Cranberry Moonshine 

Prep Time: 10 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes



  • 2 cups fresh cranberries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 750 ml bottle moonshine
  • To Make 1 Drink
  • 3 oz cranberry moonshine
  • 3 oz ginger ale


In a small saucepan combine the cranberries, sugar, and water and heat until sugar dissolves, about 5 minutes. Let cool about 20 minutes.

To a jar add the cranberry syrup and the moonshine, stirring to combine. Cover and let the moonshine infuse for three days at room temperature. Strain through a fine-mesh strainer, discarding the cranberries. Transfer the moonshine to a clean jar and keep in the fridge for up to 2 months.

To Make 1 Drink

In a glass filled with ice combine the moonshine with ginger ale. Garnish with a lime if desired.


If the moonshine doesn't fit in one jar, divide the mixture evenly between several jars.

If fresh cranberries are not available, use frozen cranberries.
