  • 1 gallon apple cider
  • 1 29 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 2 1/2 cups dark brown sugar - packed
  • 3 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 2 cups 190 proof grain alcohol
  • 2 cups whipped cream vodka


  • In a large stock pot, combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT the grain alcohol and vodka.
  • Simmer until all ingredients combine, stirring constantly.
  • Remove from heat and let cool completely.
  • Add grain alcohol and vodka to cooled mixture.
  • Line a funnel with several layers of cheese cloth.
  • Ladle moonshine through the funnel into clean mason jars, leaving a 1/2 inch head. You want to filter out any remaining solids. (Cheese cloth may need to be changed after 1-2 jars)
  • Place lids on jars and allow to sit in refrigerator for 1 month before enjoying.
  • Please enjoy responsibly.

Helpful Tips for All Recipes
  • When a recipe call for House Seasoning Blend, you can find the recipe on www.itisakeeper.com. Simply search for "House Seasoning Blend" or you can substitute salt and pepper to taste.  
  • I always use unsalted butter in my recipes.
  • I always use a meat thermometor to test for doneness when cooking meat.
  • When a recipe is made in the oven, it should be pre-heated to the temperature in the recipe, unless otherwise noted.
