Recipe: Make Your Own Moonshine This Fall!

Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks are all the rage this time of year.

However, if you’re looking for something a little more boozy. Oh, who are we kidding?! We’re talkin’ A LOT more boozy…then this Apple Pie “Moonshine” from A Taste of Meghan’s Kitchen might be just the ticket!

Word of caution: This drink can sneak up on you if you’re not careful. Wait until a very crisp, cold night to try this drink.

If you give it a go, be sure to snap a photo while you’re making it OR drinking it and post it on our Facebook page. Just another way to celebrate fall! 🙂 Enjoy!

Ingredients:

1 Gallon Apple Cider
1 Gallon Apple Juice
3 Cups Sugar
8 Cinnamon Sticks
1 Liter Bottle 190 Proof Everclear, Moonshine or other Grain Alcohol

Directions:

In an extremely large stock pot, combine the apple cider, apple juice, sugar and the cinnamon

sticks. Bring the mixture to a boil and then remove the pot from the heat and allow it to cool.

Once the mixture has cooled add in the liter of alcohol and stir.

Pour (or ladle) the mixture into mason jars. (You can either throw away the cinnamon sticks or

add them to a few of the jars as you are bottling them if you desire.) You can drink the mixture

immediately; however, it does get better after it has sat for a couple of weeks.

This will make approximately 9 quarts of Apple Pie “Moonshine”.
