Looking For Grape Flavored Moonshine (Purple Jesus?) Recipe

Postby RevRon » Mon Apr 30, 2012 4:00 am

I am looking to replicate a type of flavored moonshine known around here as Purple Jesus. I'm fairly certain that it contains grape juice concentrate but am not certain about the rest. I plan to replicate it using Everclear. Does anyone have any information as to what the ratios are and what the other ingredients are, if there are any?

This?:

1 part ginger ale
1 part grape juice
1 part vodka
1 part alcohol

Probably could just use 2 parts alcohol and skip the vodka.

You take the gin Mikey swiped, the 'La Mesa' wine the wino bought for Stevie, the Wild Turkey Nick stole from his dads liquor cabinet, and whatever anyone else 'found', mix it all together and add a can of welches grapelade concentrate, wallah! Purple Jesus!!!

For a change, add a can of Hawaiian Punch concentrate and you have Jungle Juice. -hey-

I don't remember it having any ginger ale. I don't think that the stuff we had is the same stuff bartenders are calling purple Jesus.

Lol, I remember a cocktail like that served straight out of a Coleman water cooler during my youth but I don't think that's quite what I'm looking for. You may be right about it just having Welch's grape juice concentrate added to it though. I may pick up a bottle or two of Everclear and see what I can come up with.


The closest thing I have had that tastes like what I used to get (Almost Exactly Like) is the Grape Moonshine from the distillery that makes different shines in the smokies.
