Crock-Pot Root Beer Moonshine
This is the first installment on an alcoholic beverage recipe each month. While I call these “moonshine”, they really are a Everclear grain alcohol or vodka based mixed cocktail drink. The word moonshine is just to suggest that the drink is a very strong alcoholic drink. The alcohol itself takes on the flavor of the other ingredients masking the true alcohol content.
With all of that said, lets get on to our first drink for the year. Crock-Pot Root Beer Moonshine!!!
A couple years back, I was introduced to root beer beer. That is, root beer flavored beer that has a sweet flavor of my favorite soda. Why not make a root beer moonshine drink that has all the flavors and tastes associated with my favorite soda and beer?
I used Hires Big H Root Beer Extract to make this recipe. I did have to order this product off Amazon but I am sure you should be able to find a similar product in a grocery store or maybe even a health food store.
Add the water, white sugar, brown sugar and pure vanilla extract to the slow cooker. Heat the liquid on HIGH for 2 hours. You want the sugars mixed in with the liquid so they are no longer gritty. Turn off the slow cooker and add in the root beer extract and stir well. Allow the liquid to cool completely and then add in the Everclear grain alcohol (or vodka).

Now, this recipe does call for 1 Liter of Everclear grain alcohol. But, you can decide how much alcohol you want in this drink. Using vodka will lower the alcohol percentage in the drink or using half of the bottle instead of a full bottle of Everclear (or even the vodka). You will not take away from the drink taste by adding less alcohol.
This recipe made almost 4 quarts of Crock-Pot Root Beer Moonshine. Add lids and rings to the jars and store in a cool dry place for a minimum of 7 days before you drink it. However you can store it pretty much for ever. The longer you store it, the more the alcohol will take on the taste of the root beer. You will taste less alcohol.
Before drinking, make sure to give the jar a good shake!
