Moonshine, white lightning, hooch: It's mysterious, says David Kazarian, co-founder of the restaurant Mash'd. Many don't realize moonshine isn't just bootleg liquor anymore; it's a legal spirit available at retail stores and in restaurants.

Local outfit Mash’d aims to be Texas’ biggest seller of moonshine in restaurants.

It's been slinging white whiskey in Frisco since late 2013 and is now opening a second restaurant and bar in the West Seventh development in Fort Worth. Mash'd opens June 17.

Some of the drinks include the Jolly Rancher: watermelon-infused moonshine with lime and sugar; and the Russian Hillbilly: caramel moonshine with Kahlua, vodka and half and half.

The moonshine isn't for only drinking: Its ribs come slathered in barbecue sauce made with moonshine.

The theme of the restaurant is "rebellious American," and Kazarian says it describes the moonshine (also available frozen or in smaller sample pours) as well as the menu of burgers, wings, fried chicken and tacos.

If you go: The Fort Worth restaurant will sell an off-the-menu burger. You'll have to ask what's in it.

After the Fort Worth restaurant opens, the three co-founders hope to open a Mash'd in San Antonio in October.
