Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine

Here is my recipe for homemade apple pie moonshine. I researched the process and checked out a few different recipes and home brews to come up with this small batch recipe.

Homemade Apple Pie Moonshine

Apple Pie Moonshine Recipe

1 qt apple juice (32 oz)
1 qt apple cider (32 oz)
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup of white sugar
3 cinnamon sticks
1 fifth of cheap 100 proof vodka
3 qt jars and lids

In a large pot, combine juices, sugars, and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil as you stir occasionally. Once at a boil, remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature. Once cooled, add vodka and stir well.

Pour into sterilized Mason jars with one cinnamon stick in each jar. Store in a cool, dry and dark place for at least a month.

Makes 3 quarts.

Conclusion:
After 3 weeks in dark cool storage, I had to test my moonshine. I served it over ice, and it was delicious. It has a good mixture of spicy, sweet apple flavor with a refreshing taste. Overall I’m thrilled with my very tasty homemade moonshine.

    Does the apple cider contain alcohol or is it non alcholic

      Molsndry – Yes it contains alcohol. The whole batch has a fifth of vodka used in the recipe.

        But is the cider called for in the recipe alcoholic or not? Such as, say, an Angry Orchard or rather the kind in the juice aisle?

          Amber – It’s just regular apple cider on the juice aisle. The only alcohol is from the vodka. Hope this helps. Email me back if you have further questions.
