National Happy Hour Day with Dumplin Creek Watermelon Falls Moonshine.

National Happy Hour Day 2021

November 12th is National Happy Hour Day, a day to be with friends, listen to good music, and have a few tasty drinks! Happy hours are a great way to save money, mingle, and relax. If you aren’t able to make it to your favorite bar, brewery, or restaurant to celebrate today, we’ve curated a list of our favorite drinks that can be easily made in the comfort of your own home and that can be made in large quantities for sharing. Here are some classic happy hour drinks: 


Watermelon Moonshine Margarita 

The classic margarita is a happy hour favorite, but we like to switch it up by using moonshine instead of tequila. This drink is guaranteed to be a fan favorite. 


3 oz. Dumplin Creek Watermelon Falls Moonshine

2 oz. lime juice

1 oz. simple syrup

0.25 oz. triple sec 



Place the moonshine, simple syrup, triple sec, and lime juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and then strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a lime wedge if desired.


Whiskey Sour

This whiskey sour is the perfect combination of bitter, sweet, and oaky and is perfect for the fall and winter months. 


2 oz. Butcher’s Bourbon

0.75 oz lemon juice

0.5 oz. Simple syrup 

3 dashes of bitters 



Combine the simple syrup, lemon juice, bitters, and whiskey in a shaker. Fill with ice. Cover and shake for about 30 seconds, until the shaker is frosty. Strain into a martini glass and enjoy! 


Gin & Tonic

This gin & tonic is not too heavy and not too sweet, which makes it the perfect option if you want to drink a light cocktail. 


1.5 oz. Dumplin Creek Gin 

1 oz. lime juice 

Top with tonic water 



Fill a short glass with ice. Add gin and lime juice. Then top with tonic water. Garnish with a lime wedge.  



This flirtini is a great option if you want something fruity that isn’t too sweet. Enjoy this drink before a night out. 


1 oz. Dumplin Creek Vodka 

1 oz. pineapple juice 

0.5 oz. triple sec

0.5 oz orange juice 

0.25 oz simple syrup

Top with Sprite 



Pour ingredients into a shaker. Shake, shake, shake. Strain into a martini glass and then top with Sprite. 


Strawberry Mojito 

This strawberry mojito is the best happy hour drink during the summer. This drink is a great option to enjoy by the pool on a hot day. So save this recipe for next summer! 


2 oz. Renegade Rum 

2 large strawberries 

3 mint sprigs 

0.5 oz. simple syrup 

Top with club soda 



Put strawberries and mint sprigs into a shaker and muddle until the oils have properly been dispersed. Add ice to the shaker. Pour in the pineapple juice, orange juice, triple sec, and simple syrup to glass. Shake and then pour into a cocktail glass. Top with club soda.
