My dad made some for a family men's get together we do each fall. He thought it was to sweet and weak so he doubled the everclear in it. We are not a big drinking group...just a little casual, social drinking in the evenings around the campfire usually but that stuff changed that! It tasted like candy and was a lot more alcohol than it seemed like. Apple Pie Moonshine has now been banned for all future family functions! LOL

So I have been messing around with this and Here is another idea.


take any fruit that you have around... Say peaches....
Put them in a mason jar all the way to the top.
Do not over fill just fill it full.
Then fill the jar up with Everclear and let it sit for a few days.
Shake this jar a couple of times a day.
Then pour off the Everclear into another jar.
Keeping the fruit in the original jar.
Add sugar to the fruit. and close the jar and let it sit a few days shaking up a couple of times a day.
when you get the syrup at the bottom poor that into the everclear jar.

and repeat this process 2 maybe 3 times. You want to get all the syrup out of the fruit and each time you do this you get a sweeter product.

You will end up with a jar that is full of everclear and fruit juice mix.
You now have 100% alcohol flavored drink.... you will need to cut this with water to your own strength.
Save the fruit in the freezer to add to drinks or what ever another time..

Here's a peach pie one.....

Ingredients:

gallon (64 oz.) Welch’s White Grape Peach Juice
1 cups White Sugar
1 can Sliced Peaches (15-16 oz.)
3 Cinnamon Sticks
cup ( 4oz.) Peach Schnapps

Bring this to a boil, then let it simmer covered for about an hour. Let it cool down to room temperature then add the following:

1 cup (8-9 oz.) 190 proof Grain Alcohol, Everclear, Graves, etc.
cup (4 oz.) Peach Schnapps

You may have to strain this a couple of times through cheesecloth. Now just pour it into some Mason Jars and let it sit for a couple of weeks in a cool dark place. You can drink it right away but the flavor does mellow and taste better.

I used to get peach shine in Virginia
I bet you could substitute the apple juice for any kind of preferred fruit juice for a different flavor.

Made a batch at half strength the other week, and boy was it good. I would hate to see what full strength would do after a couple of glasses.

I have made this and love it. One thing I've started doing as of late is mixing it with hot cider. I bought some of the powdered instant cider that seems to only be available this time of year. I use hot water from my Kuerig to mix the cider then top off with the apple pie. Awesome.

You are overdoing it. Grandma filled mason jars with raw cherries, 1/2 everclear and 1/2 water. Seal the jars and let them sit. Served at holiday meals 4-5 cherries and a lil juice would do you right!!

Don't forget to add a little whipped cream to the top after you pour it in a glass. Taste just like apple pie and vanilla ice cream

The whipped cream in a squirt can taste good on top of a shot of shine. Plus it can be pretty interesting at parties.
