Cast of '21 Jump Street' Parties with Moonshine

Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and crew imbibed on the potent liquor during shooting

When the movie trailer includes shots of Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill rolling kegs out of a liquor store, it's probably safe to assume that the 21 Jump Street movie — and cast — is down to imbibe a little. What one cast member revealed, however, was their drink of choice during downtime: moonshine.

Jake Johnson, cast member of the comedy and FOX's hit show New Girl, said to US Weekly that the crew's happy hours were a boozy adventure. "There were jars of moonshine, and everybody had their hands in them," Johnson said to the magazine. "It was brutal!" At least Johnson could recover in a hotel room, but Hill's shooting schedule made hangovers a little more painful.

Mooonshine, known for its home-grown roots — and deadly potency — is already being hailed as a new trending drink for 2012. Fortunately, there are classier ways to get a taste of the 'shine: Try a juniper shine or rose moon for your next party. Who knows, maybe you'll have a helluva night like Tatum and Hill.
