Crock Pot Cherry Pie Moonshine

Easy to make and tastes amazing. Great as a holiday drink or to be poured over vanilla ice cream.


  • 2 cans cherries, 15 oz each, ideally with heavy syrup

  • 1 32 oz container of cherry juice
  • 2 cups Bandits Traditional Moonshine (or substitute with Bandits Northern Lights Vodka)


  1. Combine cherries, sugar and cherry juice in the crock pot, stir until combined
  2. Cook on low for 1-2 hours until sugar dissolves
  3. Allow to cool, once cool pour in Bandits Traditional Moonshine
  4. Add a dash of vanilla extract (optional)

Ready to serve.

Serve in a glass with ice and the cherries. Can also be poured over vanilla ice cream. For gift ideas, pour into mason jars and add your own label and gift or store for later use.

Creamy Maple Buzz

  • Fill a tall glass with ice
  • Add 1 oz. of Bandits Maple Moonshine
  • Fill glass with half Cold Coffee
  • Fill remainder of glass with Cream

Traditional Moonshine can be consumed straight, but if you are looking for mix options, you can try these.


  Don’t want to start a cola war here … Coke or Pepsi. But both are acceptable. Even the knock-off brands.


Premade, bottled ice tea works best. Mixing it at a 3:1 ratio (3 parts ice tea to 1 part Traditional Moonshine) provides the perfect combination.


Grab yourself a mason jar and fill it with ice. Moonshine and tart lemonade are what summers are meant for … and winter and spring and of course fall.


Looking to knock the edge of the Traditional Moonshine? Then Ginger Ale is your answer. The sweeter ginger ale helps the moonshine go down the smoothest.


 Some may think that grapefruit juice on its own is hard enough to drink. Combine that with our Traditional Moonshine and you will be surprised with the bright, citrusy combination.


Turn Traditional Moonshine into a strong, stirred drink by adding sweet vermouth. Similar to a Manhattan (2;1 ratio), try a 50/50 mix of Traditional Moonshine & Sweet Vermouth (not dry vermouth) with plenty of ice to soften all the flavours.
