Apple Pie Moonshine

Apple Pie, Moonshine, Everclear,
Apple Pie Moonshine

Here is a basic recipe for the legendary apple pie moonshine. It’s super easy, and surprisingly smooth.  Don’t have access to shine? No problem, 190 proof grain alcohol like Everclear will do the trick.

1 gallon apple cider
1 gallon apple juice
3 cups white sugar
8 cinnamon sticks
liter bottle of 190 proof moonshine or grain alcohol (Everclear)

  1. In a large pot, combine the apple cider, apple juice, sugar, and cinnamon sticks.
  2. Bring it to a boil, then take it off the heat and allow it to cool.
  3. Add the liter of high proof liquor.
  4. Pour this into mason jars, put the lids on, and let it mellow out. You could drink it right away, but it does get better after a couple of weeks.
This recipe makes about 9 quarts of apple pie moonshine.  So make sure you get a few mason jars before you start. 

This is great served room temp or icy cold out of the freezer.
