Haha crazy kids doing crazy stuff on the interwebz.
I have been tempted in the many times I stop by the local liquor store to buy a jar of that Midnight Moon pretty much because of the jar.

Apple pie moonshine is delicious. Also, fuck these idiots for living this long and never trying moonshine. It's just alcohol. It's not that weird. Go outside.
Apple anything is the best. And I concur. Fuck these sheltered Yankees for making it to be novel for its supposed backwardness. The fear they have of "moonshine" means their only exposure to it was from cartoons. Its as though they expected their eyes to spin like a slot machine, after taking a shot. These are the same people who likely go to hip southern food restaurants in NYC going, "OMG! WHAT'S A COLLARD GREEN?!? Chicken and waffles, together?"
They have yet to try moonshine. No such thing as legal moonshine. All they drank was mere unaged corn whiskey.
I'm not even a real southerner. I was born in the midwest from Yankee parents, but lived down south from the age of 2 till I joined the Coast Guard. I can't really claim anything else.
Apple anything is disgusting. I bought apple mead the other day - big mistake. It just tasted like apple juice! In conclusion, screw apples, they SUCK.
"Apple anything is the best."
Oh, I suppose you're okay with the switch from lime Skittles to green apple Skittles then? GO FUCK YOURSELF
EvilHomer, it's only mead if it's made with honey; what is this apple product masquerading as mead you speak of?
Craft mead from New Hampshire.
There's a lot of weird/ fruity-flavoured meads on the market; not as bizarre as vodka, but the mead nerds are trying. Swedish Fish Mead is only a matter of time now.
In fact, the same company sells what they claim is "blackcurrant mead", which has 80% blackcurrants to only 20% honey. Not sure how that still qualifies as mead, but there you go. What's more, the highest rated mead on RateBeer is, apparently, a "French Toast Mead", made with (amongst other things) maple syrup and bananas.
This stuff is tasty, but calling it moonshine is just fucking stupid. It'd be like having a video "people try Scotch for the first time" and having them try Jack Daniels.
A friend of a friend brews their own mead, I'm not sure what they make it out of, but it is great! Same thing goes for moonshine, except for the tasting great obviously. If I'm drinking shots I kind of prefer them to taste like burning hell!
2 stars for moonshine in general and 1 for Buzzfeed in particular. Moonshine is definitely drinkable but the resultant hangover from it is as close to a living death as I have ever gotten near to. For those of you on the Apple deliciousness party train definitely try to get your hands on some Calvados, i.e. French Apple Brandy! Calvados: For a More Refined Hangover.
i've had actual moonshine more than once (actual templeton rye, not the manufactured stuff), and while it would melt plastic it was also the smoothest whiskey i've ever tasted
if the distiller gives a shit it can be really, really good

Oh, what's that? Clickhole is not relevant anymore? FUCK YOU.
Needs a "not Clickhole" tag.
Probably should have been put in the "Advertisements" category as well.

Holy fuck these people are annoying, it's moonshine, drink it and shut up bitch!
Buzzfeed is slowly becoming more annoying than TMZ and Pitchfork combined. I still remember when it was almost funny. As a hipster, my first moonshine experience was when I was 15 years old, provided to me by some college kids who lived across the street. Or at least they said it was moonshine. I think that was my first acid trip too.
They can't shut up and drink it. The audience might assume that these people are working class and Southern, unless they tell us - through expository dialogue - that this is, in fact, not so. Unlike Southerners, who wear straw hats and overalls, urbane civilized people do not wear a cultural uniform that easily marks them out as One Of Us; they just look "normal", and hence are sometimes difficult to spot.
This can be a serious problem. We can't have the drinkers misidentified, because watching poors drink moonshine would be no fun at all! It'd be no different than watching a zoo animal do the same boring old bullshit animals always do; the humor in this video is derived from seeing someone do socially unexpected things, such as an animal wearing clothes and doing human stuff, or a human on all fours, acting like an animal. Animals acting like animals, humans acting like humans, not funny.
Like all classic blackface comedy, the ironic distinction between the actor and their current role must always be maintained, or else the joke falls apart.
My first moonshine experience was when I was 17 years old. It was the summer of 1997 and an acquaintance of mine, a lovable redneck named Rocky, brought us some moonshine that his grandpappy made up in Georgia. It was sealed in a labelless soup can. That should have been a red flag. So out came the bottle opener to punch two holes in the can and wouldn't ya know, it didn't smell like death. We mixed it in some cherry kool-aid and took some swigs. Not too bad. Smooth and drinkable. I took it slow. I didn't have anything to prove. Some of the others, slightly younger kids, were pounding down solo cups of the stuff. Suddenly they'd stop, usually mid-sip, then projectile vomit a good 10 feet. Moonshine has a delayed reaction, like good tequila. And the puking wouldn't stop for hours. To this day I won't drink red kool-aid, or anything that resembles it, because it reminds me of pink chunks on the pool deck.

I'm kind of ashamed to admit I have a (nearly empty) jar of those cherries in my fridge. Delicious.
Those actually look great. I wonder if you can do it with olives too. Once in a while I like to poke a hole in a watermelon and fuc-- uh.. pour vodka in it. Then I fuck the watermelon.
Does that work? Wouldn't the alcohol burn?
Pro-tip: you can do it with olives (or at least, you can do it with gin or voldka and olives).
I don't know. Olives seem like they'd be too small.

Cena Mark hit the nail on the head earlier in the comments- it's not moonshine if it's legal, and all those products are just novelty things.
I've had the store-bought unaged corn whiskey, and it was terrible. The real stuff, on the other hand, was actually quite good. Let's not forget that the makers of real moonshine have pride in their product, hence why moonshine didn't disappear entirely once prohibition was repealed.
|Doomstein - 2015-04-13 |
I buy moonshine from a certain outlaw biker gang here in Central Florida. (good life choices) I don't know if it's because I'm used to drinking kerosene-like spirits, but it goes down really smooth, but then all of a sudden it'll fucking turn on you like a saucy Meth-whore looking to score her next glassy fix. You'll be mid-sip and your gag reflexes will suddenly go "teehehehee....noooope" and that's that. The rest of the night is the fight to keep it down.

We lived for years in Monroeville, Alabama. Monroeville is a dry county, no alcohol is sold within county lines and you're only allowed to bring in a certain amount. Illicit home brewing was popular.
I remembered wondering as a kid why so many people had jars of water shoved all the way back on the bottom shelf of their fridge.
