Description

Smoothly intoxicating!

Ingredients

  • 1 gallon Spiced Apple Cider
  • 1 gallon Apple Juice
  • 1-½ cup Granulated Sugar
  • 1-½ cup Light Brown Sugar
  • 8 whole Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 bottle (750ml Size) 190-Proof Grain Alcohol

Preparation

Combine all ingredients in a large stock pot, except for the alcohol, and bring to a boil.

Remove the mixture from heat and let cool to room temperature. Once the mixture is completely cool, add in the alcohol.

Transfer to sterile mason jars (I use 5 of the big 2000+ ml jars). I also divide up the cinnamon sticks so that each jar has 1 or 2.

The apple pie is ready for consumption! (Though it gets better if you let it mellow for a couple of weeks.) It can be served heated or chilled. Remember to drink this with caution! For the amount of alcohol in this, you really can’t taste how strong it is; it’s so smooth!

I recommend storing the jars in a dark, cool room.

when storing it in the jars, do you need to process them in a canner to seal them like you do veggies & fruit????

My husband has been wanting me to attempt Apple Pie forever. Not sure where to buy the 190 proof grain alcohol though.

my cousin made this for me, oh my it is good. I too can’t wait to see how it in a couple of weeks. Really pay attention to her warning (although I did sleep well LOL) “Remember to drink this with caution! For the amount of alcohol in this, you really can’t taste how strong it is; it’s so smooth!” thank you
