We’re going to make some root beer moonshine. I’ve got some Reed’s root beer candy. You can use any type of candy. Read the ingredients to make sure they don’t contain sucralose or aspartame because that’s not real sugar.

Make sure you don’t use sugar-free candy. I’ve got 13 pieces of candy and 80 proof moonshine. Blend it, shake it up, and let it sit for 24 hours. We’re going to come back and check it out tomorrow.

Alright, this is what the root beer moonshine looks like. I would probably like it a little darker, but that’s alright. It’s not bad, it looks pretty cool. It looks like root beer, maybe a little darker.

You could add a couple more candies to make it darker. Let’s try it out.

You can smell it and see what it’s all about. It smells like root beer, but it still smells like moonshine. It tastes like root beer, that’s good. You should try it, it’s really good. I tried to find root beer barrels but couldn’t find them, so I got that other candy. It works just as well.
