|Apple Pie Moonshine|
Change is hard folks! Leaning new things is hard! Sometimes a cocktail in the middle of life's chaos can make it seem better, even if it is temporary. Today is Cocktail Day so take advantage of the wonderful recipes you can find at the link at the bottom of the page!
I have several favorite cocktail's but a friend has been telling me about the Apple Pie Moonshine she had Christmas and how delicious it was, smooth, slightly sweet with a little kick at the end. If you love Raylan Givens…..and if you don't I don't understand you, and if you love Justified, you remember Mags' Apple Pie Moonshine. She made a truly deadly cocktail!
Mine is not deadly in the Mags sense but drink much of it and you WILL awaken with a headache the next day!
|These jars were my mother's canning jars. The big one in the center was my Dad's Moonshine jar!|
This recipe makes lots so be nice and share it with friends.
Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe
1gallon Apple Cider, raw, organic and unfiltered preferred
1 gallon Apple Juice, organic
1 - 2 cups of Turbinado or Raw Sugar*
6-8 Cinnamon Sticks
750 ml Everclear, 190 proof
Heat cider, juice, sugar and cinnamon sticks in a large pot until boiling, stirring occasionally to be certain sugar is dissolved. Taste for sweetness. At this point you want it to be somewhat sweet as the alcohol will cut the sweetness considerably! Remove the pot from the stove and allow to cool. Add the Everclear when the juice mixture is cool. Remember that Everclear is 190 proof and highly flammable! Use caution!
Fill sterilized jars with the 'Shine. Place a cinnamon stick in each jar. I also placed a vanilla bean in a few. Its good! Store in a cool, dark place. While you can drink it immediately the taste mellows with time. Once opened I put mine in the fridge.

Ooh! I absolutely love this idea. We have a company here in CT called Onyx that makes moonshine; I'll have to try this recipe and replace the everclear with moonshine! Thanks for sharing :)ReplyDelete
What a fun cocktail - I've never tried moonshine, but this looks like something I could try!ReplyDelete
Cute story. When we had to clean out the farm house early this year, we found several jars of moonshine on unknown origin that my uncle had hidden away. I was too scared to let any one try them so I ended up dumping them all down the drain.ReplyDelete
Your cocktail sounds great.
That's an intense drink with the Everclear! I'm from Washington State originally and we weren't even allowed to have that liquor in our state! CRAZY! :) Great recipe, thanks!ReplyDelete
