Apple Pie Liqueur

This is delicious.  It's liquid candy with a punch.  I highly recommend it.  Goes well with campfires, holiday parties, and great friends.

Apple Pie Liqueur

1 gallon apple juice (I used 3 cans frozen with 15 cans of water)
1 gallon apple cider
4 cups brown sugar
4 cinnamon sticks
2 tablespoons of allspice berries
4/5 whole cloves
1 teaspoon fresh grated nutmeg
juice of one fresh orange
A fifth (750 ml) Everclear
1/2 fifth (350 ml) Spiced Rum

Place all ingredients except the everclear into a pot and bring to a boil.  Stir well until the sugar melts.  Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature, at least 1 hour.

Add the entire bottle of everclear.

Warning:  Everclear is flammable. As in REALLY FLAMMABLE. Do not put this into the pot when it is warm.  Do not use it near an open flame.

FOLKS.  Keep Everclear away from the heat!

Strain the allspice and cinnamon sticks from the liquid and bottle. Place one piece of the stick cinnamon in each bottle. This makes a very, very large batch.  Great for Christmas presents.  Not overly alcoholic.  I would guess it's about 40 proof but I haven't really done the math.

You won't be sorry.
