Blackberry Moonshine





1 Bottle (Liter) Everclear

3 to 4 containers Blackberries – you want right around 20 ounces of berries


4 cups water

3 cups sugar




Pour the grain alcohol into a large jar with a lid
(Jar should be at least 1/2 gallon in size)
Now put blackberries in with the Everclear
Crush the blackberries with a wood spoon
Seal the jar
Let the jar sit for 3 weeks
Shake the jar every other day
After the 3 weeks has passed — it is time to make the simple syrup
Bring water to a boil and add sugar
Stir constantly until the sugar dissolves
Let cool completely
While sugar is cooling
Strain the blackberries out of the jar
Return alcohol back into the jar
Now pour in the sugar mixture
Seal the jar
Let this sit for two weeks or even longer

    3 cups is way too much unless you like a syrupy drink when put in the freezer. Try 1 1/2 cups sugar to 4 cups water

      Hi Braden
      After looking at many Moonshine recipes — most of them call for lots of sugar. I have not made this recipe, but with the booze, water and berries – I don’t know, I think 3 cups is about right.
      Not positive — but after researching lots of other recipes, it sounds about right.

    Can you tell me what the proof of this blackberry moonshine would be? and would It be sweet with 3 cups of sugar?

    Thank you

      Hi Dean
      The proof depends on what proof you use — usually 190 proof.

      I don’t think it would be to sweet. I know it sure sounds sweet, but if it were me, I would stick to the recipe — make a batch and see how it is and go from there.
