Watching New Yorkers Try North Carolina Moonshine Is Hysterical

This hilarious video by BuzzFeed shows some brave souls tying moonshine for the first time. Posted late last year, the video has now reached almost 5 million views. For us here in the Tar Heel State, Moonshine is a common drink and we know how to handle it quite well. But, this video proves that “acquired taste” is an understatement. They try a Tennessee brand, Ole Smoky Distillery, a North Carolina brand by Junior Johnson “Midnight Moon,” then move on to the REAL moonshine at 180 proof. The end is the FUNNIEST part! You’ll be cracking up.

Did you have a similar reaction the first time YOU tried moonshine?
