While sitting around the bonfire in Montana last summer, I took a few sips of a delicious homemade concoction. My sister's friend Joe was nice enough to share his recipe with me. Though this stuff taste like candy, let me remind you that it is not:)
Apple Pie Moonshine
2 gallons of Apple Cider
3 Cups sugar
Vanilla Bean Whole
1 Liter of Everclear (190 Proof)
Boil - Cider, Sugar, Cinnamon, and Vanilla bean until the Cinnamon sticks are unwrapped. Let cool down to room temperature. Once cooled then add Everclear. Chill and drink in moderation.
I enjoy this beverage served at room temperature in a mason jar:)
If you are looking to store this drink, I advise storing it in sterile mason jars with lids or recycled glass bottles with tops. If you like extra cinnamon, pop one of the used cinnamon sticks in with the moonshine as you store it. Keep it in a cool, dark, dry place.
