How to Make Homemade Apple Liqueur or Apple Spice Liqueur

Step-by-Step

  1. 2 1/2 pounds apples
    2 cups vodka
    2 cups brandy
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    3/4 cup water

    Cap and age in a cool place for one month.
    Strain and filter.
    Combine sugar and water, boil, cool.
    Combine liqueur and syrup into aging container, age for a month.
    Strain as needed.

    Variation: Spiced apple. Add two cinnamon sticks, 10 whole
    cloves, remove spices when filtering/squeezing apples.

    *I used a very large pickle jar to age the liqueur.
    You can buy decorative empty bottles from any beer making store.

    I used large canning jars and decorated the tops.
