Alcohol Infused Apple Pie Drink Recipe
What's in this article...
I’ve been making this fantastic drink for the last few years. With help of friends and a lot of experimenting I have perfected this recipe. Apple Pie is an alcoholic drink mixed with Everclear, however due to the way Everclear is you barely can taste the alcohol.
It can be served hot or cold depending on the temperature outside. It warms you up great and the taste is to die for.
The first thing you need to do when you are going to make this apple pie recipe is to gather all of the needed ingredients.
The list is as follows:
- 1 Gallon of Indian Summer Apple Juice (If not available pick something that isn’t motts or an off brand)
- 1 Gallon of Indian Apple Cider
- 8 Cinnamon 6″ Sticks
- 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract
- 1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon
- 2 Cups of Brown Sugar
- 1 Cup of Sugar
- 1 Liter of Everclear (If Everclear is unavailable in your state you can use 151 just add half a liter more to the recipe)
- 4 Fresh Apples (Honey Crisp, Granny Smith, Sweetango)
- 24 16oz Mason Jars (2 Packs of 12)
- 1 Sharpie
Time To Brew:
Step 1: In a large pot (large enough to hold about 2 1/2 gallons of liquid) pour in the gallon of apple juice, the gallon of apple cider, brown sugar, white sugar, and the cinnamon sticks.
Step 2: Bring the pot to a rolling boil on high heat. Stir until all of the sugar has dissolved itself into the liquid.
Step 3: Remove the pot from the burner and let it cool down. While cooling down add in the 1 Tablespoon of Vanilla Extract and the 1 Tablespoon of Cinnamon and stir it a few times. Put a lid on the pot and let it cool for about 2 hours. It needs to be luke warm! Not HOT before you can continue to the next step.
Step 4: Pour in the Everclear or 151. If the liquid mixture inside the pot is still HOT the Everclear will evaporate. Make sure it is is only luke warm before pouring this in. Otherwise you will have non-alcoholic Apple Pie!
Step 5: Using a ladle take the liquid from the now cooled down pot and pour it into the mason jars. Fill them 3/4 full. Once all of the jars are filled cut up the 4 Apples into slices (you can use an apple cutter for this part) put a slice of the apple into the jar and then seal with the lid.
Step 6: Refrigerate if wanting to drink cold or heat for 2 minutes in the microwave for a hot apple pie drink. The Apple Pie Drink stays good for over a year if canned and sealed properly. Take a sharpie marker and write the date that you sealed the jars on the lid so you know whether it’s still good.

Drink Up & Enjoy!
The Apple Pie Drink is great for crisp fall days, cold winter nights, or as a cool off drink in the summer. Wrap bows and lace on them and give them as Christmas gifts. I know lots of people who absolutely love getting these as gifts. You can also check out our list of the best mixed drinks here.
Each Apple Pie Drink is the equivalent to about 2 shots of regular alcohol so drink responsibly.
