Why yes, that IS moonshine; Junior Johnson's Midnight Moon moonshine to be exact. But this, apparently, is the legit stuff....so I don't have to worry about the "revenoors" coming after me. This particular batch is blueberry flavored - and, after one quick sip - just to say I tried it, it's pretty tasty with a rather wicked kick once you get past the flavor. Which is a dangerous combination in my opinion. Which is why this has been put away for a "special occasion." What that occasion might be, I don't know.
Funny how the receipt of this coincided with a recent viewing of Lawless; which was an excellent movie, by the way. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you do.
Although, I must admit, we did not have jelly jars with which to drink it - we were forced to use a wine glass. How bourgeois of us. I have since added jelly jars to my list of items to acquire for whenever that "special occasion" should arise. I'm thinking I only need two - I don't see a need for a full service of twelve.
If you've lived around here for any length of time, you've heard of Junior Johnson - usually in connection with racing; although he was quite well known for "running 'shine". Of course NASCAR is huge around here. But even more than football, it goes right over my head and doesn't hold my interest.
But, I have to admit, every time I'm on my way up to Man-Child's school and I see this sign....
It feels like I'm being issued a challenge...
But somehow, I don't think my poor, little Corolla could possibly be up to Junior's standards, but I'm tempted just the same.
