I needed an easy but AMAZING gift for some of my coworkers. We love going to happy hour together, so I thought a holiday cocktail would be the perfect thing! A few years back a friend gave me some Apple Pie Moonshine. It was delicious and I have been wanting to try to make my own version. If it turned out good I would hand it out as gifts to my work friends.
And if I say so myself, the moonshine turned out good! Enjoy this easy recipe!
- 1 bottle of apple cider
- 1 bottle of apple juice
- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 4 cinnamon sticks
- 1/2 tablespoon of allspice
- 1/2 tablespoon of ginger
- 750 ml of Everclear
- 375 ml of Whipped Vodka (this gives the moonshine a vanilla flavor)
Add all ingredients, except for the Everclear and vodka to a crockpot. Cook on low for a least 8 hours. Let the mixture cool and then add the bottles of Everclear and whipped vodka. Stir and remove the cinnamon sticks.
I gave my moonshine to my friends in jars wrapped with burlap because gifts in jars wrapped in burlap are the best thing ever 🙂
