Apple Pie Moonshine


This apple pie moonshine tastes like apple pie in a jar, but it does pack quite a kick if you're not careful. The longer it sits in the fridge, the better it gets. Place a cinnamon stick in each jar if you like a lot of cinnamon. Makes a great gift.

Cook's Note:

I like to use leftover apple juice and cider jugs to store the finished product. Wine and liquor bottles work well, too.
