750ml190 proof Everclear grain alcohol - or the highest proof vodka you can find
Bring the apple juice, cider, sugar, nutmeg, ground cinnamon and 8 cinnamon sticks to a boil.
Cover and simmer for 1 hour.
Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.
Add alcohol to mixture. **CAUTION: Do not add alcohol near a flame or heat source. It is highly flammable. Make sure mixture is completely cooled before adding alcohol.
Strain the cinnamon sticks out and pour into jars.
Divide remaining 6 cinnamon sticks among jars.
Place lids on jars and allow to sit in a cool, dry place for 8 weeks before enjoying.
Please enjoy responsibly.
Add Less Cinnamon: Not a fan of cinnamon, there is no need to add the cinnamon sticks to the moonshine recipe.
Apple Cider: Feel free to make your own if you have a good recipe.
Alcohol Content: It is difficult to calculate as it depends on the brands that you utilize. However, for general purposes it is about 30 proof with an ABV of around 15 percent. (This is just an estimate only, please do not come at me in the comments)
Jars: Any size canning jars that you have to store this Apple Pie Moonshine Everclear. You aren’t going to do the entire canning process. Just fill the jars and make sure they are tightly sealed.
Time: The eight weeks is a guide, as the alcohol content is very high. If you like strong spirits or use a less strong proof then you can drink before the 8 weeks. Please drink responsibly.
