This Pumpkin Pie Moonshine is one of my favorite fall cocktails!
Two of the most popular recipes on my site are my Apple Pie Moonshine and my Peach Moonshine. It’s no wonder, they are both incredible cocktails. I can’t even count how many times I’ve given away bottles of the stuff. As soon as people try these, they are hooked!
Recently, my mom made a batch of this Pumpkin Pie Moonshine. The flavors are warm and comforting and perfect for the cool days of fall.
This moonshine goes down really easy so you have to enjoy this drink slowly. It’s strong and extremely potent.
It’s made with 190 proof grain alcohol and vodka. Drink it slowly because it will sneak up on you.
This Pumpkin Pie Moonshine is very easy to make. Here’s the equipment I used to make it:
Just be sure to factor in that you need to let it sit for about a month before you drink it. If you try it too early, it’s like drinking rocket fuel (not that I’ve ever had rocket fuel, but you get what I mean).
The ‘shine needs time to mellow and come into its own. It’s definitely worth the wait.
I have quite the collection of flavored moonshine recipes. You can get them all in my eBook, How to Make Flavored Moonshine.
