Key Lime Moonshine 

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time:



  • 2 cups Everclear or plain moonshine (Grab something close to 190 or 195 proof)
  • 1/4 cup key lime juice
  • 5 key limes, quartered
  • 2 cups purified water
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar


Pour the everclear, key lime juice, and the key limes into a quart mason jar and shake to combine. Let sit for 3 weeks, shaking the jar every other day.

In a saucepan add water and sugar and heat until sugar dissolves. Let cool to room temperature.

Strain the key limes from the alcohol and return the alcohol to the jar. Add the simple syrup mixture and seal the jar, letting the jar sit for at least 2 weeks.

Serve with club soda and ice.


If you want your alcohol to be stronger, us less simple syrup.

Serve this moonshine with a bit of soda water and ice.

Perfect Pairing
