The necessarily ingredients for making Butterscotch Moonshine are sugar, water, brandy, vodka, Butterscotch flavor extract and yellow food coloring. It will need to rest for 30 days before it is finished, so leave plenty of time to store it before consumption.
To make Butterscotch Moonshine, first bring 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Be sure to stir the mixture constantly so it doesn't scorch. Continue to stir until the mixture turns clear. Once it is clear, remove it from heat, and allow it to cool until it is warm, not hot, to the touch. Pour the sugar water into a 1-quart container, and add 1/2 cup of brandy, 1 cup of 100 proof vodka, 1/2 teaspoon of butterscotch flavored extract, and 10 drops of yellow food coloring. Cover the container and shake contents well, then store for 30 days before serving.
This recipe takes approximately five minutes to prepare, not including boiling and the 30-day storing period. It makes 12 servings.
With enough planning, this homemade Butterscotch Moonshine can be given as a gift. Consider pouring it into a unique bottle and tying with a ribbon for decorative flair.
