It's 5 O'Clock somewhere...
Looking for something a little different than a chilled, flavored whiskey shot, I recently picked up a bottle of Ole Smoky Butter Pecan Moonshine and decided to crack it open today with temps forecast at -20 with windchill tonight.
Below is the description from the bottle, er, jar, which you HAVE to appreciate, moonshine appropriate and can you say, "repurpose?" Yes, yes you can.
We blended our moonshine with the delicious flavors of butter, cream, toasted pecans and caramel. Liquid Heaven.
This is indeed liquid heaven, it's so VERY smooth, there's no moonshine kick at all to this that's how smooth it is. Granted, it's only 35 proof, nonetheless, it's a toasted pecan and caramel dessert dance in the mouth is what it is and too many of these would be dangerous!
Costing me $19.99 this is an excellent after dinner drink, and OK, a 5 o'clock somewhere drink... It's a repeat buy without question. I'm giving Ole Smoky Butter Pecan Moonshine 5 out of 5 Bachelor on the Cheap stars. It deserves a spot in your liquor cabinet and would be an excellent serving choice for just about any after dinner drink situation.
And Kudos to my friends Remington and Kayla, who gifted me the PERFECT shot glass made for a chilled shot. Check it out in the drink pic, an ice cube sphere and a shot of your favorite beverage makes for a perfect presentation.
Cheers, Dilly Dilly, A toast!
