Apple....Pied



Apple Pie Hootch at its best...wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Please be careful with this concoction, it is hard to taste the alcohol. So, you don't know you're tipsy, til you stand up and fall down.

~64 oz. apple cider (I couldn't find apple cider, so I purchased the Mott's Natural Fresh Pressed apple juice that is pressed from apples with the pulp)
~2 individual packages of Spiced Cider mix (If you have some lovely apple cider, you can skip this ingredient)
~3/4 c. dark brown sugar
~3 large cinnamon sticks
~3 cloves
~2 dashes of powdered cinnamon
~1 dash of nutmeg
~pinch of ginger

Heat this mixture up to a boil, then cover and turn heat down to simmer for about 30-45 minutes. Cool completely!!!! This is very important, because I really don't want you to have an apple pie scented inferno.
Add:
~1 1/2 - 2 c. 100-180 proof grain alcohol. (depending on how hootchy you want your pie) :D

I used 1 1/2 c. of 100 proof vodka. But, really this part is up to your discretion and discriminating hootch tastes.

Bottle...enjoy!
