Servings 2 drinks


  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 ounces apple pie moonshine


  • In a saucepan, heat the apple cider and cinnamon stick together until warm.
  • Pour moonshine to a serving glass and top with the warm apple cider.
  • Garnish with cinnamon stick, and enjoy!


This recipe is pretty sweet (to my taste) so it makes a really nice sipping drink.  If you want yours less sweet, then I'd recommend halving the cider to 4 ounces, and replacing the remaining 4 ounces with water.   That way you get most of the flavor, but not all of the sugar.
