Everyone knows I love making my own liqueurs.
I've done lots of summer and winter type liqueurs, but hadn't dabbled that much in fall liqueurs or in this case fall moonshine.
But once you make this Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe, you will return to it every fall!
- Apple Cider - your favorite brand, I use organic.
- Apple Juice - look for one with no added sugar and preferably organic.
- Brown Sugar.
- White Sugar.
- Cinnamon Sticks - use these instead of powder so you get the flavor without the graininess of the cinnamon.
- Moonshine - use a clear unflavored moonshine.
How to Make Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine:
You're going to love how easy it is to make this delicious moonshine!
Combine the apple cider, apple juice, white sugar, brown sugar and cinnamon in a large sauce pan. Bring it to a boil, then turn off the heat and let it cool to room temperature.
Once it's cooled, stir in the moonshine. Pour into mason jars.
That's it! You've just made an amazing fall moonshine!
Warning – this tastes so good, you do not realize how strong it is. We love to stir it into hot apple cider, into tea, poured over ice cream and just sipped. It makes a great Christmas gift.
It would be great for Thanksgiving or Halloween fall cocktails.
