This Ain’t Your Grammas Apple Pie

This Ain’t Your Grammas Apple Pie

Compliments of Lyn and Ted


1 gallon apple cider 1 gallon apple juice 3 cups white sugar

8 cinnamon sticks 1 liter bottle of 190 proof moonshine *


In a large stock pot, combine the apple cider, apple juice, sugar, and cinnamon sticks. Bring it to a boil, then take it off the heat and allow it to cool. Add the liter of moonshine. Pour this into mason jars, put the lids on, and let it mellow out. You could drink it right away, but it does get better after a couple of weeks.

This recipe makes about 9 quarts of apple pie moonshine.


Most  “moonshines” have been diluted down to 80 proof.  Everclear, a grain alcohol, comes in two strength proofs:  190 and 151.  You want the 190 proof!  And in some parts of the country, it’s Illegal to sell 151 and 190 proof, so check your state law, and label carefully.  If you are stuck using an 80 proof product, you will need to use twice as much to achieve the same taste and alcohol content as with the grain alcohol.

  1. Wow! This looks pretty potent! I might just have to make some up LOL. Thanks for the recipe.

  2. Awesome recipe, made a slight change, however. Instead of three cups sugar I used one cup sugar and one cup brown sugar for a slightly different flavor profile. Also, I used 750ml moonshine already cut to 80°, adding an extra shot for topping off the jars as well ( i wanted it to be sipping strength for the ladies who don’t prefer the alcoholic taste) also, I placed one cinnamon stick in each jar. My family thinks it is YUMMY and you could even make it without alcohol and drink hot for all the non drinkers and kiddies! DEF adding this to the good ole recipe book. Thanks!
