Apple Pie Moonshine

Apple Pie Moonshine - Easy Method with a toned down Alcohol Content. A serving 5 oz has the same alcohol content as a rum and coke.

So Apple Pie Moonshine – I keep seeing photos, and I keep thinking about making it and finally, I got some Everclear. Yeah, Everclear. I try to stay away from that stuff. Something to do with a Scorpions concert at Red Rocks when I was a kid. As a matter of fact, Everclear usually doesn’t even enter my head at all. Not on my radar.
