My Apple Pie "Moonshine"

1 gal spiced apple cider
1 gal apple juice
8-10 cinnamon sticks
1-1/2 c. granulated sugar
1-1/2 c. brown sugar {I use light brown}
750 ml bottle of 190 proof grain alcohol

Combine all ingredients in a large stock pot, except for the alcohol, and bring to a boil.
Remove the mixture from heat & let cool to room temperature.
Once the mixture is completely cool, add in the alcohol.
Transfer to sterile mason jars {I use 5 of the big 2000+ ml jars}
I also divide up the cinnamon sticks so that each jar has one or two.

The apple pie is ready for consumption!  {though, it gets better if you let it "mellow" for a couple of weeks} It can be served warm or cold.  But remember to drink this with caution!  For the amount of alcohol in this, you really can't taste how strong it is... It's too good & too smooth!

I recommend storing the jars in a dark, cool room.

  4. Im suddenly very thirsty! Thanks for the recipe...

  5. This looks fabulous thanks for sharing! Is the amount of alcohol enough to keep it from molding or going bad? How long can it be stored like this and still be safe? Could you email me back on this? Thanks so much!

  6. How long can you store this in the cupboard?
