The Milkhouse Barn Dance fragrance has been a Milkhouse best seller for years. The fragrance is a masculine tribute to the rural life.
Moonshine is one of America’s oldest traditions as is the barn dance. Prohibition made alcohol illegal in America from 1920—1933. This caused the whiskey trade to go underground. Whiskey was produced in small stills in remote hills. Corn whiskey was transported by night over back country roads with only the moon to light the way..thus the name “Moonshine”. So, what is more fitting then to design a moonshine cocktail to go with this fragrance? And now that moonshine available through legal distilleries, there is no reason not to host this fun get together.
I filled some galvanized tubs with ice to keep the drinks cold. Why not attach a bottle opener right to the side of the ice tub? This moonshine cocktail is perfect, but don’t forget the beer and some ice tea.
The food is super casual. Popcorn, peanuts, and some chicken wings are easy to put in little buckets and enjoy. A batch of pickled eggs is a great addition. If you make them in a 22 ounce Milkhouse butter jar, you can keep them refrigerated and bring them right to the table. The 22 ounce Butter jar will hold a dozen eggs. Red kerchiefs for napkins and mason jar mugs keep the theme going. The milkbottle candle and cream jar are both a perfect choice for burning on your table.
So crank up some good old fashioned cowboy music and let’s get this party started!
