A Southern Grace: white lightning! (and a giveaway)

October 9, 2014

white lightning! (and a giveaway)

Yum

Remember when we went to the beach? I remember. I remember all the time.


We definitely took advantage of that grill. We fired it up on our first night there and made some barbecue grilled chicken and corn. Our breasts were huge (DD, in fact) and the cooking process took a lot longer than we anticipated, but it was ultimately worth the wait. Something that made the chicken extra special and unique was the addition of some apple moonshine grilling sauce from Southern City Flavors. The tart taste of apples sweetened with honey and a little kick of apple moonshine from the great state of Tennessee made the chicken moist and flavorful and full of zip.


Southern City Flavors is responsible for lots of tasty sauces, jams, and jellies (Zach's peach jalapeno sauce was my favorite--sweet and super spicy), not to mention pancake and waffles mixes and two types of peanut brittle. Find out if there's a store near you or, you know, just order online. Use the code Grace at checkout and get 25% off any order until November 31!


Incidentally, there are no pictures of the final product because we were so famished, eating easily took priority over taking photos. The chicken was delicious and just as tasty in a sandwich the next day, pulled and topped with a little more grilling sauce. If you'd like a chance to win your own prize package of goodies from Southern City Flavors, leave a comment telling me if you've ever tasted moonshine. Don't worry, it'll stay between us. :) Comments will close in one week, on October 16th (my Mamster's birthday, a very good day!), and I'll contact the winner shortly thereafter. Luck be with you!

Missing you.

Though Southern City Flavors did provide me with samples of some of their excellent products, the opinions stated above are my own. I'm far too clever to be bribed.

In the South, if you stay late enough, moonshine will definitely make an appearance at some point...it usually ends poorly...lol

I am sure this was a wonderful day and the chicken must have been delicious. The salty air does give a good appetite. ~~ Catherine

My aunt makes apple pie moonshine every Fall and it's awesome, but a couple of sips are enough to last the whole year haha

Alison Peterson said...

Someone gave us a bottle of white lightning once. I decline to say whether we ever in fact sampled it, or whether the bottle might still be with us. The chicken looks fabulous! And I'm missing corn on the cob, too.

Melinda Wood said...

I'm from the south and can say I've never tasted any. lol :)

Isla said...

Ah, yes. The one and only time I had moonshine was when I was in college. After a night of bar hopping, I had a splitting headache and awful (AWFUL!!)hangover. I dragged myself out of bed to get some Advil, and washed it down with what I thought was water in a Poland Spring bottle I found in my boyfriend's fridge. Only thang was...it was MOONSHINE and quite possibly the last thing I ever needed. Haha... that was over a decade ago.

I'm missing summer corn already. Our farmers market stopped selling it last week alas. Summer goes by all too fast. But at least, we still have weather warm enough to grill.

Bianca @ Confessions of a Chocoholic said...

I've never tasted moonshine! I would like to, someday :)

Pam said...

Sounds like a tasty dinner. I love the last shot of the beach - so pretty!

I have never tried moonshine but I'd be willing to. ;-)

Katerina said...

You reminded me of my youth and the beach bbqs we had during summers! Delicious chicken!

lisa is cooking said...

Grilling at the beach sounds delightful! Sounds like the chicken was worth the extra minutes too. I have never tried moonshine, and this needs to change.

Manda said...

I have been offered moonshine but didnt try it.

Donna Armstrong said...

Being from the southern appalachian mountains moonshine is very common around these parts. Alas I have never tried it.Too chicken to try it. lol

Patty Baskin said...

Yes I have had moonshine...Living in the country in South Carolina growing up I had some hard moonshine when I was 16..wow.. Also a few years ago a friend of mine had some apple pie moonshine, boy did that sneak up on you hard and fast!!

Erica said...

I would love to try the moonshine grilling sauce!

Juliana said...

I've never tried moonshine! And sure would love to try one day.
Hope you are having a great week Grace :D

Hi Grace:)
I remember well how excited you were about that Flank Steak over the Summer...Alas, Summer is but a memory. I'm excited to learn about this company especially since you sound pleasantly pleased. I've been contemplating doing some shopping online and have been keeping track of good reviews. (I've been tossing around starting a Pinterest board to keep track)

I'll be checking that link out but, in the mean time, I'll be dreaming about those DDs:)

Yes indeed, I have tasted Moonshine. And never will again, lol...way to potent for me:)

Thanks so much for sharing, Grace...Good Luck to everyone, it sounds like a great give-away!!!
