Seasonal Shine – Perfect Winter Drinks
December is here, and the weather is finally getting that winter feel. The leaves are all but fallen, and the nighttime temperatures have brought us the first frosts of the season. Christmas and New Years are right around the corner, and it’ll be winter before we know it. When the weather changes up its flavoring, so should you! The winter weather is too cold for summer beverages like a daiquiri or a pina colada. With the holidays upon us, you don’t want to serve your friends and family the same ordinary beverages that everyone else provides. So switch up your drink menu and try something more festive this year. Our diverse and seasonally festive moonshine and whiskey collection can provide you with the perfect ingredients to make your holiday party perfect.
Our Dumplin Creek Moonshine can be used to make an infinite number of delicious drinks. However you choose to mix and serve, we’ve got the flavor for you. Keep reading to see some of our suggestions for the perfect Dumplin Creek Moonshine mixed drink.
Is there ever a wrong time for a margarita? This delicious drink is made with our special Tennessee Frost moonshine. Unlike the frosty weather outside, this moonshine will bring the right kind of frost into your home this season. Our 100 proof traditional moonshine is made from corn ground at the old mill in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee. The frosty margarita is one of our favorites, and the recipe is quite easy!
- 3 oz. Tennessee Frost Moonshine
- 2 oz. Lime Juice
- 1 oz. Simple Syrup (superfine sugar mixed in water)
- 1/2 tsp. Orange Liqueur

We know this is a fall drink, but hey, it’s still fall for a few more weeks! This suggestion to you is more of a morning drink. However, it could also be the perfect pick-me-up after a big holiday feast! Stir Autumn Maple Moonshine and Irish Cream into your choice of black coffee. Top with whipped cream and bacon bits. Optional: Add a dash of maple syrup.
