Sonnie's Story

It can be served heated or chilled. Remember to drink this with caution! For the amount of alcohol in this, you really can’t taste how strong it is; it’s so smooth!

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


1 gal
apple cider, spiced
1 gal
apple juice
1 1/2 c
1 1/2 c
brown sugar, light
cinnamon sticks
750 ml
everclear (190-proof alcohol)

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine all ingredients in a large stock pot, except for the alcohol, and bring to a boil.
Remove the mixture from heat and 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 1 or 2.

The apple pie is ready for consumption! (Though it gets better if you let it mellow for a couple of weeks.)

In my state Everclear is only available threw special order, and the liquire law wants to know what are you going to use it for. And there's a lot of red tape to go threw to get it. Does anyone know of a subitute I can use?
