This Friday, KF and Dad are headed for their Indian Princess overnight. There are about 40 girls/Dads going from our tribe and it looks like a lot of fun. Saturday night, after the kids turn in, the dads grill up some steaks and bring out the firewater. So, I am making apple moonshine to send along. I am guessing that I won't find grain alcohol here in town.
1/2 gallon apple juice
1/2 gallon apple cider
4 cinnamon sticks
1 cracked nutmeg (optional)
8 allspice berries (optional)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 gallon Everclear Grain Alcohol (190 proof)
or Vodka (if you have to)
In a large stock pot (1 1/2 gallons or bigger) combine juice, cider, cinnamon, nutmeg, berries and both sugars.
Cook on high until sugar dissolves.
Allow to cool then remove cinnamon sticks, nutmeg and allspice berries.
