We’re gettin’ all sorts of lit up in here over the start of apple season. And we’re gettin’ lit up over moonshine. Yes the two of them do, in fact, go hand in hand – because today I’m sharing my recipe for bad decisions and apple pie moonshine over at Baked by Rachel’s for her Apple a Day Party. Last year I rang in the new crops with Bourbon Apple Butter, and this year it’s Apple Pie ‘Shine all the way.
Clearly apples and booze go hand in hand. You can feel like a regular ol’ shiner with this recipe. And as always – it’s best sipped from your trusty mason jar. Pop on over and check out this recipe – it doesn’t take any time at all and you’ll be sipping the sweet stuff before you know it.
