  • 1 A small pot
  • 1 A fermenting machine
  • 1 A few jars
  • 1 A small bowl
  • 1 A cooking thermometer


  • 1 kg sugar Ingredients for the sugar shine
  • 1 Pack Bread yeast Ingredients for the sugar shine
  • 13 Cup water Ingredients for the sugar shine
  • 4 cups moonshine Ingredients for the moonshine hunch punch
  • 4 cups fresh lemon-lime soda Ingredients for the moonshine hunch punch
  • 2 cups orange juice Ingredients for the moonshine hunch punch
  • 2 cups pineapple juice Ingredients for the moonshine hunch punch
  • 4 cups fresh fruit punch Ingredients for the moonshine hunch punch


  • To start, make the sugar shine. Put 13 cups of water into a small pot and bring to a boil. Add 1 kg of sugar and stir until dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool for around 15 minutes, or until it reaches 100 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Once cooled, pour the mixture into a fermentation machine along with one pack of bread yeast. Mix well and put the lid on the fermenter.
  • Allow the mixture to sit for one week or until it has fermented fully. This mixture is now your sugar shine, which is the base for your hunch punch moonshine.
  • Once fermented, strain out any solids using a fine mesh strainer. In a separate bowl, mix together 4 cups of the sugar shine and 2 cups of orange juice, 2 cups pineapple juice, 4 cups of fresh fruit punch and 4 cups of fresh lemon-lime soda.
  • Pour this mixture into jars or bottles and seal tightly. This is now your Hunch Punch Moonshine.
  • Store the hunch punch moonshine in a cool, dark place for up to two weeks. Enjoy responsibly and share with friends.


  • The alcohol content can be adjusted by increasing or decreasing the amount of moonshine used. It is also important to stir occasionally while cooking in order to prevent burning on the bottom of the pot.
  • If the hunch punch moonshine is too sweet, adding a bit of lemon juice can help to balance out the sweetness.
  • Also, adding a few drops of vanilla extract can bring out the flavor of the fruit juices and mellow out the booziness.
