A Song & A Sip – The Deadbeat Scoundrels

The Deadbeat Scoundrels are joining us for the 6 O’Clock Swerve on August 4th at Barley’s in Knoxville’s Old City. Click here to learn more or get tickets. From the mountains of east Tennessee, this band is blazing a musical trail across the country. The Deadbeat Scoundrels combine punk, folk, bluegrass, and rock to create a sound that is on the rise in popular music. The band is known for its energetic live shows, which include foot stomping originals, high energy, and cover songs in the band’s unique style. We hope you enjoy this track “Hey Lil Mama” from the Deadbeat Scoundrels!

This is the latest in our blog series, A Song & A Sip, brought to you in part from our friends at Sugarlands Distilling Company. Each week, they share a great drink recipe as part of their #WhatToDrinkWednesday, and we thought it would be fun to pair the drinks with an amazing music performance.

The tunes of the Deadbeat Scoundrels are perfect for summer, with lots of energy and spirit, just like this week’s Sip, a concoction that’s a little sweet, and a little strong for the perfect combination.

This What to Drink Wednesday we are also celebrating National Watermelon Day with a Watermelon Mojito made with Silver Cloud Moonshine!


1.5 oz of Silver Cloud

.75 oz of Lemonade

4 oz of Pureed Watermelon chunks

.5 oz of Lime Juice

5 mint leaves (2 for garnish)

Muddle Mint in the Silver Cloud in the bottom of the glass. Fill to top with ice. Add Lemonade and lime juice. Top with watermelon puree and shake in same glass with mixing tin. Top with a splash of lemon lime soda and garnish with mint and watermelon spear.

Sips up!
