Lazy Post...

…and a repost.

I check my Stat Counter on occasion and the one thing I see over and over again is people looking for the recipe for Apple Pie Shots. Now I’m cheap frugal so I take what I can get from my counter without paying, which is 500 entries. As you can see below over 46% of the recent searches has brought someone to my blog via a search for an Apple Pie Shot recipe. I get some other ‘play’, but most of it is varied searches for this recipe.

On a side, I happened to check said counter around New Year’s and let me tell you, people wanted this recipe. I had well over a hundred hits on New Year’s Eve alone.

Without further ado, the recipe again.

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.

Apple Pie Shots
1 Gallon Apple Cider
½ Gallon Apple Juice
10 Cinnamon Sticks
2 ¾ Cups Sugar
3 ½ Cups Everclear (Grain Alcohol)

Combine first three ingredients in large pot and boil for 15 minutes.
Remove from heat and stir in 2 ¾ cups of sugar.
Let cool completely. Remove cinnamon sticks and add 3 ½ cups of Everclear.
Pour into glass bottles and store in refrigerator.
Shake before serving.

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, get my drift.

That sounds damn good, but I'd be the only one in the house drinking it.
