1. 1 bottle (750 ml) of 190 proof Everclear, moonshine, or high proof Vodka if Everclear is unavailable in your state
2. 1 cup of Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
3. 1 gallon of Apple Cider
4. 1 quart ( 4 cups ) of Apple Juice
5. 3 cups of brown sugar
6. 1 cup of white sugar
7. 10 cinnamon sticks
* You will need a large pot big enough to mix all these ingredients together and at least 6 quart sized canning jars. However, any resealable jars will work.


Pour the Apple Cider and Juice into your pot with the Cinnamon sticks.

Bring to a simmer

Once you juice is simmering, pour in the brown and white sugar and stir the pot till the sugars dissolve.

Once sugars are dissolved, remove from heat and let cool to room temperature.

*Warning: if you don’t let it cool first, you will loose much of your alcohol to evaporation. Do not pour in alcohol until cool.

Once cooled, pour in the bottle of Everclear and cup of Spiced Rum and stir for a minute.

Put 1 or 2 cinnamon sticks into each of your canning jars and pour your Apple Pie Moonshine filling each jar.

Finally, it’s time to enjoy. Warning: You will become very popular with your friends.

    I bought the fresh Apple cider gallon in the refrigerated section. Is this correct? It is paturized but says keep refrigerated….I’m afraid to use it …will it keep after I make it ?

      Hi Donna! What a great question. We have never tried it with the refrigerated Apple Cider. So we’re not sure if you will need to refrigerate or not. It would make sense that the alcohol may preserve it. But, we don’t want to tell you something that could be wrong by using the refrigerated Apple Cider. If you do decide to use it. Please let us know how it works out for you.
