This a super easy recipe that is great for tailgating and fall get togethers. As the name implies it tastes just like “Apple Pie”
- 1/2 gal apple juice from bottle or concentrate
- 1 gal apple cider
- 1 Fifth (750ml) of Everclear (75% or 151 proof) or Clear high proof liquor like Bacardi 151
- 6 cinnamon sticks
- 3 cups sugar
- 3 cups brown sugar
Combine apple juice, cider, cinnamon sticks, and sugar in a large pot and bring to a boil on the stove. Simmer 15-30 min until all the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Remove cinnamon sticks. Stir in you alcohol, bottle (empty liquor bottles work great) and chill in refrigerator until ready to serve!
This recipe makes 10% alcohol by volume or 20 proof and maybe adjusted based on preference.
