I love this. I made it and put it into mason jars for gifts. I did add a sprinkle of brown sugar. Also we are unable to purchase Everclear in PA. So I substituted vodka. Turned out fine
Wow!!! This is fabulous! Made it for the Super Bowl after reading the reviews. I love Wood Chuck Cider and thought I might like this too. Having over ice as I watch the game. Thanks for the recipe! Now only if my team can get it together....
I was hesitant to try this but inexpensive to make, easy and large quantity for gifts and my budget needed the help! When I tasted it...i was throroughly impressed! In fact I just bought the ingrediants to make a second batch and haven't even handed out the first one yet! I did strain it several times through coffee filters for a very clear liqueur and poured it in clean decorative bottles (from thrift stores and bought new corks) for very elegant gifts. The second batch will go in small mason jars with a homespun moonshine feel to it...has the kick without the bite! And this time I'm keeping a big bottle of it for home! Highly recommend this!!!!! * Its now March and I still am getting requests to make more or to share the recipe, THANK YOU!
This was definitely a hit with my friends! I was tempted to add some nutmeg and a little brown sugar, but I stuck to the recipe for my first attempt at this. It is really, really good!
Fantastic recipe!!!!! I recommend using organic unfiltered apple juice and organic unfiltered apple cider for the recipe. It gives it a cloudy, murky look instead of being clear, but the particles of apple in the juice and the cinnamon sticks enhance the alcohol tremendously! I made a batch in October and the last of it was consumed at a New Years party, with orders for more from many friends and party-goers! Better than having to manufacture a still, too.
I made this to take to my parents camping trip, my cousin's showed up and they all loved it. I was emailing out the recipe when I got back home. This is awesome and it goes so smooth so be very careful.. I always have it on hand. I put it in the crockpot on low for the holidays to warm it a bit. Everyone goes crazy over it. Thank you for this wonderful recipe..
WOW!!! This is absolutely amazing! This would be good enough to give out as gifts but you won't want to part with it! I got 4 1 liter bottles and 1 1.75 liter bottles full! With a little bit leftover. My Dad told me at the bar by his cabin they sell this stuff at $3 a shot! The flavor is rich and comforting and be careful this does pack a punch, but is SO worht feeling KO'ed in the morning! :)
Wow! Wussed out & made a 1/2 batch using a pint (375 mL) Ever Clear - WHOOOEEE! Sipping this made my knee stop hurting ! This is smooooth & delicous - drink judiciously. Thanks for a great recipe for fall & winter sipping Chicagopm! Will definitely be using this for winter surf fishing (When walking across the street - no driving!)
We make this to have at fall bonfires when it's chilly. It really does taste like apple pie!!
I made this during the holidays and it went VERY fast! It tastes great on the rocks and was very inexpensive to make. Less than $25 for a HUGE batch. Thanks for sharing!
