Ingredients for Pumpkin Pie Moonshine
- 1 can pumpkin
- 6 cinnamon sticks
- 3 t ground ginger
- 1t nutmeg
- 2 1/2 cups brown sugar
- 1/2 t ground cloves
- 2 t vanilla
- 1 gallon of apple cider
- 2 cups moonshine or everclear liquor
- a cup of vodka
Prep time 5 min
Cooking time: 30 minutes
In a large pot, mix up all of your spices and ingredients except for the alcohol, the moonshine and vodka. Bring to a boil and then turn to medium heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Allow to cool, and you can put it in the fridge to speed that up. Add the alcohol to this mixture, but sample as you go to make sure you are not putting too much. Less can be used, if you prefer.
Now, fill some mason jars with this mix. Put them in the fridge. You are welcome to sample some now and every day for two weeks, but after about two weeks, this moonshine will be in its prime. Mix up a bid ol batch of this to keep on hand for holiday gifts. We think some cute handmade labels with a cinnamon stick tied on with bakers twine would top these jars off perfectly.
