A while back, I posted a recipe for Apple Pie Moonshine.  It is one of my all-time favorite cocktails.  So, it was no surprise when I feel head-over-heels in love with this Peach Moonshine.

I can’t even count how many times I’ve given away bottles of this Peach Moonshine.  As soon as people try it, they are hooked!

While it has a silky smooth taste, you have to enjoy this drink slowly.  It is extremely potent.  It’s made with an entire bottle of 190 proof grain alcohol and an entire bottle of Peach Schnapps.  You don’t want to knock back a big ol’ glass of the stuff.  Start small and go slow.

This Peach Moonshine recipe is very easy to make too.  Just be sure to factor in that you need to let it sit for a few weeks before you drink it.  If you try it too early, you’ll be blown away by a very strong alcohol flavor.

This Peach Moonshine is one of those things that mellows with time.  Just let it sit so all of the peachy goodness has time to become one with the alcohol.  It’s worth the wait.  I promise.

This Peach Moonshine recipe is very easy to make.  Here’s the equipment I used to make it:

  • 128 oz white grape peach juice

    • 1.5 L at 140 proof added to a 3.64 L juice + 0.85 L peaches of 0 proof leads to a final volume of 5.99 L…. so ((1.5 L)(140 proof))/ 5.99 L equals 35 proof or about 17.5% alcohol by volume.

      Make it better by buying Simply Peach 100% juice in the cooler section of the grocery produce section. I only cook my mixture for about 30 minutes. When it’s cooled, add the real ‘shine and pour over large ice cube to not dilute much. The Apple Pie is good warm too. I added real apple pie filling like the peach recipe. Enjoy!


    • If you use 190 proof grain alcohol it will be much too strong to drink immediately. It needs to sit for at least 8 weeks to mellow out.

  1. Will the fruit in the jars still be preserved with the 151 Everclear? Is the shelf life about the same? I’m going to make this next week!

  2. This peach moonshine sounds fantastic!
    Hypothetically, if I had a quart jar of real moonshine and added a container of frozen lemonade concentrate, do you know how long would stay good if kept in the fridge?
