Tennessee moonshine is an American tradition and one our southern family loves. There’s nothing better than sitting on the porch and sippin’ some shine. My Husband comes from a long line of moonshine connoisseurs and he’s carrying on the passion. This Blackberry Sage Hard Lemonade recipe is a savory and sweet summer cocktail.
The star ingredient is Sugarlands Moonshine. The Sugarlands Distilling Company is located in the breathtaking smokey mountains and near downtown Gatlinburg, Tennessee. They have an award-winning line of spirits including moonshine, cream liqueurs, rum and rye whiskey. Thousands of guests visit each month to sip the spirits and tour the distillery.
Sugarlands spirits are available in retail stores in 24 states across the country and you can purchase online anytime at buysugarlands.com. Look for special seasonal flavors throughout the year.
I’ve been enjoying several of their flavors this summer: Blockader’s Blackberry Moonshine and Pina Colada Moonshine. The Blackberry ‘shine has a delicious blend of berry, floral fragrances of honeysuckle and blended with lavender. It’s sweet, but has a smooth finish. It makes for a great cocktail base.
Of course – they are packaged in the quintessential southern major jar.
You can bring the spirit of Gatlinburg to your porch while you enjoy this Blackberry Sage Hard Lemonade! Moonshine is a great option for mixing because it tastes great on it’s own as well. My recipe is inspired by favorite herb and berry flavor combinations that you can find in steakhouses. They balance each other perfectly.
