Apple Pie Moonshine

So Apple Pie Moonshine – I keep seeing photos, and I keep thinking about making it and finally, I got some Everclear. Yeah, Everclear. I try to stay away from that stuff. Something to do with a Scorpions concert at Red Rocks when I was a kid. As a matter of fact, Everclear usually doesn’t…

Horchata, light & refreshing

I was introduced to Horchata (glad to meet you!) late in life, which is a bit of a shame as it is the perfect thing to drink with Mexican food. Well, other than Margaritas. Cool and light, barely sweet, this is my version.
