    I have never had moonshine, even though my grandfather used to make it! This looks interesting! Might have to try it.

    We don’t drink so I am guessing that ever clear is a type of alcohol? Love everything about this drink if there is something I can substitute for the ever clear?

    I remember when I first tried moonshine. It was so gross. It’s come a long way, I actually bought some flavored kind the other day. I never thought of flavoring my own.

    Wow! I love the flavor you used, and the color is really pretty. Everclear is rough to drink by itself, so using a sweet flavor is genius. Blue raspberry taffy is perfect!

    I would have never known where to start when it comes to making moonshine. I love all the flavors you have incorporated; raspberry, taffy, and moonshine. Can’t wait to give the recipe a try.

    I have never heard of anyone making home made taffy. I can’t even image trying to do it myself.

    Out of curiosity, I tried moonshine as a teen and it was not a very pleasant experience. This is the reason why I never attempted to make some. However, your recipe looks so good I am going to try making some myself.

    I have always wondered what moonshine is as I had never had it. Looks like a fun drink that kids will enjoy because of its color too.
