A Facebook reader June R.S shared her recipe:
Cinnamon sticks, if you have a section of your local grocery that caters to Mexican foods, I’m talking labels that are not in English part of the store… go down the isle and they typically have cinnamon sticks in a bag for WAY less than you’ll find it in the seasoning isle.
I’ve made the recipe with brown sugar and white sugar and I have no preference, just do it to taste. I have also been known to add a hand full of red hots candy to the mix and it’s a nice addition as well.
My recipe is a little friendly in that you have containers to put the stuff in after!
1 750ml bottle of Everclear (you can also use Captain Morgan–Captain gives it a spiced apple pie flavor)
1 gallon of apple juice
1 gallon of apple cider
3-5 cinnamon sticks
1-2 cups of sugar.
Simmer the apple cider, apple juice and cinnamon sticks. We usually simmer for a minimum of an hour, but we’ve also gone as little as 20 minutes. Remove from heat, remove your cinnamon sticks and add your sugar. Adding sugar now helps it melt into the warm yummy appleness. When cool add your alcohol. If you’re adding in the red hots do it when you add your sugar so they melt as well.
Remember, this is a pretty high alcohol content… and this is the kind of drink that tastes so very yummy that you do not notice the alcohol all that much… it will sneak up on you and you’ll be intoxicated before you even realize it. I would say drink responsibly.
