Your New Source of Moonshine

UD - Red Truck Rural Bakery Double-Chocolate Moonshine CakeThis time of year, the calendar says you should be concerned with two things: chocolate and booze.

First, the Super Bowl. Then that greeting card holiday on the 14th. And finally, that most hooch-centric of patriotic holidays...Presidents' Day.

Here to get you through all three: the Red Truck Rural Bakery Double-Chocolate Moonshine Cake, an alcohol-soaked dessert that's pretty much exactly what it sounds like, available now.

In short, it's all that's good and Southern wrapped inside of 9 inches (and two layers) of chocolate cake. When you bite in, you'll first taste a layer of crisp chocolate glaze. And beneath that, a thick layer of still more chocolate, before finally a hint of moonshine—yes, moonshine—kicks in. Which reminds us: this moonshine isn't the super-secret stuff you'll find on, say, Willie Nelson's tour bus. But it is a 124-proof double pot-stilled rye that's made (like the dessert itself) in Virginia.

It's not hard to see when you can use this. Keep it on hand for the fourth quarter in the Super Bowl (when that cheerleader prop bet looks like it's about to pay off), or for the fourth quarter of your Valentine's Day (when that corner table reservation looks like it's about to pay off). Or on Presidents' Day...

Because the moonshine is for freedom.
