Apple Pie Moonshine

Four years ago, pre-kids, I found myself in a log cabin with family in Keystone, Colorado. We were spending a few days skiing and just enjoying some good quality family time. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m not a “great skier” and sometimes the thought of falling truly terrifies me to no end. After a couple of good runs, I started to get a little cocky and felt comfortable as we got further into the day. I was heading down the mountain at a relatively good speed and hit a patch of ice near the bottom. I’m not sure how many times I tumbled on the flat surface but I do know that it knocked the breath out of me.

Bystanders came to my aid but I quickly waved them off letting them know I would be OK. By the time my husband reached me I was bawling and told him that I hurt so bad on my back end. I decided at this moment that I was officially done skiing on the trip and I took the gondola back down the mountain.

That evening I was in EXTREME pain from that fall. Luckily, my sister in law had brought a batch of homemade apple pie moonshine along for the trip. After a quick walk to the local hot tub, I was in heaven with an unlimited supply of apple pie moonshine at my disposal and bubbling hot water to help with my aches.

I don’t think I felt any more pain the rest of the night. Now the next morning is a different story.

  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. 🙂
