This cinnamon-and-vanilla-infused moonshine from Somerset County is perfect for ’shine novices. Hits hard up front with that traditional corn-liquor kick, but rounds out nicely from the smoothness of the vanilla. Tall Pines distillers suggest mixing it with Coke or Dr. Pepper, but I prefer it as bootleggers intended: straight-up while hiding between the pines.

Pine Sap Moonshine is available at the distillery in Salisbury, Pa. Also, Full Pint Wild Side pub in Lawrenceville carries Tall Pines products occasionally.
