HumbleVet’s Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe
This version comes from one of our members, HumbleVet, it packs a pretty good punch with a nice flavor. We have found that it causes speech to slur and has been known to make people fall down on occasion. Enjoy!
16 oz. Apple Cider
16 oz. Apple Juice
2 Tablespoons Sugar
2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
2 Cinnamon Sticks
8 oz. Everclear
3 oz. Buttershots (Butterscotch Schnapps)
1 1/2 oz. Hot Damn (Cinnamon Schnapps)
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract (Optional)
1. Put the Apple Cider, Apple Juice, Sugar and Cinnamon Sticks in a pot, (I use a 9 cup Pyrex coffee pot for a small batch like this).
2. Bring the ingredients up to a boil, then drop down the heat and let it simmer until the Cinnamon Sticks start to open up. Shut off the heat, set it aside.
3. Let it cool down to room temperature, (I have a friend who always lets his sit overnight). Stir in your alcohol, add the vanilla extract (optional). You can sample it now, but it will taste better if you age it overnight or longer if you can wait.
This recipe makes a little over a quart. The nice thing is that when you fill up a quart jar or bottle there is some left over for sampling.
