I had some moon shine bottles from a food and wine festival I went to, and wanted to make them into a cool refreshing drink. Strawberries are the one fruit that reminds me of summer , and I added a few raspberries and black berries , just to complete the picture. You could substitute the fruit with watermelon, but….. I am not a real fan…. it would totally work with any juicy summer fruit, so give it a try.
It combines coconut, strawberries, raspberry and blackberry pieces along with moon shine and mint .
