Why hello….

Apple Pie Moonshine - azestybite.com

Is it possible to be so in love with a drink.  This isn’t just any drink!  My glass is filled with yummy goodness that tastes just like an apple pie.

YES!  An apple pie moonshine drink in my hand at the moment.  The first time I ever tried it was when we went skiing in Colorado a couple weeks ago.  Everyone left to go hit the mountain and I escaped to the kitchen to try out this alcoholic drink that I had heard so much about.

It was around 11am in the morning.  What can I say I was bored and everyone else was having fun skiing and I was stuck inside trying to relieve some pain.  Boy oh boy did this drink succeed in everything that I wanted it to be and more.  I asked my soon to be sister in law (that’s a mouthful) for the recipe.  Complete shock came over me when I found out that everclear was included in this concoction.  I have never been a big fan of it and I certainly didn’t think it was in this beverage.  WHO CARES!!! I love this drink so much!

  6. OMG!!! I’m so excited to find this! I bought some apple pie moonshine a couple months ago while visiting family, and sadly, I cannot find it where I live. And literally, as I type this, I’m drinking the last glass of it, and was about to cry until I happened upon your recipe. This is so awesome!! Now I can make it at home!

    Did you know there’s also a caramel moonshine? A bit much to drink, but would make the most incredible sauce to drizzle over ice cream. 🙂
