This is by far the easiest recipe for this drink I have come across! I am a bartender, and have tried many different versions of this recipe, and this is the one I will stick to! I would like to add one thing that I do not believe was mentioned in the directions. If you are bottling this for shooters, I suggest straining the finished product...I do so using a NEW pair of womens hose, this makes for a lot less sediments and your finished product is a lot less cloudy! Also This is a great idea for Holiday gifts, we make up a batch of this,(with this recipe you will get about 10 bottles) put on homeade lables and finish with with a red bow tied around the neck of the bottle and pass them out to friends....they love it!

I made this lastnight for my husband's birthday party and everyone loved it! I served it warm (kept it hot in the crock pot.) It was perfect on a cold Michigan November night and made the whole house smell incredible. Instead of Everclear, I used Captain Morgan's Spiced Rum and exchanged 1/2 the white sugar with brown sugar. Great Recipe! Read More

This is the best recipe I've come across for apple pie. We chill it and serve it as shooters at all our parties... everyone was pleased. The tastiest and most tolerable way to drink grain alcohol (everclear)! Read More

I now prefer 2 cups of sugar instead of the 3 cups I've listed in the recipe. There is plenty of sugar in the both the cider and juice. Also, I buy my juice and cider in 1/2 gallon jugs. I split the Everclear into the 4 jugs equally, then pour in the cooled mixture. Read More

I have had this drink and think it tastes great. Although when I found the recipe I also found out that Everclear (grain alcohol) is illegal in my state. Is there any other options to use Read More

This was really yummy. I followed the recipe exactly and tried it both warm and cold (I prefer it warm) very good! I'm going to try adding some different spices in with the cinnamon next time. I had a bunch left over after our party so the next day I mixed it half and half with Vernor's Ginger Ale and OMG it was awesome. Read More

I have been making "Apple Pie" for 7years now. I have tried many different versions and this recipe is good however it is excellent if you do half white sugar and half brown sugar. Also throw in some whole cloves with the cinnamon sticks.I re-use my alcohol bottles.I just rinse them in hot water.I don't throw the cinnamon sticks away I put one in each bottle.If you make another fresh batch then throw the cinnamon sticks away otherwise you will get a moldy-musty taste.You can make "Apple Pie Ala mode" by adding 1 cup of Vanilla Vodka I prefer "Absolute" Vanilla Vodka.The other thing that is not mentioned is you should let it sit for at least 2 weeks the longer the smoother it will be.store in dark closet.

Made this for a super bowl party and everyone that tried it loved it. Made half the mixture without the alcohol so the kids could have some and it tasted just as good. Read More
