I’m not much of a drinker, but a friend of mine gave me a swig of this the other day and omg… it was so good I couldn’t even tell there was any alcohol in it… ummm yeah, dangerous, I know. But as sweet as it was it got me thinking about how it was made (besides tons of sugar and everclear) so I thought you might enjoy this one…
I’ve tried many recipes for making a fun and down-home party drinks, but this one is so good you’ll have to be very careful with it or it may disappear before it’s even finished “brewing”.
And not just that, but this should also come with a warning sticker like; “Beware – may cause serious drunken behavior”, because it tastes so good that you’d never know there was any alcohol in it.
You can use other clear liquors for this if you prefer, but then…. it wouldn’t be called apple pie moonshine if there weren’t any everclear (or moonshine) in the recipe right?
Ok, so here it is… the best apple pie moonshine recipe you’ll find anywhere. This recipe makes close to 1 and 1/2 gallons of apple pie moonshine, but the longer you cook it the more it reduces and makes a stronger end result.
mason jars (8 pints = 1 gallon )
- 1/2 gallon apple juice
- 1/2 gallon apple cider
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 tbl. apple pie spice
- 6 cinnamon sticks
- 4 cups everclear
- 1 cup goldschlager
- 1 cup butterscotch schnapps
- 1 tbl. vanilla ext.
Add first six ingredients into a large pot on the stove and simmer for at least 20 minutes. Cool to room temperature, and remove cinnamon sticks. Then stir alcohol and vanilla ext. into cooled apple pie moonshine base. You can put the cinn. sticks into the mason jars before sealing if you want for a spicier flavor. Store for 2 weeks….or however long you can wait. It does get more potent with age, so make sure to label it carefully!
And please drink responsibly.
