Stephanie's StoryA friend gave this recipe to me a few years ago. I have made it every fall since. Everyone loves it!
moonshine or everclear
enough mason jars for approx. 2 gallons
1Start with a stockpot large enough to accommodate approximately two gallons of Apple Pie Moonshine.
2Add 1/2 gallon of apple juice and one gallon of apple cider to your stockpot over medium heat.
3As the mixture begins to warm, add the white sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon sticks.
4Bring the stockpot to a boil, stirring the mixture to ensure that the sugar is fully dissolved.
5Cool the Apple Pie drink to room temperature.
6Add 750 ml or moonshine or grain alcohol such as Everclear.
7Pour the Apple Pie Moonshine into mason jars with lids.

How long should they be in the jars before it can be opened? I want to give this as a gift and I need to make sure I have enough time to make it. Thank you

Thanks! I am in the process of making it now. I have read other recipes and they always say it has to be sealed for at least 30 days or so but I think they were mostly homemade wine recipes so maybe that is why you need to let them set for so long. Thanks again!

@ Cristy....I've made this numerous times, and you can drink it right away if you want. I've just found that the longer it sits, the better the flavor and potency.
