Catdaddy Punches with a Kick-Recipe for Mountain Moonshine Punch
Last fall I was privileged to strike up a relationship with Piedmont Distillers, who contributed their wonderful spirit, Catdaddy Carolina Moonshine, to serve at the LA Helps LA event, in support of the Gulf Restoration Network, that I organized.
When I went to my local BevMo recently to pick up a bottle I went on about how I loved it to the young clerk (in fact, everyone who tasted Catdaddy at our event loved it), but when he asked me what it was like, I had to answer that I really couldn't tell him. "It's not like anything else I've ever tasted" I responded. And that's the truth.
Catdaddy happens to have a great punch cocktail recipe at their website, which they were happy to allow me to present to you here, with a bit of adaptation. This Mountain Moonshine Punch (originally created by Jim Kearns and entered into competition at Tales of the Cocktail) makes for a great opener to an outdoor summer party (it's especially great with barbecue) so I urge you to get to your local spirit store and pick up a bottle, so you can whip up a pitcher, right away.
