There Is Nothing Better Than Southern Grandparents Drinking Moonshine


You could have your grandparents try all of the newfangled technology in the world and get the same reactions. But if you really want to have fun, give them something that used to be illegal, something that doesn’t taste good but is associated with a lot of great stories. You got to give ’em moonshine.

You expect the crazy reactions to hooch.

What you don’t expect are the stories: the custodian who made moonshine in the church basement, the peach stand that sold hooch to teenagers, the idea that rubbing the mountain dew on you knee will make it cure arthritis. There are more perfect southernisms in this video than “Gone With The Wind.” It is the perfect picture of southern grandparents.
