I was introduced to this cocktail a few years back at a friends college graduation party.  I really enjoyed the drink as it really does taste exactly like apple pie.  Since that party I have tried to make the apple pie cocktail several times  but until recently was unable to recreate that true apple pie flavor.  In trying to recreate the flavor I tested a lot of the different variations of the cocktail and have selected and combined the ingredients that I feel make the best tasting version of the apple pie cocktail for this Instructable, enjoy!!

In this instructable you'll learn my technique for making an apple pie cocktail as well as how to make a cool serving glass from an apple that will surely impress whoever may be lucky enough to enjoy this cocktail with you.

Step 1: Ingredients and Materials

  • 3 Cinnamon Sticks
  • 1 tsp of Cloves
  • 1 tsp of Allspice
  • 1/2 Gallon Sweetened Apple Cider
  • 1/2 Gallon Sweetened Apply Juice
  • 1/4 Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup White Sugar
  • 1/2 Cup Ever Clear Grain Alcohol

Note on Sweetness: These ingredients makes for a very sweet cocktail.  If you'd prefer to cut the sweetness you can withhold the white sugar and/or you can choose to use unsweetened apple cider and/or apple juice.  In any case I would not remove the brown sugar as it adds to the apple pie flavor quite a bit.
Note on Alcohol Content: A lot of the recipes I researched when making this cocktail called for considerably more alcohol to be used.  I have found that 1/2 Cup of Ever Clear is plenty and adding any more distracts from the apple pie flavor of the drink as you are very aware of the strong taste and smell of the alcohol.

  • Range Top
  • Large Pot
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Liquid Measuring Cup
  • Funnel
  • Coffee Filter
  • 3 or 4 Mason Jars with Lids

The materials and tools for making the Apple Cup can be found on Step 5.
