Tennessee Orange Cocktail Recipes

Come rain or shine, you’ll always find loyal Tennessee Vols fans at the Old Tennessee Distilling Company. We’re as proud of the Vols as we are of our Tennessee moonshine roots, which is why our newest product is a tribute to all things orange. 

Dumplin Creek Tangerine Moonshine

Introducing our handcrafted Tangerine Moonshine! At 98 Proof and 48% alcohol, this moonshine is a real kicker and will definitely add some true Tennessee spirit to your next tailgate. As with all our products, the Tangerine moonshine is distilled from farm-to-bottle. We use as many natural and local ingredients as possible and craft our liquor with respect to the long tradition of southern distillers. But how do you drink Old Tennessee’s latest moonshine? We’ll give you some tips. 

Five Tangerine Moonshine Recipes to Celebrate Tennessee and the Vols

Use our guide for the ultimate Tennessee cocktail – whether our team is winning or not, these mixes get the party started. 

1. Tangerine Margarita

Tangerine Margarita will travel well, so you can make a batch of it in advance and simply add ice when you get to your party. If you have friends around, avoid spending hours making drinks by mixing up a punch bowl. 


  • 3 oz. Dumplin Creek Tangerine Moonshine
  • 2 oz. lime juice
  • 1 oz. simple syrup
  • 0.25 oz. triple sec

Combine the ingredients in a shaker and pour over ice in a tumbler. Level up your drinks game by adding sliced strawberries, lemon, or orange wedges as a garnish. 

2. Tennessee-Style Tangerine Iced Tea

This is another easy addition to your football season drinks menu. You’ll have a delicious cocktail in no time, using only a few ingredients!


  • 2 oz. Dumplin Creek Tangerine Moonshine
  • 6 oz. sweet tea
  • A dash of honey, if desired

Combine the tea and moonshine in a tumbler filled with ice. Add a dash of natural honey to taste. A few mint leaves or orange or lemon slices would work well as garnish here. 

3. Tennessee Tangerine Blast

It might be fall, but this cocktail will have you feeling like you’re back in July. Think of a cold Sunkist – bursts of sweet orange with a bubbly fizz make this an easy-going cocktail. 


  • 3 oz. Dumplin Creek Tangerine Moonshine
  • 2 oz. lemonade
  • 1 oz. club soda

Fill a glass with ice and add the moonshine, lemonade, and club soda. Pack some extra vitamin C in your cocktail using citrus slices, or leave it as is and enjoy with a straw. 

4. Tangerine Sex on the Beach

Here’s a cocktail that needs a few more ingredients but is worth the effort. Play around with flavors and swap out the fruit juice to find a combination that best suits your palette. 


  • 2.5 oz. Dumplin Creek Tangerine Moonshine
  • 1.5 oz. cranberry juice
  • 1.5 oz. peach juice  

Add the ingredients to a shaker with ice. Fill a tall glass with fresh ice and strain the liquid over the blocks once combined. Garnish with an orange slice, a Maraschino cherry, or an orange cocktail umbrella. 

5. Old Tennessee Moonshine Mimosa

How better to celebrate victories and holidays than with a good old-fashioned moonshine mimosa? This isn’t like your traditional mimosa though, so maybe don’t serve one to your grandma – it packs a punch! 


  • 2 oz. Dumplin Creek Tangerine Moonshine
  • Brut champagne or sparkling wine 

Add chilled tangerine moonshine to a champagne flute and fill the rest of the glass with cold sparkling wine, prosecco, or champagne. Cheers!
