I found this recipe on allrecipes.com, then made and canned this recently, and it’s been getting rave reviews! It’s a deliciously spiked fall drink that can be served cool or warm (not hot!). With the high proof alcohol, this drink can last for six months or more in the fridge, so spread out the enjoyment. PS: Don’t fret. Even though there is high-proof alcohol, it’s cut well.
1 gal apple juice
1 gal apple cider
3 c white sugar
8 cinnamon sticks
1 bottle (750 ml) 190 proof grain alcohol
In a large pot, combine apple juice, apple cider, sugar and cinnamon sticks. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat and let cool completely. When juice mixture is cool, stir in the grain alcohol.
