orange Creamsicle Moonshine



Base Ingredients:

  • 1.5 liters of Everclear (or any high-proof grain alcohol)
  • 1 can (12 ounces) of frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1 can (14 ounces) of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

Dairy Ingredients:

  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 1 cup of milk


  • 1 cup of water (for dilution, if desired)


  1. Prepare the Orange Juice Mixture:
    • Begin by taking the can of frozen orange juice concentrate out of the freezer and allowing it to thaw completely. This might take a few hours, so plan accordingly.
    • Once thawed, pour the orange juice concentrate into a large mixing bowl or a large pitcher.
  2. Combine Sweetened Condensed Milk:
    • Add the entire can of sweetened condensed milk to the orange juice concentrate. Use a whisk to mix these ingredients together until they are well combined and smooth.
  3. Incorporate Sugar and Vanilla:
    • Add 1 cup of granulated sugar to the mixture.
    • Add 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
    • Stir the mixture thoroughly until the sugar is completely dissolved. This ensures that the moonshine will have a smooth consistency without any grainy texture.
  4. Add the Dairy:
    • Gradually pour in 1 cup of heavy cream and 1 cup of milk into the mixture. It’s important to add these slowly while continuously stirring to maintain a smooth texture.
    • Continue to stir until the heavy cream and milk are fully incorporated into the mixture. This will give your moonshine its creamy, rich consistency.
  5. Mix in the Alcohol:
    • Slowly add the 1.5 liters of Everclear (or your chosen high-proof grain alcohol) to the mixture. Stir constantly as you pour to ensure that the alcohol blends well with the other ingredients.
    • If the mixture seems too strong for your taste, you can add up to 1 cup of water to dilute it. This is optional and based on your personal preference.
  6. Blend Thoroughly:
    • Make sure all the ingredients are well combined. You can use a whisk or a hand mixer to ensure the mixture is smooth and creamy. It’s important that the alcohol is evenly distributed throughout the mixture.
  7. Bottle the Moonshine:
    • Carefully pour the moonshine mixture into clean, airtight bottles or mason jars. You can use a funnel to make this process easier and to avoid spills.
    • Seal the bottles or jars tightly to keep the moonshine fresh.
  8. Chill and Store:
    • Place the sealed bottles or jars in the refrigerator. Let them chill for at least 24 hours before serving. This resting period allows the flavors to meld together and enhances the taste of the moonshine.
    • The moonshine should be stored in the refrigerator and can last for several weeks due to the high alcohol content. However, always check for freshness before consuming.
  9. Serve:
    • When you’re ready to enjoy your Orange Creamsicle Moonshine, shake the bottle or jar well before serving, as the ingredients may separate slightly during storage.
    • Serve the moonshine chilled, either straight from the fridge or over ice for a refreshing drink. You can also mix it with club soda or sparkling water for a fizzy twist.
  10. Optional Serving Ideas:
    • Garnish with a slice of orange or a twist of orange peel for an extra touch.
    • Serve in a frosted glass for an added refreshing experience.


  • Adjusting Sweetness: If you prefer your moonshine sweeter, you can add more sugar to taste. Start with small increments and taste as you go.
  • Experiment with Flavors: While this recipe focuses on an orange creamsicle flavor, you can experiment with other citrus juice concentrates to create different flavor profiles. Lemon, lime, or even grapefruit could provide interesting variations.

Enjoy your homemade Orange Creamsicle Moonshine responsibly! This delightful drink combines the nostalgic flavors of a creamsicle with the warmth of moonshine, making it perfect for gatherings, special occasions, or a unique gift.
