My Favorite Things: Making this year's batch of Mare's Moonshine

Let's far we have 2 batches of strawberry and "our" berry blend(not sure what kind of berries i have growing on my fence but they are delicious), a batch of local cherries, and a batch of strawberry, blackberry and blueberry blend. Local sugar plums are in the fridge waiting for more vodka for the base. I still have several batches of my moonshine i put together last year that i will strain and bottle up for this year's Christmas gifts. After sitting that long...a year and a half or so, the liquor is very nice and very potent!  These new batches will probably sit in the basement until Christmas 2014, except for the sugar plum which i will open on Christmas Eve thru New Year's day. Hopefully we will have enough sugar plum to carry a few batches over till 2014, but sugar plum is VERY popular!
