Slow Cooker Apple Pie Moonshine

In my husbands family this recipe forCrock-Pot Apple Pie Moonshine is a traditional Christmas Eve beverage. My husbands grandfather has made this mixed drink, or flavored beverage, for years and all the men in the family sit and gather in the basem*nt laughing, telling jokes and sipping on this drink.

It is also given as gifts to all the adults in the family so that we all can sip and savor it all year long.

Once the jars are open you can keep this drink in the refrigerator to drink cold (I think it tastes better cold) and will last all year long (or longer).

Please remember that this is a strong alcoholic adult beverage and it goes without saying that you should keep it away from children and of course, drink responsibly.

Our family uses Everclear which is 195 proof (95% alcohol) which means it is STRONG. Everclear is not always available everywhere, so if you cannot find it at your local liquor store then feel free to use another strong proof alcohol such as vodka.

This recipe makes about 105 shot sized servings. And are these Mason Jar Shot Glasses are PERFECT for serving in!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is this recipe really moonshine?

Because you are not distilling moonshine in your slow cooker this recipe is not true moonshine. Instead you are flavoring a strong distilled spirit to make a highly alcoholic flavored co*cktail.

If I cannot buy Everclear where I live what I can I use instead?

In some states in the US and some countries Everclear is not available. If you do not have access to moonshine or Everclear then we suggest using a high proof vodka.

How long can I store this apple pie moonshine?

When stores in a dark cool place this apple pie moonshine will store for many years. The high alcohol content makes it hard to spoil. You will drink it before it goes bad.
