  • 8 cups apple juice
  • 8 cups apple cider
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 5 sticks cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg ground
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 3 cups Everclear


  • Add the apple cider, apple juice, sugars, and all of the spices into a large pot. 
  • Let this mixture simmer for 1 hour.
  • Turn off the heat and let it come to room temperature for another 30 minutes. 
  • Remove cinnamon sticks and pour the mixture into a large bowl with a spout. 
  • Add in the Everclear and stir. 
  • Pour the moonshine into glass jars and seal with a lid until ready to serve. 


Since everyone has a different standard of how strong a drink is, it's best to start with less alcohol in a recipe and then slowly add more as you taste. Start with two cups and see what you think! 
You can always add more, but can't take it out once it's in the cider mixture.
You can also use vodka for this recipe but Everclear is more traditional for moonshine.
