  2. To start out you’ll need a large stockpot. The one I used was 5 gallons and it was pretty full.

  4. Combine ingredients in the stockpot, stir well, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for at least an hour. Remove from heat and let cool.
  5. Stir in 1 liter of Everclear, and if you want a more authentic taste you can also add a jar of corn whisky, which you can find at most liqueur stores nowadays.
  6. I sanitized my jars in the dishwasher, which is a fast and safe way to ensure your jars are clean. Fill each jar with moonshine mix and a couple cinnamon sticks to add appeal. After sealing the jars, clean and dry them before adding your labels.

  8. Everyone who has received a jar so far has asked for more, so I will probably be making more again next year. Merry Christmas everyone and remember to drink responsibly!

  1. To make real good apple pie, do not bring to a boil. Cook on low for 4 hours so the cinnamon sticks open up and release all that yummy flavor. Cool. Add pie to jars then add ever clear or corn whiskey. Shake before drinking.

    • Hi Jose, likely it may have been the type of cider you used. The higher quality ciders are pressed differently and have a cloudier appearance to them.
