Orange Creamcicle Moonshine

recipe for orange moonshine

Prep Time: 5 minutes | Cook Time: 10 minutes gallons


  • 1 1/2 gallon orange juice
  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup powdered French Vanilla coffee creamer (Powdered allows the flavor to penetrate without diluting the drink. It’s worth it to splurge on the nice stuff)
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • 1 cup vanilla vodka
  • 4 cups Everclear or plain moonshine


Bring orange juice and sugar to a boil. Stir in creamer until dissolved. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.

Add vanilla extract, vodka, and moonshine. Stir, then jar and refrigerate. Let it sit for at least 2 weeks, shaking it every day or so. As with many things, the longer it sits, the better it gets.


If you’ve got an extra vanilla bean laying around, add the seeds to the boiling orange juice for a deeper vanilla flavor.
