Okay, the last two Fridays have featured some yummy, but non-alcoholic recipes. It’s time to jump off the wagon and give you folks another delicious alcoholic beverage. And this one includes grain alcohol. Now don’t be frightened…it’s diluted, well sort of.
With the Olympics going on and all, what’s more American than apple pie? Well, how about Apple Pie Shots? This is a recipe you make ahead of time and will last for several months in your refrigerator.
Let’s take a look at the culprits:
We have one gallon of apple cider, one half gallon of apple juice, ten cinnamon sticks, 2 ¾ cups of sugar and 3 ½ cups of Everclear (grain alcohol).
First pour one gallon of apple cider into a large pot.
Next add one half gallon of apple juice.
Put ten sticks of cinnamon in pot.
Place on stovetop and bring to a boil. Boil for 15 minutes.
After fifteen minutes, turn off heat and add 2 ¾ cups of sugar and stir.
Let cool completely, remove cinnamon sticks and add 3 ½ cups of Everclear (grain alcohol).
Have ready enough glass bottles for approximately one and a half gallons.
Distribute amongst several bottles.
Keep chilled in refrigerator. Shake before serving and enjoy.

So now that you have some apple pie, you just need Baseball, hot dogs, and Chevrolet. Okay, if you got that, you’re old like me!
Note: Because this drink does contain grain alcohol, it is meant to be sipped and not chugged, slammed, gulped...you get my drift.
