy, but tasty, shot, like coconut rum and pineapple juice. I normally shake the mixed shots with ice (always taste test and adjust them) and strain into the shot glasses.
Then I’ll serve something straight, like Jack Daniels. Mostly just the men take these shots, but you’ll get a rowdy girl in there sometimes.
Depending on how many people are present, I’ll have anywhere between 6 to 18 shot glasses on my tray. You can get 6 packs of 2 oz. shot glasses from Wal-Mart for a few bucks. Stock up on those, a shaker, strainer, ice, and some provisions before your next party and you’ll be all set.
If you’re having trouble coming up with shot variations, this chart will help.
And now for the recipe you’ve been waiting for….
Apple Pie Moonshine
20 cinnamon sticks
1 gal. apple juice
4 ½ L. apple cider (unsweetened)
4 c. brown sugar
1 sm. bottle vanilla extract
1 T. nutmeg
1 ½ L. Everclear (190 proof)
12 Mason jars
Wrap about 8 cinnamon sticks in a piece of cheese cloth and tie the ends together to make a packet. In a large pot, mix packet and all other ingredients (except the Everclear) and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes. Let the mixture cool to room temperature. Once completely cooled, stir in the Everclear. Add one cinnamon stick to each Mason jar. Pour moonshine into mason jars and hand tighten the lids. Let the jars sit in a cool place for about two weeks for best results. The shelf life is one year. Serve cold.
This recipe was given to me by a friend/coworker we call “Cuz”. Thanks, Cuz!!
Remember those slush berries you made a while back? Now I’m going to tell you the best way to devour them. All you need is your slush berries and one of those adult capri suns in pina colada flavor.
Cut off the top of the capri sun. Add a few spoonfuls of slush berries. Massage the capri sun enough to mix your berries with your colada. Now stick a straw in it and suck it like it’s hard!
You like that, huh? I knew you would, you dirty slush.
These berries are not for slushy kids drinks. These berries are for you slutty lushes out there, A. K. A. Slushes. You know who you are! Also, a jar of these makes a great thank you gift for any other Slush you know. You can add a couple tablespoons of this stuff to champaigne, reisling, sprite, pina coladas, etc.
1 lg pack of strawberries, quartered
1 pack blueberries
1 pack raspberries
1 pack blackberries
1 bottle red wine
2 mason jars
Clean your berries.
Layer into mason jars.
Top off with red wine and store up to 4 weeks. I used a Chilean Merlot that we bottled in May of 2012. It’s rich and strong, just like I like my men. 😉
After filling both mason jars, there is exactly one glass of wine left in the bottle. Cheers!!
