The Mad Trapper

I visited the Red Cup Distillery in Vegreville Alberta where Rob De Groot (and his lovely wife) make their Wheat Shine on an old-fashioned small copper pot still. This is as close to real prohibition era moonshine as you will ever find. It turns out that Lemon and Grapefruit juice are a great complement to the natural flavour of his malted wheat spirit.

The Mad Trapper

1 1/2 oz Wheat Shine (Red Cup Craft Distillery)
1 oz Fresh Grapefruit Juice
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/4 oz Sugar Syrup (1:1 ratio)
Soda Water

Build in a rocks glass
Stir to chill

Enjoy Responsibly!
