    I don’t even care if I ever learn to make moonshine! I’m happy just to watch Tickle do whatever he wants to do. He’s adorable! Sigh.

    I bought a bottle at Walgreen of the strawberry flavor. Ive had moonshine before and unless i got a BAD bottle that craps like drinking jet fuel there aint no smooth what so ever you cant taste anything but alcohol no strawberry hint of anykind. . even opening the jar its lie like pure alcohol . i may try one more jar to see if i got a bad one if not, id soon drink gas. I even had a taste of another moonshine and looks the same but very smooth like it should be with a kick.
