The basic ingredients include grain alcohol, fruit and some kind of fruit beverage. Mix and match your favourite fruit flavours to create a custom hooch recipe your guests are sure to love.

Tips and warnings

  • Grain alcohol is a double-distilled spirit with 95 per cent alcohol content. It is clear, tasteless and very potent. If you cannot find grain alcohol, substitute vodka in the hooch recipe.
  • Because of its potency, never drink grain alcohol straight.
