"This tastes just like apple pie! Great in the autumn around a campfire or on a hay-ride. Put it in canning jars with rings and lids for that down-home country appeal." — Cathy

6 (3 inch)
1 1/2 cups
white sugar, or to taste
1 (1 liter) bottle
190 proof grain alcohol (such as Everclear™)
make sure your juice is COLD - below room temp- to avoid evaporating the alchohol
I really did not care for this drink recipe. I used Everclear, and all I could taste (and smell) was the grain alcohol. I'm not sure what I could have tweaked to make the recipe more palatable. I served it to about 20 people, and it received mixed reviews, so perhaps it is just a matter of preference.
I tried this drink years ago while on vacation with friends and I had to have the recipe. I've made it several times and have only one suggestion. When transfering to bottles or jars, use a new knee high nylon over a hand strainer to help cut down on the "pulp". You will have to rinse it often. Oh, also, try warming it up in the microwave. Thats the only way i drink it. :)
This was very good, and fragrant. Recieved compliments. Served in a crock pot and set the everclear on the side for people to choose to use it or not. Next time, take the cinnamon sticks out afterboiling, and put into cups. That way the presentation is still beautiful, but the whole bowl isn't too cinnamon-y.
I have had this EXACT recipe for years and always have a steady supply in the fridge once deer hunting season comes around. We ARE deer camp. my tips--- SIMMER for 2-3 hours!!! put as much back in the gallon jugs after its finished. very easy to store in fridge and then just a screw cap on it. BUT make it a week or two ahead of time! then put 3 sticks in each gallon jugs and let it sit in the fridge- every couple days shake them up. this way you wont even taste the everclear- if you make it right you wont even know it has alcohol in it. the longer it sits the less alcohol you wil taste. as i dont like hard alcohol i make it early so i can celebrate a downed deer with my husband and all his friends! OH- and make SURE you have a big funnel-- that two bucks at walmart will prevent you from moping a huge mess up in the kitchen. good luck and enjoy!!
this was very good, we gave it to our friends for the holidays. I let the juices simmer for an hour so the liquid would reduce. It worked out great. thanks
Made this will apples from the tree outback - - one word - - AWESOME!! Wish I'd have made more while the apples were ripe - down to one little mason jar left and trying to make it last all winter isn't gonna work.
I've had this before, but never made it. This was so easy and soooo good! Taking it on a canoe trip as well as keeping some for weekend campfires! Besides cin stix, I added several dashes of ground cinnamon & a little nutmeg, as well as followed someone elses suggestion to added a little vanilla after it cools... all I can say is FABULOUS!!
