Ingredients

For 78-proof moonshine (very strong), makes nearly 1/2 gallon (see notes for diluted versions)

  • 750 millileters Everclear (151 proof grain alcohol)
  • 2 (12-ounce) cans frozen apple juice concentrate (or use up to 5 for a weaker potency; see notes)
  • 1-3 cinnamon sticks (plus more if making a weaker potency; see notes)
  • 1 cup spiced rum (Captain Morgan)
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar

Instructions

  • Place all the ingredients in a clean pitcher or bucket. Stir to combine. Let it sit overnight, covered, at room temperature.
  • The next day, transfer the moonshine to mason jars or bottles. Store them, closed tightly, in the refrigerator. The higher proof versions will stay good for a few years. The versions less than 64 proof should be consumed in 2-3 months.
  • If you want to drink this warm, do not heat the moonshine. It will burn off some of the alcohol, plus it could potentially be dangerous. Instead, heat some plain apple cider, then stir in an equal amount of apple pie moonshine off the heat.

Notes

Here are the adjustments for less potent versions:
64 Proof: Use 3 (12-ounce) cans frozen apple juice concentrate and add an extra 1/2 stick of cinnamon.
55 Proof: Use 4 (12-ounce) cans frozen apple juice concentrate and 1 extra cinnamon stick.
47.5 Proof: Use 5 (12-ounce) cans frozen apple juice concentrate and 1 1/2 extra cinnamon sticks.
42 Proof: Use 6 (12-ounce) cans frozen apple juice concentrate and 2 extra cinnamon sticks.
38 Proof: Use 7 (12-ounce) cans frozen apple juice concentrate and 2 1/2 extra cinnamon sticks.
If serving people with various tolerance levels, you can add apple cider to individual servings to dial down the potency as needed.
