Comments on Apple Pie (Bulk):

By Scooby on June 16th, 2011 at 19:09:25

Ive been makin this apple pie for 8yrs now and ive read alot of comments, and by far this is not how i make mine. i have 3 different alcohols in mine and my ingredients are also different. Ive tasted other peoples recipes and then let them try mine and by so far they like it the way i make it. mine is an old family recipe straight from the hills. ill give you this much ingredients: sugar, apple cider, apple juice, cinnamon sticks, apple slices, and everclear. the other 2 i wont say but you can buy them in the liquor store.

By Shannette on June 15th, 2011 at 07:08:23

I have put mine in plastic and glass jugs and never refrigeratered... it was great... but unless canned.. maybe it should be refrigerated .. the longer it sits..it is awesome. Love the variations to the recipe everyone is sharing. I can only find Everclear in MD... TX and checking in NJ this week. can't find in PA.

By greeniyes28 on June 13th, 2011 at 17:48:38

can someone tell me does this have to be refrigerated

By Rob on June 12th, 2011 at 11:39:52

I also use Honey in it and its great everytime.

By emyli on June 11th, 2011 at 11:32:31

Ive tried the recipe from up above, and ive tried this recipe, and its much better..

1 gallon apple juice
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. apple pie spice
1 tbs. vanilla
3 cinnamon sticks

simmer 20 mins, then let cool to room temp. remove cinnamon sticks.

3 cups everclear
1/2 cup gold schalgger
1/2 cup buttershots

By michelle on June 4th, 2011 at 16:15:36

i have used shine instead of everclear before because where i lived the quit selling everclear for a while so i decided to try moonshine in it was still just as good but lookout a drink or two and your sweating lol

By Danny on May 27th, 2011 at 18:28:27

I actually boil it for about 2 hours-ish.... what this does is takes alot of the water out of the mixture, thus giving you all the taste with less volume. So I do 1/2 gal of cider and juice, 4 cups sugar, and 8 cin sticks per 1/5 of everclear, boil for 1.5ish hours till about 1/2 is gone, then cool, then add booze. This puts the % up to 30 to 40% and tastes just as great. Enjoy!

By Dave Brownfinger on May 12th, 2011 at 16:43:08

I like to spice this up with a lil per then take a big ol fucking shit in the bowl. If you pour enough booze in your drunk ass friends won't even notice that there is a big chunk of corn filled shit in their cup!

By Angie on May 11th, 2011 at 14:44:53

It may not be very strong. But you drink more faster because it is so damn goo. So no matter what the alcohol content, its going to be alot in a short time. And thanks for the calorie count... RRRRRRR I wont be drinking this anymore.

By Missing Blueberry Pie on May 8th, 2011 at 16:50:42

Does anyone have the recipe for Blueberry Pie?

By MichaelT on April 29th, 2011 at 21:03:30

ok ... I made it for the 1st time last night & it didn't turn out like my friends :'( ... I used: 1 gal apple cider, 1 gal apple juice, 5th of Capt Morgan's spiced rum, 3/4 bottle of hot damn, 1 cup vanilla vodka, 1 cup white sugar, 3 cups brown sugar, 1/8 tsp cinnamon, 1/8 tsp cloves. I boiled everything together (except alcohol) for 45min - 1hr let cool overnight - refrigerated till next night then added the alcohol & stirred... didn't even smell like when it was cooling... so pissed! HELP! What can I do to fix this?!

By woody on April 22nd, 2011 at 21:44:42

steve yes it will. its better if u store it in the dark. it will keep a long time.

By Todd on April 9th, 2011 at 17:59:08

Had this with ice cream in a blender and was fantastic.

By wisconsinite on April 6th, 2011 at 23:01:26

we make this all the time for parties but we add a third of everclear. makes the drink much stronger but it is still delicious.

By Jake on February 27th, 2011 at 14:44:17

Needs butter and apple pie spice. Also it should be simmered for 15-20 min with apple pie filling in it, and then strained while still warm.

By pimpinva on February 18th, 2011 at 06:27:01

I use captain morgans 151 spiced rum instead of everclear and yummmmmy!

By notyetrated on February 10th, 2011 at 15:36:38

Make this alot...use hott damn for extra kick and cinnamon flavor. don't forget to let it cool before adding alcohol, very important. I use only apple cider(1 gal), 2 cups sugar, some vanilla, cinnamon sticks(4), everclear(5th), about half to 3/4 bottle hott damn.

By Nate on January 24th, 2011 at 07:01:36

i didnt make this but at a xmas party we added almost a whole bottle of everclear with it hot n it tasted amazing after about 6 shots i was done as well as everyone else

By Tara on January 20th, 2011 at 21:47:24

Wonder how this would taste with Hot Dam or Goldschlogger instead of the cinnamon sticks??? Anybody tried it that way?

By Kaptain on January 17th, 2011 at 21:57:57

It is interesting to see how easily buzzed some people get when you mention everclear. This recipe has 10% alcohol in the final drink. About the same as wine, or 4 shots of this equals 1 shot of regular rum. Add the everclear hot or cold will not change the taste, except adding it to hot liquid will decrease the alcohol content.

By Nelly on January 11th, 2011 at 12:14:01

Had it last year at the Ice Fishing Extravaganza!! My girlfreind tipped over in slow motion. Gonna make my first batch, ala mode.

By dontlk2me on January 7th, 2011 at 18:31:40

i busted a nut right when it hit my lips

By zSteve on January 1st, 2011 at 14:56:54

Asked several times by several poeple but never really answered. Will this keep without refridgeration? Thanks.

By Frank on December 31st, 2010 at 17:15:54

I prefer to use about 3/4 the amt of sugar and boil it for a long time so it reduces down. It really covers the taste of the everclear then. Don't forget to let it cool before you add the alcohol.

By manda panda milwauke on December 31st, 2010 at 11:55:18

i love this stuff ive made it before it goes down easy then hits u hard!!!!

By khrush on December 29th, 2010 at 15:44:57

64 Oz apple cider
48 Oz apple juice(12oz concentrate + 36oz water)
4 sticks cinnamon
4 whole cloves
2 cups sugar(1 white + 1 brown)
16 Oz Everclear (190 Grain alcohol)
yields: 4 qts. or 5/5ths

By Trev on December 28th, 2010 at 05:11:53

Just ordered case of everclear three gallons for two bills not bad set for the year ......mayb lol

By em on December 26th, 2010 at 19:39:05

I make this drink with no sugar at all, only 1 gallon of apple juice, 1 gallon of apple cider, 5-7 cinnamon sticks, and almost a full bottle of Everclear -- I leave about 1 inch worth of liquid in the bottle. Heat the juice, cider, and cinnamon for about 20 minutes which is just about long enough for it to come to a boil for a little bit. Cool until just warm. Add Everclear. Pour back into the juice and cider jugs. LABEL CLEARLY! The alcohol cannot be tasted at all, so unless someone is told it's in there, they won't know it's there until they start getting buzzed. I had a pregnant relative take a swig of this before she was told it was alcoholic. She had no idea.

By Murf on December 24th, 2010 at 12:02:36

Can you make it with just apple juice and not apple cider?

By Highclmbr67 on December 20th, 2010 at 18:31:07

i see many here asking about having to refrigerate. If you buy Mason jars and give it a hot water bath after adding the alcohol, you can seal it and it can be kept in the pantry for quite a long time...and it gets more potent with age:)

By James on December 18th, 2010 at 08:28:55

Where did I go wrong? I used 1 gal apple, 1 gal cider, 8 cin sticks, 2 cups brown sugar, 1 cup sugar, 3caps of vanilla, 1 ts of apple pies spice. Simmered till stickes opened then let cool. Added 3/4 of a fith of everclear and wow is this strong. Too strong and I like a stiff drink. Wish I wouldn't have added the everclear. Because the cider was Awesome till it was added. Any Ideas? I wouldn't think that 3/4 of a 5th would be too much for 2 gallons?

By Bill on December 16th, 2010 at 17:33:11

There's no reason to boil the cider.

If you bring it to 155F and hold for 15 minutes it's pasteurized.

By amanda on December 6th, 2010 at 08:42:08

Has anyone tried to can this drink? I would like to make a big batch of it and can it.

By ME! on December 6th, 2010 at 06:25:32

Has anyone ever tried adding caramal or vanilla to the recipie? I have made this for almost 10 years now and we wanna try to spice it up!!

By Kyle on December 4th, 2010 at 15:22:27

Apple pie is awesome! Make it every year around Christmas. This summer on a float trip some people let me try peach pie and it was even better than apple. I used 2 half gal jugs of white peach and grape juice, 3 cups sugar, 2 cans of sliced peaches, 6 cin sticks, 1 cup peach schnapps, and a couple dashes of ground cinnamon. Brought it to a boil for 2 hours. Let cool and added half bottle of everclear and another cup of peach schnapps. I strained it twice and this stuff is freakin unbeilvable!!! Crazy good!!!

By Rosita on December 2nd, 2010 at 16:40:54

Add sour apple vodka plus the everclear you won't feel ur toes lol

By Misery on November 29th, 2010 at 18:03:46

@Sunshine, a friend made this with Moonshine once. The amount of alcohol was the same, and it give it a good distinct flavor over some of those with Everclear. It's good! Have fun!

By sunshine on November 26th, 2010 at 11:30:51

has someone used moonshine instead of everclear? I'm thinking the same amount as everclear...how about weighing in on this?

By Squire on November 22nd, 2010 at 16:10:23

your right brown sugar , but instead of vanilla , try and find "whipped cream vodka" by pinnacle (1 cup) , makes it Apple pie ala mode" then put it in a crock pot on low simmer .... then serve warm... Now thats a party....

By Rick on November 21st, 2010 at 20:15:44

I just made it by mixing apple juice, 5 cinnamon sticks, palm full of cloves, splash of vanilla, half a cup of brown sugar, and a 5th of captain Morgans, boiled till the cinnamon sticks opened then, let cool and added 5th of Everclear. Made 5 5ths and it is a butt kicker.

By MaMa on November 20th, 2010 at 13:28:57

Does anyone have any suggestions for a good apple juice & a good cider? Im making this for Thanksgiving! :)

By Rob on November 20th, 2010 at 08:57:19

This drink is awesome. It sneaks up on you, and then you can sneak up on her.

By XO, on November 15th, 2010 at 13:49:30

This drink really is not that strong

1 qt 180 proof = 0.225 gallons of ETOH on a total of 2.25 gallons => 10% ETOH

By Angel on November 14th, 2010 at 12:42:10

P.S....My boyfriends mother banned it at family gatherings!it's that good!!!!

By angel on November 14th, 2010 at 12:38:17

you can buy everclear at any liquer store!I live in a small town & i can get it here!!

By Cayenne on November 11th, 2010 at 17:01:55

Oh yea, if you want it to stay good for long periods, it has to be bottled and kept cold or it will go bad :(

By Cayenne on November 11th, 2010 at 17:00:39

This is a wonderful drink BUT ONLY AFTER IT SITS FOR TWO WEEKS. Try is and see how much smoother and tasty it is. But watch because you taste ZERO alcohol after two weeks and it will kick butt!

By slcrensh on November 9th, 2010 at 19:23:37

I like to take 1gal. apple cider 1 gal apple juice 4 cups sugar 7 cinn.sticks 4 cups sugar 2 cap full of vanilla and two apples. boil all together.. make sure you cut the apples into wedges before boiling. let cool for about 1 hour and add a 1/5 of cheap everclear...........Dam this is good

By sniper5.56 on October 30th, 2010 at 05:17:55

gives me a boner!!!!

By Matt on October 27th, 2010 at 17:09:03

This drink needs to be totally cool before Everclear is added if not it wont bond to the flavors properly. Try it if you dont believe me and also try leaving warm, serves real well at parties

By Davo on October 27th, 2010 at 10:24:23

Shit got me fucked up
Smiley face:)

By Dustin on October 23rd, 2010 at 10:57:23

If serving at a party, I have found to pour it into a few gallon water jugs and take your crock pot. Pour what you need into the crock pot and put it on a low setting. Keeps it warm that way and the smell will entice the people in there!

By Nicholas on October 22nd, 2010 at 13:05:17


Apple Pie (Bulk) Drink Recipe


* 1 qt. Everclear [ or Golden Grain or 180 Proof Vodka - all work well - just use
a middle shelf vodka] Amount is approx. “90% of a 5th”
* 1 gal. Apple Juice
* 1 gal. Cider, apple
* 6 -8 sticks Cinnamon Sticks [or cinnamon powder, or Hot Damn Liqueur]
* 1 cup white sugar, 2 cups brown sugar

Mix apple juice, apple cider, sugar, and cinnamon sticks together while all are getting hot. Boil until cinnamon sticks lose flavor (they will unroll). Remove from heat, let cool. Add Everclear, and stir. Taste. Refrigerate. Add more Everclear if you want it stronger, more sugar if you want it sweeter, or even more cinnamon. Throw it in the fridge and drink when ever you want it.

By Dani on October 22nd, 2010 at 08:30:05

So how do I take this to a party and serve warm there? Would a crock pot work?

By Dan on October 16th, 2010 at 14:01:01

We drink this stuff every year at deer camp. Never gets old. Idler up, Idler out!

By Noni on October 15th, 2010 at 18:30:00

Had this for the first time yesterday...went and got the goods to make my own batch...any one know how long it keeps?

By big matt on October 10th, 2010 at 09:47:11

By Dionne on October 7th, 2010 at 14:03:14

S good! ! Just made it.....mmmmmmmmm

By Carl on September 30th, 2010 at 06:19:53

Good drink made better using brown sugar. This is definitely a creeper drink, watch out!!!!

By Travis on September 28th, 2010 at 11:50:14

Cant wait to try it.

By Deb on September 23rd, 2010 at 12:54:44

Apple Pie is also good when it is still a little bit warm still, great buz

By Someone. on September 23rd, 2010 at 05:47:31

How long did it take to make this?
I love this drink :)

By CC on September 19th, 2010 at 19:16:52

someone asked for an alternative to Everclear. We use extra smooth Korbel Brandy. Tastes great

By John from Joliet, IL on September 19th, 2010 at 18:29:36

A bar that I go to makes this all the time and sells shot's of it for a dollar. I finally got the owner of the bar to break down and give me this closely guarded recipe!! It's pretty much the same as the one here. I'm making it right now and really hope it turns out good!!!

By daisy on September 6th, 2010 at 15:53:18

WOW....great drink...fall around the corner,,will be a great drink to sit aroundthe camp fire...with friends..and have some great apple pie....thanks for all the ideas on how to make this ...180% grain alcohol....can see the funhappening now.....

By Angella Ferguson on September 3rd, 2010 at 13:38:22

On my second batch, used 1 cup white sugar and 2 cups brown sugar.... also added a dash of pure vanilla to the batch. Turned out AWESOME!!! Thank you all for sharing your ideas and recipes!! I have heard to keep it refrigerated and to shelf it... Does this NEED to be refrigerated? And what is the shelf life or is there one???

By Doc Allgood on August 28th, 2010 at 20:33:57

I've made it using either Everclear, Golden Grain or 180 Proof Vodka - all work well - just use a middle shelf vodka - the bottom shelf stuff tastes like lighter fluid.

As for the cider - most US Grocery stores carry pasturized unfiltered apple cider in the produce section - often near the other natural juices like Odwalla brand or Pom Wonderful juices.

I've got 2 batches going tonight - one regular Apple Pie made with 1/2 Gal cider and 1/2 Gal Apple Juice, 4 cinnamon sticks, 8 cloves 2 cups of sugar and 20 oz of Golden Grain.

The second is Peach Pie - made with 1/2 Gal Peach Cider, 1/2 gal Welches White Grape Peach juice, 3 cinnamon sticks, 4 cloves, 2 cups of sugar, 20 oz Golden Grain and 1 cup Peach Schnapps.

Next batch I try will be Cherry Pie made with Bottled Cherry Juice (found in the Health Food section of most grocery stores), Welches White Grape Cherry Juice and Sugar. I'm still working on this version - should be awesome as well...

"Pie" is the Drink of choice at Dragon*Con on Labor Day weekend so that gives this about 5 days to mellow before we consume it!

By Amy And Chris on August 27th, 2010 at 21:30:02

This is a great fucker up drink instead of using cinnomon sticks we use cinnomon great tasting and an enjoyable buzz

By jackie on August 24th, 2010 at 15:48:32

mix half apple pie and half ice tea mmmmmmmmmmmm we like to call it tiki tea

By Mike on August 24th, 2010 at 14:37:37

I mix the ingredients then once it cools put the everclear in it, then pour the contents into a ceramic jug with a cork stopper. Then we take it camping and place the jug beside the campfire and drink it out of the jug all night long. It goes down really smooth once you warm it up, just dont let it get hot. It's a hangover just waiting to happen.

By oldskool on August 22nd, 2010 at 16:26:23

1 gal apple cider, 2 qt cherry juice (juicy juice), 8 cin sticks, 2 cup white, 1 cup brown sugar, touch of van. ext., everclear, amount? serve, enjoy, get sick, passout!

By Brad on August 21st, 2010 at 11:34:47

Actually you can get apple cider at any time of the year. I bought the Indian Summer brand of apple juice and right next to is was the same brand apple cider. Its not as good as the fresh stuff you get but considering I would have paid twice the price for it I'm okay with the cheaper stuff. Tastes great.

By the situation on August 18th, 2010 at 17:46:31

im only 7 months old and teething something fierce so my parents have been substituting this recipe in my bottle and i just love it

By Kyle on August 12th, 2010 at 21:38:47

Apple cider is hard to come across all year so I use "Simply Apple" apple juice. It's in the refrigerated juice section. It's NOT from concentrate and tastes JUST like apple cider. OH, and don't forget the sugar like I did, WOW, lol.

By Kevin on August 7th, 2010 at 18:38:28

Do You have to to keep the apple pie cold after making it? I don't have room in my refridgerator, so is it ok to leave in a cupboard?

By Ted on July 23rd, 2010 at 11:43:51

making it now... boil for about an hour and a half instead of evercloear you can used 80 to 100 proof vodka and keep the sticks after for extra flavor

By yvonne on July 16th, 2010 at 09:57:16

instead on cinnamon sticks we use hot damn. extra yummy this way

By renegade on July 14th, 2010 at 17:19:14

this is so good!!! it is just awesome...cant say enough bout this mouth watering, deliciously concocted liquid piece of heaven on earth...and i am jack drinker!! lmao..wonderful!

By applepiemaker on July 12th, 2010 at 00:19:25

wow you people make this thing sound hard to do.. you dont have to boil for 3 hrs, you dont have to let it go for 45 mins, and no need to add xtra sticks to jars. yes can use regular cinnamon powder if you want, start with 3 cups of sugar i use 2 brown 1 white 6-8 cinamon sticks. mix everything in the pot while its getting hot, (minus the everclear) let it go untill all cinnamon is gone from the sticks ( they will unroll), remove from heat, let cool, it doesnt have to be cold to add the everclear just not hot, after it cools mix in about 90% of a 5th of everclear, stir.. taste... then you can add more everclear if you want it stronger, more sugar if you want it sweeter, or even more cinnamon, putin qt size masion jars(makes 8-9 jars) thow in fridge and drink when ever you want it, like i said its not rocket science,

By katie on July 8th, 2010 at 19:49:39

I had some leftover and put it in the freezer and made slushies... delicious on a hot July day -- and I was quite popular!

By AmberRae on June 25th, 2010 at 15:29:32

Reading these comments I can't help but wonder how many of us are from Wisconsin. :) Brewer game tailgates, barn parties, bon-fires, Odie was the name of one submitter, Moonshine. :) My uncle has been making this for my family at our cabin for years. Its tradition, biggest mistake was making it the losers shot for hanging ball and horse shoe tournaments. No one wants to win anymore. :)

By Taren on May 24th, 2010 at 10:06:01

To clear up everone's Everclear questions about where to get it and what it is...

By Kristin on April 20th, 2010 at 03:53:06

Hey i've always loved this shot but never tried making it on my own. Does it matter what size in length the cinnamon sticks are??

By Tyler on April 16th, 2010 at 08:49:21

I'm outside of the States, so I've modified the recipe a bit (I still bring in a bottle of Everclear from home!). I also make it in a smaller portion.

Apple cider is hard to come by where I'm at, so I just use two parts straight apple juice (2 liters). I add a quarter cup each of white and brown sugar. I'll throw in a random amount of cinnamon sticks plus additional cinnamon powder until it tastes right (part of the fun during cooking is tasting, right?). Then after an hour or so of boiling (sometimes let it boil and cool several times), cool it to room temp or lower (prevent the alcohol from steaming off) and add the Everclear (about 0.25 L). Turns out great every time... there's really no way to ruin this magic potion :)

By judie on April 10th, 2010 at 06:07:20

Had this at a NASCAR race this spring
I could only taste it because I am diabetic
I was wondering if you could substitute splenda for the sugar and low sugar juice

By Goose on April 7th, 2010 at 19:16:00

To make it better please go play in traffic....natural selection.

By Amy on April 7th, 2010 at 14:02:32

I've made a bazillion batches of this:
1 gallon cider
1 gallon apple juice
7-8 cinnamon sticks
4 c. sugar
Once boiling... turn off, remove from heat and put a lid on the kettle.

Then, once cooled in the morning, or many hours, add everclear or 180 proof vodka (cheaper) and then bottle.

I see no point in simmering for 3 hours. I do put one of the boiled sticks in each bottle though.
I've also had mine sit for over a year, but if letting it sit, maybe don't put the cinnamon stick in it, because it gets very cinnamony over time! ENJOY! :)

By kyle on April 2nd, 2010 at 12:32:18

hey can u substatute ground cinomomn instead of sticks

By cindy on March 22nd, 2010 at 11:38:02

HELP!!!! I added apple cider vinegar and not just apple cider. Anyone know what to do to make it better?

By Greg on March 19th, 2010 at 15:32:41

I use 6 cinn. stixs, 2# of sugar, gal. allpe cider, gal. apple juice-bring to boil and simmer for 45 min. cool add a 5th of everclear and 5th of 40% vanilla vodka for ice cream effect. (everclear can be purchased in any military base in any state by an active or non-active military member.

By Mike on March 12th, 2010 at 16:29:27

i make it using McCorick's Apple Pie Spice instead of a cinnamon stick and it turns out great never tried it with a cinnamon stick though so that will be my next batch

By Roger on March 8th, 2010 at 23:48:58

I make this all the time, to cool it faster, sit it the sink and fill it with cold water around the pot and stir, helps if you change the water a few times,,, tears my friends up. I use the everclear to make kahlua, you want to talk about a show stopper....... LMAO

By Stone on March 7th, 2010 at 18:33:52

Awesome drink, have my second batch on the stove right now. I use 8 cin sticks, 3.5 cups of sugar, 2 tsp of cardimom (apple pie seasoning)few dashes of vanilla extract and a bottle and 1/2 (750 ml ) of ever clear.. everyone loves it!

By Bocephus on March 7th, 2010 at 17:13:54

Ive never boiled it for 3 hours and it taste great everytime. I usually mix the apple juice, cider, and cinnoman sticks all at once. Then add the sugar once it starts to get close to boiling. Once he sugar boils out i add the everclear for about 10 minutes. Then i let it cool. You dont need the extra sticks unless you like supersweet drinks. Best if you let it sit for about 2 days.

By Mary on March 2nd, 2010 at 11:35:28

What is the shelf life?
Im also making some. So delicious!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

By Brianne on February 12th, 2010 at 18:29:27

how many shots will 1 batch make?

By KAT on February 3rd, 2010 at 09:44:57

Where do you all find Everclear at? In PA they will only sell it to pharmacies

By jb1118 on January 30th, 2010 at 13:25:20

2nd time making this. I take the cooked cinnamon sticks out and put new ones in the containers. I find this drink gets better with age and hides the alcohol better. I've let it sit for over a year and tastes awesome still.

By Katie on January 29th, 2010 at 23:54:35

Need to know if matters if you put the everclear in right after the 3 hrs of cooking without letting it cool!!?? Hope I didn't mess it up!! Do I need to add more??!!

By bartman on January 21st, 2010 at 19:03:47

whats the big deal.

Use clear apple cider and place a cinnamon stick in each mason jar for extra flavor

By Jen on January 14th, 2010 at 22:47:09

I'm making some right now. I only use apple juice, no cider, honey instead of sugar, cinnamon sticks, and cloves. If you boil it until the sticks lose flavor a lot of the juice evaporates and you get floaties from the cloves and sticks. Bring to a boil and let it stand for an hour or so then remove them. Tastes great and is always a party favorite!

By Rubyjem on January 6th, 2010 at 17:34:33

can you substatute anything else for the everclear?

By christian on January 5th, 2010 at 20:27:50

im making this to for the first time and was wondering how everything goes.so u boil everything except the everclear until the sticks lose flavor and then let get warm and add liquor and then jar. do u have to refridgerate.

By Joe on January 3rd, 2010 at 21:53:51

had this stuff on new years. i can hold my own with liquor but this stuff got to me fast! everyone enjoyed taking sips from my cup from time to time :) luckily, i knew when to stop myself before i got too out of hand (almost beat up a friend because he had an airsoft gun)

By Tina on December 31st, 2009 at 13:50:12

Making my first batch, drink it at the bar always very yummy, I am going to party with my friend Yummy. Hope it is as good as what I have been having.

By Dave on December 27th, 2009 at 08:36:43

Is the the one that tastes like apple pie right down to the crust with no hint of alcohol (which makes it dangerous and fun)?

By Tom on December 23rd, 2009 at 10:34:09

I have been making this recipe for years and it is great. Just remember to allow the everything to cool off till it is warm and not hot or the liquor will just boil off.

By The Dude on December 20th, 2009 at 17:27:54

I am making this drink myself for the first time... I have had it before and it is wonderfull!!! I am one who lives off instant gratification and this whole 3 hour boiling and cooling process before you add the alcohol is really killing me... But ITS WORTH IT!!!

By Casey on December 19th, 2009 at 10:37:17

Going to make this for my first time tonight. Thank you for all of your ideas. I am making mine with help from all of you. I am using 1 gal. juice, 1 gal. cider, 8 cinnimon sticks, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of red hots, 1 tbs. apple pie seasoning. 4 cups everclear. I am also incorporating the no boil and going to not let it heat over 200 degrees. I hope it turnes out great, I am bottling 6 Liters and giving them as gifts and keeping the rest for a good time.

By Ist timer on December 16th, 2009 at 13:47:53

what about adding a small amount of vanilla flavoring syrup? It contains sugar, water, and vanilla extract so I guess I wouldn't need to add more sugar then? Also, how much does it better the flavor to let it sit stored or refrigerated for days to months versus adding the alcohol as soon as it's cooled off?

By Alcohol Tech on December 14th, 2009 at 15:58:40

Any drink with this much alcohol will keep indefinately. The alcohol kills any microbials. Just keep it out of the sun, and away from heat because that will destroy the alcohol.

By hrhoades on December 9th, 2009 at 16:57:41

I am getting ready to make some for the first time. Tried it at the bar last winter and absolutely fell in love with the stuff. Thanks for all of the ingredient idea's. Wish me luck!!

By hrhoades on December 9th, 2009 at 16:56:00

I am having a friend bring me everclear on the 16th of this month and can't wait to make it. Had it at the bar last year and fell in love with it!!! thanks for all the good idea's, can't wait to try it!!

By Young on December 8th, 2009 at 16:25:38

Making my first batch tonight. Used 1 gallon of Motts apple juice and 1 gallon of Murrays Apple Cider. 8 Cinnamon sticks, 2 Tablespoons of apple pie seasoning. And 2 cups of light brown sugar. Hoping this turns out great. Wish me luck.

By JCB on November 24th, 2009 at 20:33:54

making some right now for the first time and cant wait to enjoy it.

By mfm on November 20th, 2009 at 12:44:58

we made this and mixed it with a white russian, it was awesome, like having apple pie with ice cream

By pam on November 19th, 2009 at 04:55:07

I am about to make it for the first time. the recipe i have calls for6 cans of frozen apple juice concentrate, 18 cups of water, 1 galon of apple cider, 750 ml everclear, 7 cinnamon sticks, 4 cups of white sugar, 4 cups brown sugar. take all ingredients EXCLUDING everclear and combine in large sauce pan. bring to boil and simmer for 45 minutes. remove from heat and allow to cool till room temp. add everclear, bottle and enjoy. makes 13 lilters

By Ryan on November 17th, 2009 at 11:36:01

"By Nick on August 13th, 2008 at 12:44:31
Drink till you get the warm feeling, then call it quits."

Haha I wish I would have taken your advice. Apple pie plus late night walk equals walking across monkey bars, then falling off, and throwing myself into a pine tree to get flung back. So much fun.

By Rich on November 16th, 2009 at 11:24:59

How do you store it?

By JJ on November 15th, 2009 at 14:03:29

Great Drink!!

By Debbie on November 11th, 2009 at 16:25:33

Made this recipe before and cut sugar in half.It's awesome but will kick your a-- if you're not careful! Liked the other ideas I read and am gonna try a few different things. Store mine in washed out wine bottles. Great as gifts for the holidays,but,always save some for myself(lol)! All my friends love it!!!

By Bunk on November 11th, 2009 at 16:04:00

Make this for every hunting season...Makes for a good pick me up in the morning and a good put me down for the evening. The ideas with vanilla vodka or schnapps and the butterscotch are great. Going to try them for this season.

By MsEyerish on November 11th, 2009 at 13:30:36

Had it at nascar earlier this year....was a huge hit, everyone loved it! going to try it out tonight...

By Tassy on November 8th, 2009 at 18:02:14

I use 1 cup of honey in place of the sugar.

By IvoryAngel on November 6th, 2009 at 20:34:39

When I make this I use cinnamon redhots (found in the candy isle at the grocery store) instead of the sugar.I use 2-3 cups of redhots in place of the sugar. It gives more cinnamon taste and sweetens it at the same time. The redhots will melt completely when you boil it. Very good and a big hit at every event.

By Rae on November 4th, 2009 at 15:52:14

Made this years ago for jugs at black powder meets, had forgotten receipt. Didn't use sugar. Seems like we put ginger something in it. Does anyone remember?

By mike on November 3rd, 2009 at 11:16:12

I made this several months ago, and everybody that tries it likes it! Making more this weekend!

By Jess on October 31st, 2009 at 14:56:59

Mmmmm...I just made my first batch for a Halloween party tonight. Very tasty and sure to be a crowd pleaser :)

By travis on October 31st, 2009 at 13:28:11

you do not need to add any sugar. apple juice and cider is already very sweet. you can also use a half gallon of vodka in place of 1 quart of everclear. trust me don't add any sugar

By Jen on October 31st, 2009 at 11:34:37

Wish I would have read these comments prior to making it! I would have used less sugar and made it a couple days in advanced at least. Oh well, I am sure it will end up great! In the past I have made this and I have always made it with Spiced Rum instead, I think I am going to try the Everclear this time tho!

By Roger on October 28th, 2009 at 23:02:21

This is my shit hands down for any winter occasion

By JG on October 28th, 2009 at 21:07:19

Few mods needed trust me! Be sure to use premium cider and apple juice dont skimp, also use 8 cinnamon sticks, the other key component is letting this stuff minus the alcohol set in the fridge for 2 days before adding a fifth a 750 ml of everclear. Perfection.

By Jake on October 27th, 2009 at 15:50:26

I used this recipe last year for halloween. Everyone loved it. I couldn't remember how to make it this year, so I found a recipe for it on another site. I think I made a mistake with the other website. This recipe reigns supreme!!

By WickedMainea on October 27th, 2009 at 08:11:19

very good stuff!! I go 1gal of fresh apple cider, .5gal motts natural fresh pressed apple juice. 2 cups sugar. (1 light and 1 dark) and cinn sticks. boil. let cool. add 190 everclear. I use a litter. way more kick!! :) And I cann the stuff in quart mason jars. be fresh forever!!

By Tina on October 26th, 2009 at 16:55:00

Don't forget to let cool and add booze when away from the stove.......

By craig on October 26th, 2009 at 15:00:46

i'm a fan of letting this drink age after you make it, but does it change much from boiling it or can you simply mix ingredients? -don't have access to a large enough pot for on stove..

By ashNmick on October 26th, 2009 at 11:18:55

Yummy, My husband and I are making our first batch tonight and I absolutely cannot wait!!! We wont have much storage time on it though because we are bringing it with us next weekend to Columbus, OH to share with our friends...but I will try next time to store it longer and see what happens!!! thanks for all the advice!!!

By Brandon on October 24th, 2009 at 18:44:01

I say dont boil the juice and cider all the way. I use a candy thermometer and get the temp to 200 degrees right before boiling. And I believe you can use just cider but you wont want to heat very long or you will end up with white chunks in the cider. I also use 1 table spoon apple pie spice for extra flavor. Dont forget to strain through a cheese cloth or I use a clean white t-shirt to get the rest of the seasoning out.

By ben on October 23rd, 2009 at 00:33:37

Does anyone make it with apples or put apple pieces into the jars?

By alan on October 21st, 2009 at 13:22:14

try adding a shot of peach schnaupps to this when you have a glass on ice yummy!!

By Ami on October 21st, 2009 at 10:26:08

I have access to massive amounts of cider. Can it be made with only cider and no juice? If so do I just use the same amount of cider as the juice I will be replacing? Why use apple juice at all?

By judy on October 21st, 2009 at 06:00:08

Followed the instructions for the drink the 1st time, 2nd time I made it, I sliced (very thin) up granny smith apples and added it to the mixture while it was heating up...most of the apples dissolved, took out the pieces that did not. got great reviews with second batch. I was making the drink for a party...used a a 5 gal water jug, that they is use on the water dispersers that are in offices. It was almost filled to the top.

By neil on October 20th, 2009 at 18:53:49

you can still buy good everclear in wiscosin.

By Hunter on October 14th, 2009 at 21:01:14

Try heating the cider and juice to 150 degrees w/half the sugar and let cool to 100 degrees. Then add white liquor, stir and place in pint mason jars. Add a stick of cinnamon stick to each jar. Place lids on jars and let chill for 5 days or until sticks have completely dissolved. This allows for an equal amount of cinnamon in each drink! Enjoy!!

By Gypsii on October 12th, 2009 at 18:52:16

I like to go about half's on the sugar- since the cider and juice already have a ton. Also, if you add about a shot of any spiced rum to it, yum. It adds a bit of a kick to the end. Yummy! Oh, and to know when the stick lose flavor, they will start to sink to the bottom.

By Chelle on October 9th, 2009 at 08:35:55

Was wondering how long to boil the juice, cider, sugar and cinn sticks. I have no clue what cinn sticks taste like after they have lost their flavor. Lol, wanting to make for first time tonight, help soon please.

Thanks ppls

By jason on October 8th, 2009 at 21:02:31

since everclear is hard to get anymore, i make mine with vodka. tastes pretty darn good! I have also added moonshine to mine and it adds good flavor, and a special kick at the end! :p

By boogienights on October 5th, 2009 at 17:58:27

add a bottle of mr boston butterscotch schnapps and it will taste like caramel apple suckers pretty good. no extra sugar or juice just add to taste

By Odie on October 4th, 2009 at 19:42:07

Had this drink for the first time this weekend around a fire. It is the perfect autumn drink, cold or warm. Yummy, I will now be making it for family and friends to enjoy.

By hayden on October 2nd, 2009 at 10:30:14

it guuna be a long night just made 5x the recipe. thanks for all the input!

By Rick on September 30th, 2009 at 16:34:46

This is a great drink but its better if you add less sugar and a pint of vanilla vodka.
I call that Apple Pie Ala Mode.

By Mama on September 30th, 2009 at 13:19:54

This recipe is also fab if you use 3 cups of Everclear, 1 cup of vanilla schnapps (Dr. McGillicuddy's is good), and 1/2 cup of green apple pucker. Also we swapped 2 cups of the white sugar with light brown.

Fantastic. Won the contest. :)

By dARCI on September 29th, 2009 at 18:54:20


By bill on September 27th, 2009 at 17:28:39

i had this drink at a party.it was amazing,how far do u boil the ap ple cider.it says till the cinnoman sticks lose flavor.when is that.

By rbarxr on September 25th, 2009 at 13:00:29

making my first batch tonight, wish me luck

By Stefani on September 23rd, 2009 at 16:01:56

I drink this stuff only a couple times a year and it's the best drink that i know. but less sugar is better and tastes better slushy.

By Donna on September 23rd, 2009 at 13:23:19

This tastes so much like apple pie you want to add a scope of ice cream for pie ala mode

By silverman on September 23rd, 2009 at 06:23:54

Can you use Vodka instead of Everclear? Would it make a difference?

By sam on September 20th, 2009 at 17:59:48

Can you make this short notice?!

By poocherone on September 14th, 2009 at 11:20:40

oh damn

By Debbbie on September 12th, 2009 at 21:20:56

I've have tried many different kinds of shots and this is the best one I've ever had and not hard to make. Although I agree with many others, cut back on the sugar.I'll be giving bottles of this out for Christmas to quite a few friends. They all love it too!

By Maddy on September 9th, 2009 at 21:51:13

Cherry pie with whole cherries is just as great!!!!

By Phoenix on September 5th, 2009 at 06:33:19

been drinkin this for years at the bar now i have no need to go up there ne more. lol poor bartender

By Julz on August 31st, 2009 at 07:45:12

I like it warm on a fall evening by the fire.

By mountain gem on August 24th, 2009 at 18:55:16

This drink just gets better with age; it also has a HUGE kick. Doesn't need to be refrigerated; keeps best in a cool, dark place (hide it in the closet). I use a mix of unfiltered apple juice and apple cider and no sugar but I might try some brown sugar or honey for a change. I like to add some whole cloves, allspice and a cardamon bud to mine. Remember to let it cool before adding the Everclear.

By rick on August 23rd, 2009 at 17:10:41

Someone made cherry pie but trying to find the recipe. Anyone?

By Jay on August 15th, 2009 at 18:02:36

Really good frozen as slush. Use only about 1 cup or less of brown sugar.

By sunuvdac on August 14th, 2009 at 06:29:49

I make this stuff myself now, but one change I would make to it is to only use 2 cups of sugar. To make a larger batch, use the same amount of apple juice and cider but 1.5 bottles of everclear and 3 cups of sugar...EXCELLENT

By fish4tales on August 9th, 2009 at 07:25:06

Heard about it at work, buddy gave me a sample (2oz). Just like the name "apple pie". WOW, now I make my own. 190 proof Oregon Liquor Store. Bee careful, you just can't say "NO"

By Trevor on August 5th, 2009 at 12:10:02

Someone made this at a party and it was AmAzInG!!!
Just three shots and I was tipsy. It gives quite the hangover. Is this version that potent?

By Mike on August 3rd, 2009 at 14:50:58

My bud whiped up a batch about amonth ago and it was soo good he started playing with my toes.......

By gfdg on August 1st, 2009 at 14:08:42

By Murry on July 15th, 2009 at 08:19:48

hello, i tasted the drink a few months ago it is GREAT! what's even better now i finally found the recipe for it. (don't have to wait for my friend to make it )

By wood on July 7th, 2009 at 20:12:37

yep, my buddy makes it and it just makes you want to light the bon fire

By Deb on June 29th, 2009 at 17:41:49

WOW!! No need for dessert at the dinner table any more! We love it and have our Christmas shopping finished...of course only for the over 21 family and friends. GREAT STUFF!!!

By Alex on June 21st, 2009 at 14:08:47

Good drink just a little too sweet. I used 3 cups of sugar last time so next time I'll only use 1 cup.

By tom_clip on June 16th, 2009 at 07:24:57

this drink is awesome, but a little sweet. I tried it without sugar and it still was good. i will try half the sugar and see how that tastes next time. two 1/4 batchs in two days. oh so good!

By Ben on June 9th, 2009 at 00:51:22

We dont boil ours...we mix it all up and toss it in a dark closet for 6 months. Thats the big secret. Im as well drinking a glass thats over 18 months old and its delicious.

By dejakamo on June 5th, 2009 at 12:38:28

this is the most epic thing i have ever consumed in my life. it takes about one hour of simmering for the cin sticks to loose flavor. so take your time and enjoy

By Jiimy D on June 2nd, 2009 at 10:52:37

Made with a quart of shine, 1/2 gal juice, 1/2 gal cider, 1 1/2 cups sugar, and 4 cinnamon discs candy. It's a real but kicker.

By Rosie on May 25th, 2009 at 15:36:17

This Drink is F*kn awesome!!!!

By dan on May 15th, 2009 at 15:45:47

it's even better when made with moonshine, so i've heard ;)

By Brenda on May 15th, 2009 at 08:02:58

Do you use apple cider vinegar?

By riles on May 10th, 2009 at 13:14:02

got some at a tailgate of a brewer game in milwaukee last night -unreal. cant wait to make my first batch

By ryan on April 16th, 2009 at 16:52:03

One of the best drinks I have ever had. Have made about 12 gallons of it in the last few months. My friends are obbsessed with it. Had to start charging for it. Use goldenbrown sugar will give it a little bit different apperance and taste. Yummy

By Sadies on April 15th, 2009 at 13:54:05

This is the best drink ever

By Tracy!!! on April 12th, 2009 at 16:30:30

this drink is delicious, had it yesterday at a barn party, kept sneaking in sips all night :)

By Lesley on March 30th, 2009 at 12:53:24

We make this for "Rockfest" and special occasions and its the Best!

By Doug on February 6th, 2009 at 18:31:24

This is a pretty good drink. I am going to have to say my buddies dad makes it the best. FO SHO!

By Puking Jacko on January 29th, 2009 at 01:14:32

I have to say this is a very good drink and if you are not an alcoholic like i am then do not drink more then a few swigs. I drink 1-2 bottles of it per day and make it just how it says.

By Mando on January 26th, 2009 at 01:09:40

Had this drink for the first time a year ago at a bar...the name of it explains it all! Tastes almost like a apple pie! Tastes great and does the trick!! Highly recommend it!

By Presto Chango on January 25th, 2009 at 17:20:02

Can you store it in a empty milk jug ?

By Annie on January 16th, 2009 at 16:51:53

This is like OMG, the best drink. Its so good. We went through 3 bottles in about an hour. There were 7 of us though.

By nastygurl on December 30th, 2008 at 12:08:12

Lost my v card with this drink, just wish i could remember it.

By Mike on December 29th, 2008 at 10:09:11

Gave a bottle of apple pie to a shirt-tail relative about 10 years ago. Saw him this Christmas. He'd forgotten he had the stuff in storage. Unrefrigerated. He pulled it out a couple of months ago and shared it with a friend. Said it was great.

By Jake08 on December 26th, 2008 at 17:52:46

Try it with one cup of sugar, it's a little too sweet.

By yo momma on December 22nd, 2008 at 18:29:42

awesome drink, my boyfriend loves it too, i made him 2 gallons of it for christmas

By Hethwin on December 21st, 2008 at 11:00:43

****By Jane on October 29th, 2008 at 07:31:35

How long can you keep this drink in the fridge? ****

I've had a bottle in the fridge for over a year. Pulled it out for a Christmas party a couple of weeks ago and it still tastes great. And no ill effects. :-)

By Britt on December 15th, 2008 at 16:25:12

I have had many of late nite with this delicious concoction. and the ladies love it.

By Jeff on December 1st, 2008 at 17:23:37

This is very good but remember to let it cool before adding the everclear or you boil out the alcohol. Still VERY GOOD.

By jo on November 21st, 2008 at 15:23:53

love it

By Jane on October 29th, 2008 at 07:31:35

How long can you keep this drink in the fridge?

By Breezy on October 19th, 2008 at 15:32:29

It catches up with you, but even coming back up its delcious

By JUSTiNE on October 5th, 2008 at 03:35:22


By Anna on October 4th, 2008 at 14:07:57

This is awesome, but too much is definitely not good, says the girl with the hangover :-)

By apple pie on October 2nd, 2008 at 15:58:46
