“It’s my uncle’s recipe that’s whipped up way back in the woods…. a family secret. But here’s a recipe that’s almost as good as my uncle’s,” Wilson said before unveiling the secret recipe. 

See the recipe below.

WATERMELON MOONSHINE RECIPE

Ingredients

4 heaping cups of watermelon (about ½ a watermelon)

1 cup Everclear

½ cup fresh lime juice (about 3 limes)

1 ¼ cups sugar

1 ½ cups water

½ cup to 1 cup Watermelon Pucker

Instructions

– Combine watermelon chunks and Everclear in a glass jar with a lid.

– In a small pot, combine lime juice, sugar and water. Over medium heat, stir until sugar is fully dissolved (no need to bring to a boil). Remove from heat and let it cool down.

– Pour simple syrup into the jar.

– Allow it to sit in the refrigerator for a night or two.

– Pour the contents of the jar into a bowl and mash the watermelon with a potato masher, then strain mixture back into the jar.

– Add ½ cup of the Watermelon Pucker. Shake, taste to see if the flavor is to your liking. If it’s not sweet enough or you need a little more watermelon flavor, add in additional Watermelon Pucker.

– Store in your freezer until you’re ready for more.

Note: Always leave room in the jars. The mixture should not truly freeze up, however, err on the side of caution. Freeze overnight (or longer).

“Watermelon Moonshine” Music Video

Lainey Wilson’s limited-edition 40oz Stanley Quencher H2.0 FlowState Tumbler coincides with the release of her “Watermelon Moonshine” music video.

The clip debuted early Tuesday morning and takes viewers on a nostalgic journey back to the bittersweet memories of adolescence and a first love.

Directed by Stephen and Alexa Kinigopoulos, the video flawlessly captures the essence of young love and beautifully portrays the raw emotions and innocent vulnerability that come with it.

The clip follows Rachel Lynn Matthews’ character as she reminisces about her past and the boy who stole her heart, played by Sam Sherrod. Throughout the video, Lainey Wilson’s soulful voice narrates the story, her lyrics echoing the emotions felt by the characters on screen.

The “Watermelon Moonshine” music video is a beautiful tribute to the rollercoaster ride of teenage love.

“I’m so excited to premiere the ‘Watermelon Moonshine’ music video. This song is about the young, wild, crazy love that we all hope to experience,” Wilson shared in a statement. “From locking eyes for the first time, to playing spin the bottle with an Ole Smoky mason jar, to being too crazy about each other to tame it, I am so happy with how Rachel Lynn Matthews and Sam Sherrod brought the vision to life through their portrayal of their innocently passionate characters.”
