Apple Pie Moonshine Shots: We have had several requests for a little more kick to the “Shine”, after many enjoyable experiments (We always test our recipes) this is what we’ve come up with. I think you’ll find this a tasty variation. Apple Pie Moonshine is really a liqueur and the sugar amounts are merely my prefererence, you may adjust them to your taste . . . Be Creative!
1 gallon Apple Cider
½ gallon Apple Juice
7 Cinnamon Sticks
1 cup Granulated Sugar
1 ¾ Cups Brown Sugar
4 Cups (32 oz.) Everclear (Grain Alcohol) REMEMBER Add after it has cooled to room temperature.
Combine first five ingredients in large pot, stir in the sugar until it has disolved and boil for 15 minutes, you are doing this to create a syrup to add the alcohol into. Remove from heat. Let it cool to room temperature, if you don’t let it cool you will lose alcohol due to evaporation. Remove cinnamon sticks and then add 4 cups of Everclear. Pour into some mason jars or glass bottles. This makes about 7 quarts. This recipe will be about 13-15% alcohol or 26-30 proof, it will depend on how much liquid evaporates when you are boiling the ingredients. Enjoy!
